Portuguese raises tensions ahead of this weekend’s big match.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has increased the pressure on under-fire Manchester United head coach David Moyes ahead of the two clubs’ meting in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon, according to reports in the Daily Mail.
The Scot is already facing many questions about the limp start that the Premier League champions have made so far to the new campaign after replacing former manager Sir Alex Ferguson in the Old Trafford hot seat last summer, especially as it now looks increasingly unlikely that the Red Devils will be able to retain their title come May.
And now the self-styled Special One has claimed that he has “sources” inside the Theatre of Dreams that are telling him that the United hierarchy are currently unhappy with the situation the club are in at present.
“My feeling, which is based on years of communicating with Sir Alex and some inside information, is Man United are not happy, but they are calm,” said Mourinho.
“They trust David. David trusts them. I don’t think David is under pressure. The pressure is something virtual. It is something that comes from the media as a consequence of not having the best results.
“The most important thing in all of this is not the pressure that comes from the outside, it’s the reality of the inside.
“The manager is calm and they are thinking this is our manager for the next two, three, four, five years. So they’re all together and are going to rebuild again a big team. The bad results will finish.
“They will get back on track, although it is probably too late to win the league because they’re too many points behind the leader.”
