Jose Mourinho defends Manchester United managerial record

2 min read

Jose Mourinho has insisted he won everything that was possible during his stint at Manchester United and has fond memories of the club’s supporters.

The Portuguese manager, now in charge of Tottenham Hotspur, was sacked in December 2018 and replaced by current United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Mourinho won the 2017 Europa League and League Cup with United and finished second in the 2017/18 Premier League.

Now he prepares to face Solskjaer for the third time since becoming Spurs boss, with Mourinho failing to record a win against United with his latest club so far. He has defended his record at Old Trafford on the eve of Sunday’s Premier League contest.

“I expected that, I never had problems in the club,” Mourinho said of United in a pre-match press conference. “The fans, they know that I gave everything that I could.

“I won what was possible to win, I didn’t win what was not possible to win. I gave everything, I gave my life to the club and my professionalism, like I always do.

“Internally, lots of friends for life, lots of amazing people that I met in the club. I only have good feelings, feelings that I will have to forget in 90 minutes because for 90 minutes, they want to win, I want to win, that’s football.”

Mourinho also addressed the final few days of the transfer window and how he intends to balance his Spurs squad, who have added Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon, among others this summer. Both players were linked with United.

“My job is not to keep them happy. My job is to do the best for the club and to get the best possible results,” Mourinho said.

“But it is certain that I agree that it’s impossible to keep everybody happy when you have so many players because every weekend, every match, some players will not be playing and that’s not good for them especially when they are good players.

“But at the same time, we are a big club, we want to be bigger, we want to play in all the competitions, we have six matches in Europa League group phase playing on a Thursday and we are for sure to get lots of matches at Sunday at 12 o’clock or Sunday 3pm.”
