The Manchester United Boss couldn't help but express his happiness for this honour, which was for his great achievements in the world of football as a coach, a coaching career which he started with Vitoria de Setubal's youth team.

"If you ask me if I appreciate this honour then of course I do". He told reporters
'If you ask me if I feel emotional about this honour then of course I do. If you ask me if I feel proud about all of your words, and of the 'Jose Mourinho Avenue,' then yes. Yes to all of that."

He is known to visit Setubal regularly, despite having a family in London and says he does that because there is a part of the place that never goes with him whenever he travels.

"I continue to want to visit Setubal, and just be myself. I come to Setubal because I love Setubal. I come to Setubal because I have my mum here.

"I come to Setubal because I feel close to my dad here. I come to Setubal because my wife is another Setubalense, despite not being born here. Because my kids never lived here and they love Setubal the same or even more than me.

"And because I continue to have my friends, and the people in the street who called me 'Ze' [short for Jose]. And who refrain from gimmicks like: 'The Special One.'"
