Mourinho on the impossible task of sparing the rod at Man Utd

Mourinho on the impossible task of sparing the rod at Man Utd - manchester united, José Mourinho

Jose Mourinho has taken another swipe at former club Manchester United, saying “the problems are there” for all to see.

The Portuguese manager was relieved of his duties mid-season. A decision which seemed rather right, as a resurgent Manchester United returned to the top four of the Premier League table – or so we thought. As they eventually came crashing at the bitter end of the season.

Speaking on his former job, Jose Mourinho highlighted the extreme conditions required to achieve success in his second season, as well as its eventual effects, which indirectly led to his sacking.

“Generally, the players can feel a certain erosion, especially when you ask a lot of them.” Jose Mourinho told L’Equipe.

“When I say that the second season was fantastic, I say it because the potential and the objectives were met.

“I really squeezed, like an orange, to achieve them. When you have a very professional group of players who are ambitious, hard-working and talented, at a structured club, you don’t have that erosion.

“When you are almost alone, in that you don’t have the support of the club close to you, while certain players go somewhat against the coach, who is the nice guy.

“I don’t want to be the nice guy, because the nice guy, after three months, is a puppet and that doesn’t end well.”

He added: “The problems are there, you can say that these are the players, the organisation, the ambition.

“I only say that I cannot say ‘yes’ when you ask if Paul was the only one responsible.”
