Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho met each other during Manchester United’s Premier League clash at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal and Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho have great mutual respect for each other.

Mourinho worked under Van Gaal at Barcelona, and they have maintained a strong relationship with each other since.

On Sunday, the duo were reunited ahead of United’s Premier League clash against Chelsea at Old Trafford.

How much Van Gaal and Mourinho revere each other was demonstrated during the ‘meet and greet’ session.

During the match, of course, Van Gaal and Mourinho were rivals, but after the final whistle, once again they showed mutual respect.
