"I am the manager of the one of the greatest clubs in the world but I'm also one of the greatest managers in the world", said Mourinho, who was the asked if would still be seen as a great coach if he doesn't win a league title at United. I had great success last season that's what you probably don't want to admit. I repeat that two seasons ago we had a fantastic season by winning the Europa League, this season and last season everybody thought Atletico Madrid were incredible because they won the Europa League after being knocked out of the Champions League.

And Mourinho says the 29-year-old is planning to use the two-week worldwide break to improve his fitness ahead of a busy schedule for United.

"It's been a big week for him that ends with a very important match against Burnley, this is the most important thing", Mourinho told a news conference on Friday.

They sang out loud "you are getting sacked in the morning" towards Mourinho, who has found himself in a hard position at the start of the season following back-to-back Premier League defeats for Manchester United. We dropped two points or we won one point at Wolves. That's easy. I had, last season, great success. "I knew that because finishing second last season was hard".

"I think you saw a team that wanted it to carry on considering how many have been saying that "no-one wants it", but that is the mentally here, we want to win every game that we play", said Dyche.


United have lost two of their opening three league games and, following a 3-0 defeat at home by Tottenham on Monday, Mourinho walked out of a news conference demanding respect.

"I have won eight titles".

Continuing to talk about Mourinho, the City manager said, "When we win we are good, when we don't we are not good, it's simple like that".

"The United fans were signing Special One and they were not singing". Manager Jose Mourinho is under intense pressure and even though he claims that he has the support of his fans, he needs results in the near future to be comfortable with his job.

"Do you ask that question to the manager that finished third in the Premier League or fourth?"
