Mourinho’s five-star hotel bill since joining Man United has hit £150,000

Date Posted,June 6, 2017

Manchester United supremo Jose Mourinho has spent a year at a luxury five star hotel – running up a bill of £150,000.

And he’s been told privately by Red Devils chiefs they have no issue with him seeing out the whole of his contract in a £411-a-night suite at the luxury Lowry Hotel.

That would mean his stay at his Salford base costing more than £500,000 when he finally checks out at the end of his three-year deal.

He told fanzine United We Stand that he doubted he’d spend the duration of his stay at Old Trafford at the hotel and said he might move into a flat.

The 54-year-old manager also described suggestions he was unhappy in the city as “total bull****”.

And he had joked that his life was a “disaster”, given that he was followed by paparazzi on the rare occasions he ventured outside the hotel socially but said his comments were taken out of context.

He added: “I don’t go to cities to enjoy cities, I go to cities to work, to be a football manager.”

But picking up two major trophies this season, the heat is off the outspoken boss.

His wife and two children remain at his London mansion and he checked into the hotel after signing for the club before the beginning of the season.

The club picked up the tab for the first weeks of his stay but refused to comment on whether they are still paying Jose’s monster bill.
