Jose Mourinho basically admits he loves himself more than Manchester United

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho gave a rather telling answer to a question in his press conference today.

When asked about his love for United, the Portuguese pretty much just responded by talking about himself and his own greatness.

Mourinho is under growing pressure at the moment after a poor start to the 2018/19 campaign, with the Red Devils losing two of their opening three Premier League games.

United started with an unconvincing 2-1 win over Leicester City, and have since lost 3-2 to Brighton and 3-0 to Tottenham.

While many are questioning if Mourinho is now past his best after a difficult few years, the 55-year-old himself is having none of it.

When asked about his love for United and what it meant to be the manager of the club, he admitted they are a great club, but quickly added that he is also one of the greatest managers in the world, as quoted in the tweet below from journalist Chris Winterburn.

While this was unquestionably true for many years, one would now argue the former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss would do well to scrape into the top ten.

His last major league title win was in 2014/15, and he hasn’t managed to win the Champions League again since he led Inter Milan to the trophy in 2009/10.

With United, he has only collected small trophies and his sides have not generally played particularly attractive football – and both success and entertainment are key to doing the job well at Old Trafford.
