Even Jose Mourinho can crack a joke every now and then.

Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea is the talk of the soccer world after his incredible performance in United’s 3-1 win over Arsenal that saw the Spaniard make a Premier League record 14 saves. But Mourinho is moving on from that.

With Sergio Romero – United’s goalie on Cup duty – starting against CSKA Moscow midweek in Champions League play, to be backed up by 21-year-old Joel Pereira, Mourinho is sticking to the script. With a wry smile.
