Mourinho suffered his first defeat as Tottenham manager on Wednesday , losing 2 – 1 to former employers Manchester United .

I was invited by the Prince to be there , but I prefer to be in the match against Burnley. ”

Pushed as to whether he expected a Joshua victory , Mourinho replied, “ I’ m not an expert .

I just love the sport .

I like Anthony very much because he ’ s a great kid and I hope he wins.

But in sport you can lose . So let’ s see . ” TV
