Jose Mourinho speaks about Manchester United and his future

Jose Mourinho speaks about Manchester United and his future

In his first interview since leaving Manchester United, he told BeIN Sports: "I want to coach".

Continuing this theme of painting under-achievements as successes, Mourinho has claimed that finishing second with Manchester United last season is one of his greatest accomplishments of his managerial career.

Former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho took a subtle dig at the club's structure and Paul Pogba while presumably opening up about what went wrong for him there.

The Belgian global has barely figured since Jose Mourinho was sacked in December and several teams are looking at the 31-year-old including Porto, AC Milan and Guangzhou Evergrande says The Mirror. Where I am going to stay is where I belong, I belong to top football.

Mourinho says he is "too young" to consider retirement and insists he still belongs at the top level.

That was the position Mourinho was desperate to bolster before his departure and after De Gea had to make a record 11 saves against Spurs, there's clearly still an issue with United's back line.


"I am too young, I am in football for a long, long time but I will be 56 in a couple of weeks and am really too young".

Mourinho made his point by talking about the set-up that managers need to have in place in order to be successful.

"It is very easy to play well and not win", Mourinho said. "It is very easy to be behind an idea of a certain football without results", he continued.

"And also why I accept to be here and accept in the next period where I suppose not be working immediately is also to know the new football better and to know the new football better is to understand what is behind the cameras".

"The people that win and the people who win consistently - you can win isolated and then disappear - the people who win consistently have a different idea about that".

Manchester United interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly ready to let Marouane Fellaini leave this January - even though he signed a new contract last summer.
