Jose Mourinho is back at Stamford Bridge as his Manchester United team take on Chelsea.

It’s been more than 10 months since the Portuguese left the Blues after losing the support of some of his players and staff.

However, one person who had his back throughout last season’s difficult period was Chelsea captain John Terry.

Mourinho and Terry won several trophies together, including the Premier League title in 2014-15, with the centre back hailing United’s appointment of the 53-year-old in the summer.

"It's fantastic news for Manchester United," Terry said, per Sky Sports.

"I'm sure that United's fans and players will be delighted with that because, as I've said many times before, he's the best manager I've worked under.

"It was unfortunate the way it ended at Chelsea this year but I wish him well because he's also a great man. He'll be great for Manchester United, I'm sure.”

Mourinho and Terry shared a warm embrace on the touchline ahead of the game, which you can see below.

Per Sky Sports, Terry played in 267 of Mourinho’s 321 games as Chelsea boss.

The United boss was fortunate to have Terry at his best. But at the age of 35, injures are becoming more and more of a problem for the ex-England international, who is on the bench as he continues his recovery from an ankle injury that has kept him out since mid-September.
