Mourinho says Sir Alex Ferguson would agree with him over Solskjaer’s comments

2 min read

Jose Mourinho says he respects Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s view on trophies but believes Sir Alex Ferguson would not agree with it.

Solskjaer made headlines recently when he said that winning trophies is not the be-all and end-all for him as a manager, and that he is instead keen to see Manchester United continuing to make progress.

Yet Mourinho has taken a different view – and says Sir Alex Ferguson would have done the same.

He said: “It’s his opinion. I’m pretty sure his big boss Sir Alex had a different opinion about it.

“But I respect what Solskjaer thinks. I think different.

“Freedom of thinking, freedom of ideas, and if that is what he thinks that is fine by me. It’s not a problem for me, he’s not being disrespectful to anyone.

“But I repeat I believe his big boss, and the biggest in Premier League history, has a different view in relation to that.”

Mourinho’s Spurs side are set to come up against United on Sunday.

Last weekend saw Spurs drop points at struggling Newcastle United when they failed to hold onto a 2-1 lead, with Mourinho aiming a thinly-veiled dig at his players post-match.

Asked if he wished to clarify his comments, the Portuguese manager said there was nothing to clarify.

He said: “I can’t clarify and I can’t clarify because you spoke about it for the whole week.

“You play the game, enjoy the game during the whole week and now I want to enjoy my game at 1pm and now I’m here to answer to the question that you already answered for the whole week.

“There is nothing for me to clarify.

“If I have to clarify I clarify with my people and not with the people who knows everything and wrote and spoke and sold papers and with audiences on radios and TVs.

“You don’t even pay me a percentage so I’m not going to play the game.”
