So ahead of Monday's massive Premier League clash with Tottenham he refused to claim the fans’ support in their first two games was for him.

Mourinho said: “The supporters were fantastic in both matches.

“Not for me, for the team which is the only thing that matters.

“In my career I was never selfish and thinking about myself, I was always a club man. That’s what I am. I’m really happy when they support the team.”

Now Mourinho wants his players to reward the fans with victory on Monday night — particularly for sticking by them in defeat at Brighton eight days ago.

He said: “Against Leicester, you can say it was a normal situation because the team was playing well and was winning.

“To be supportive of the team at Brighton, where we didn’t play well and lost, it gives you a fantastic feeling.

“I hope the players also feel it and are ready to give everything they have.”

Meanwhile, Mourinho again refused to say if he is happy with his squad.

Asked the question at a tense press conference, he simply replied: “You know my answer.”
