JOSE MOURINHO has had a sly dig at former club Chelsea in Man United’s season ticket renewal brochure.

The Special One claimed the Blues fans lacked the passion of supporters at Old Trafford.

He wrote in the brochure that he will look to “achieve more” next season and wants “to entertain, to attack, to score goals, to win”.

And in comments that will wound Chelsea fans, he added: “The crowd at Old Trafford must play its part too.

“I have to say I’ve been impressed by your dedication and commitment, as season ticket holders here at United.

He added that he needs the support of the fans at Old Trafford to build on Sunday’s EFL Cup success

“I’ve managed several clubs and I have never seen such unrivalled passion. The stadium is full every time we play and the support the players receive is special.”

His comments about United’s supporters are the polar opposite to what he said about Chelsea fans in 2014.

Following a match against QPR, he said Stamford Bridge felt like “an empty stadium”.

Laying into fans in West London, he added: “I can clearly say we are the team to get less support in home matches.

“I think it’s getting worse. When comparing to my previous time, I think it’s getting worse.

“I don’t question the passion and the love – I’m nobody to question that and I know clearly that’s not true.

“Chelsea fans show us their passion for this club every day, but there is a certain line of living [way of behaving] at the matches at Stamford Bridge.”
