But former Middlesbrough boss Karanka says his friend is much more relaxed than in his first spell at Chelsea.
“I think he’s calmer now,” he said on Sky Sports.
“Maybe the people who don’t know him can’t relate, but the people who know him know he’s calm.
“I think it’s been good so far. I hope they can get the position in the Champions League.
“The first season he’s won two titles, getting another one and the Champions League would be a very good start for him.
“I was visiting them last week in Carrington because they are good friends, I’ve learnt a lot from them. They helped me a lot and I have a very good relationship with them.”
Mourinho is the third manager United have had since Sir Alex Ferguson left the club and Karanka believes he is the right man to lead them back to their glory days.
“Jose always tries to win, he’s won titles, he’s going to play in the Europa League final,” he added.
“For sure Manchester United will win important titles with Mourinho in the future because he’s building a team.
“Since Sir Alex it’s not been easy for Manchester United and I think Jose is the right person because he’s going to win good titles.”
