The Portuguese was the manager of the Red Devils for a period of over two years and yet, he never bought a house in the city and lived at Lowry hotel instead because, according to him, he didn’t want to clean the house by himself and also cook his own food.
"You know how I would be unhappy? I would be unhappy if I was in a house on my own," he said, as per Goal.

"I would have to clean, I don't want. I would have to iron, I don't know how to. I would have to cook, I would cook fried eggs and sausages. That's the only thing I can do. I would be very unhappy. I lived in an amazing apartment, it was not a room. It was mine all the time. It was not like after one week I had to leave."
"No, it was mine. I left everything there, I had my television, my books, my computer. It was a flat, with 'Bring me a caffe latte, please' or 'I don’t want to go down for dinner, bring my dinner up'.
"I was watching football or doing work with one of my assistants and I would ask: 'Bring us food'.
I had everything, if I was in an apartment alone it would be much more difficult. I was fine, more than fine."
