Jose Mourinho: Says he needs pressure in order to win things

The Real Madrid boss has won three trophies since taking over at the Bernabeu in summer 2010 but has found himself under pressure after seeing his side fall 16 points behind Primera Liga leaders Barcelona in the standings.

Mourinho says he would like to have the stability Wenger has at Arsenal but admits the Gunners' seven-year trophy drought would not sit well with him.

He told The Sun: "Yes I would love to have that stability at a club.

"But at the same time I think for my mentality I also need the pressure to succeed.

"And if no one imposes that pressure on me then I would impose that pressure on myself. The pressure to win things.

"Yes it's possible to be one or two seasons building for the future and not being at the level to win things.

"But no longer, because my mentality is I always need the pressure of winning things."

He added: "Maybe it could happen soon for Arsenal.

"They play good football and produce good players.

"And they're always buying players in every transfer window so surely sooner or later they should do something, should win something."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
