[espl_divider divider_color=”#e62132″ link_color=”#e62132″ size=”4″ margin=”20″]While speaking on Giggs’s departure, Mourinho said that it was not his responsibility or fault that the Man Utd legend lfet the club. He went on to assure that if Giggs comes back during his time at Old Trafford, he will welcome him back to the club.


[espl_divider divider_color=”#e62132″ link_color=”#e62132″ size=”4″ margin=”20″]Spaeking on Rooney: “In football there are many jobs on the field. I think the one that is more difficult to find is the guy that puts the ball in the net. Players change their characteristics during the years and it is normal that a player at that age changes a little bit.”

“But there is something you will never change and that is the natural appetite to put the ball in the net.”

“So maybe he is not a striker anymore, a No 9, but with me he is never a No 6, playing 50 metres from the goal. He will be a 9, a 10, a nine and a half. But not 6, not even 8.”


[espl_divider divider_color=”#e62132″ link_color=”#e62132″ size=”4″ margin=”20″]”20 teams can win the title… it doesn’t make sense at all to focus on one team and I will not be doing that. I am the manager of the biggest club in the UK… so I’m going to focus on ourselves.”


[espl_divider divider_color=”#e62132″ link_color=”#e62132″ size=”4″ margin=”20″]”We decided four targets. From these targets, we have three. Until we don’t have the fourth, we are still working hard. Myself and the structure.”

“When we have the fourth, I will breathe.”


[espl_divider divider_color=”#e62132″ link_color=”#e62132″ size=”4″ margin=”20″]”When people have year after year a certain type of menu, the menu has to change for better not worse.”

“For United fans, for many years, success was just routine. In the last three years, I want to forget.”

“I don’t want the players to think we need to do better. What is to do better? Finish fourth. Finishing fourth is not the aim. This is what I do with myself.”


[espl_divider divider_color=”#e62132″ link_color=”#e62132″ size=”4″ margin=”20″]”There are some manager who won the title 10 years ago, some have not won a title ever. the last time I won the title was one year ago. So if I have something to prove, imagine the others.”


[espl_divider divider_color=”#e62132″ link_color=”#e62132″ size=”4″ margin=”20″]”That was not important to me. I play against myself. I feel I have to prove not to the others, but I have to prove to myself.”

“I will never be able to work without success. That is my nature, I have always to find the reasons why I have always many questions towards myself.”


[espl_divider divider_color=”#e62132″ link_color=”#e62132″ size=”4″ margin=”20″]”I want everything. I want to win matches, I want to play well. I want to score goals, I don’t wan to concede goals. I want everything. Of course, we are not going to get everything. But we want to.”

“I was never very good at hiding behind words and philosophies, I never tried to be good at that. I was always much more aggressive in my approach with the risks that can bring. Be easy, even honest and pragmatic to focus on the three years and focus on the fact we didn’t quality for the Champions League and so on.”


[espl_divider divider_color=”#e62132″ link_color=”#e62132″ size=”4″ margin=”20″]”Let’s work and let’s try to be back in the Champions League and top four and do well in the Europa League. I am not good on that, I prefer to be more aggressive and to be aggressive is to say: ‘we want to win.”

“You can win a short competition, a couple of matches, without playing well. But you cannot win competitions without playing well.”


[espl_divider divider_color=”#e62132″ link_color=”#e62132″ size=”4″ margin=”20″]”I am where I want to be. I want to be in this club, in this country, in the Premier League and in the domestic cups. I feel a bit frustrated that I am not playing Champions League. I do not hide I chase Sir Alex’s records in the Champions League.”

“Hopefully it is only one season we are not there. Man United is a Champions League club and we have to make sure that July 2017, instead of waiting for the Europa League draw, we have to make sure this club is where it needs to be.”


[espl_divider divider_color=”#e62132″ link_color=”#e62132″ size=”4″ margin=”20″]”It doesn’t make me nervous. It comes at the right moment of my career. I arrive at a club that is difficult to describe. It’s not a dream job, it’s reality. It’s a job everyone wants. It’s not one everyone gets to have and I have it.”

“I know the responsibility and at the same time I know the legacy. I know the history of this club. I know what the fans expect from me.”
