The Special one is back! One thing that’s surely back with him is his giant-sized ego. Mourinho boasted in his recent interview claiming that “Giant Clubs need the Best Managers”, a clear shade on United’s past two managers.
Mourinho also said he isn’t interested in remembering what has happened at Old Trafford in the last 3 years under David Moyes and Louis Van Gaal despite the former lifting the prestigious FA Cup at Wembley, choosing rather to align himself with legendary Manager Sir Alex Ferguson. He Said;
“It comes in the right moment in my career because Manchester United is one of these clubs where you need really to be prepared for it because it is what I used to call a giant club. Giant Clubs must be for the best managers and I think I’m ready for it. We can look at our club now into two perspectives: one perspective is the past three years and another perspective is the club history, I think I prefer to forget the past three years. I think I prefer to focus on the giant club I have in my hands now.”
It’s indeed classic Mourinho that he has not deemed it fit to pay any sort of tribute to his predecessor except the one he feels operates at the same Managerial frequency with him. Mourinho said his aim of winning top trophies at Old Trafford was realistic and pledged he would give everything he had to achieve it. Hear him:
“What the players need to listen is: I want to win; I need the supporters and the players to feel I say that, but I think we can — really. I will give what I have, and what I don’t have — so I will give absolutely everything to try and go in the direction we all want. I think I know what they can give me. I think also they know what I can give them. I’m happy, I’m proud, I’m honoured, I’m everything.”
