Tuchel Amused As Mourinho Watchs Dortmund Draw



Jose Mourinho made an appearance in Germany’s capital on Saturday to watch Hertha Berlin’s Bundesliga home match against high-flying Borussia Dortmund, to the amusement of the visitors’ coach Thomas Tuchel.

Mourinho was invited to the match at Berlin’s Olympic Stadium by Dortmund’s CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke as hosts Hertha held Borussia to an uninspiring goalless draw.

The visit came just 24 hours after reports
Mourinho ‘s representatives held talks with Manchester United about replacing Louis van Gaal as manager of the Premier League club.

The 53-year-old Mourinho has been linked with the Old Trafford post since being sacked by Chelsea in December and Tuchel showed some comic timing when asked about Mourinho ‘s visit.

Tuchel has only been Dortmund’s head coach since the start of the season with his predecessor Jurgen Klopp now in charge of Liverpool.

“I did not know (about the invite) and it’s really not okay,” said Tuchel with mock indignation in the post-match press conference in reference to
Mourinho .

After a short pause for effect, he continued: “The truth is: I knew about it (before hand) and, of course, it’s completely ok.

“But if he replaces me next week, then it’s not okay again,” he added with a broad grin.
Dortmund are second in Germany’s top flight behind Bayern Munich with Tuchel’s side ten points clear of third-placed Hertha.
