Today he’s playing in the Premier League at 17. Will he play against Bayern Munich? I don’t know. All I can say is Harry Kane won’t. Who plays, we’ll see.” Etienne Fermie8 Dec 2019, 5:25 pmMOURINHO: “From the outside I had a feeling. I remember speaking to Sir Alex about Ji Sung-park. Maybe it’s a cultural thing. They’re very coachable. The kid is fantastic. I’m very happy, so happy.” Etienne Fermie8 Dec 2019, 5:19 pmMOURINHO: “Even before the goal, my son calls him Sonaldo after Ronaldo Luís Nazário.
