Jose Mourinho is already holding court in his new surrounds as Manchester United manager and, in that capacity, enjoyed the company of one of the all time greats

Earlier this week, Damien Duff said that his old boss, Jose Mourinho, was finally in his dream job. This, the former Chelsea winger claimed, was why management’s great agitator would put down roots at Old Trafford.

And not, as has always been the case, depart in acrimony after roughly three seasons. Since his first event as Louis van Gaal’s successor, during which he said all the right things and solemnly vowed to return United to greatness, Mourinho hasn’t made a peep.

Well the silence has been broken, albeit via social media, and as is the Portuguese’s wont, he did so with unmistakable bombast.

Looking like a cat that got the cream, Mourinho showed none other than Pele around his ‘new house’ and the pair posed for a photo to chronicle their meeting. Arguably the greatest player ever having the chats with arguably the greatest arguer ever.

Mourinho’s first ever Instagram post was to reveal his Manchester United contract so he's continuing in that vein. Maybe the next one will be with Zlatan Ibrahimović or Paul Pogba.
