Mourinho: Why managing Man United ‘was not an easy time’

Date published: Friday 2nd August 2019 9:07

Jose Mourinho does not understand why his Manchester United did not receive the credit it warranted.

Mourinho spent two and a half years at Old Trafford before being sacked in December 2018 with the club in disarray.

The Portuguese won the Europa League and League Cup, finishing second in the Premier League and losing an FA Cup final.

But his reign was characterised by clashes with players, most notably Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw.

Still looking for his next club, Mourinho feels that his work at United was overlooked and unfairly derided.

“I can just say that the Manchester United time was not an easy time,” he told Sky Sports.

“I always felt that to win the Europa League was fantastic and it didn’t look like it was, the way people approach it.

“To finish second was even more than that, so probably I was feeling a little bit like: ‘Wow, I’m working well, I’m giving everything and I’m not getting what I think that deserves’.

“The only thing I can promise you is that when I have the next club, the next project, I will be so, so happy that I will walk into that press conference with a big smile. That I can promise.”
