Manchester United were in trouble before I took over- Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho, who single-handedly saw Manchester United through to the winning of three trophies this season, though ended the season at 6th position on the table, claimed the Red Devils were in a more worst form than now when he took over from the former coach Louis van Gaal.

Jose in a statement with Expresso, revealed that he is very bad when it comes to do with picking a team as a coach.

According to him;

“I’m really bad at picking teams, I always choose teams that are, as they say in England, in big trouble.

“Inter were in big trouble, Real Madrid were in big trouble, Manchester United in big trouble.”

Jose Mourinho further explained what he meant by “Big Trouble,” in his statement and according to him;

“What does ‘big trouble’ mean? It means that they are teams that want to win but are thousands of miles away from winning.

“The size and history of the club is one thing, but the actuality of the club is another.

“Take the Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos who lifted the Champions League trophy the other day and who is now a three-time European champion as an example.

“When I came to Real Madrid in 2010, he had never played in the quarter-finals. Not just the final or the semi-final, he had never played the quarter-finals of the Champions League.”

The Manchester United Boss, who took over the team just 12 months ago, succeeded in winning the Community Shield, EFL Cup and Europa League.
