◼️ The Portuguese strategist responds to criticism on the performance of the Red Devils this season.
Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho appealed on Thursday to “people who have a brain” to understand that his club is in a period of reconstruction, according to an interview with the US channel “CNN”.
The Red Devils have a disappointing season, despite being the richest club in the world: eliminated by Sevilla in the last 16 of the Champions League and 16 points behind the leader of the Premier League, his neighbor Manchester City, were also out of the League Cup defeated by Bristol.
“I understand the sadness caused by the elimination in the Champions League, but nothing more,” said the Portuguese coach, “in the history of football, and not only in England, the largest clubs have lived periods of transition” .
Highly criticized for United’s lack of ambition this season and for the “mediocre game” shown by the team, Mourinho defends himself by ensuring that he has to face an immense task after the failures with previous coaches, Louis van Gaal and David Moyes
“The reality is that for people endowed with a brain, with common sense and who knows what this sport is like, knows that we are in a period of transition”, concluded Mou, who recalled that he has already won two trophies last season with the United, the Europa League and the League Cup.
