Jose Mourinho takes swipe at Man Utd over job expectations after ugly Old Trafford exit

JOSE MOURINHO has aimed another dig at Manchester United.

The Roma manager was axed by the Red Devils in December 2018 after overseeing what was at the time their worst start to a league season in 28 years.

Mourinho, 59, subsequently managed Tottenham for 17 months before being sacked by the North Londoners – subsequently taking over at Roma.

The Portuguese has failed to guide his new side into Italy’s top four, but will take part in the inaugural Europa Conference League final.

Ahead of Europe’s third-tier competition’s showpiece event against Feyenoord in Tirana, Mourinho has been discussing the fortunes of some of the continent’s older managers, including Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti.

He couldn’t resist taking a dig at United and Spurs, hinting that they are clubs that no longer expect their managers to win trophies.

Mourinho said: “I believe that the problem with Carlo Ancelotti was that when you coach Everton you are not about to win the Champions League.

“And with me, you know, people they saw me taking up jobs where they thought that I could win trophies but they were not jobs where we were expected to lift trophies.

“But when you have such a winning career on a cyclical basis so to speak, you can expect that, people can say that.

“Personally I’m not worried about this. I do not think and focus on the generations, I focus on quality.

“It’s a matter of quality, motivation, passion. Without passion you are finished. Without pressure in the build-up to big games you are finished.

“I know very well myself, I know very well Carlito as well, but there are more examples that we could make.

“But we are the ones who will call it when we want to stop, and I’m afraid people will have to wait a long time before I say that it’s over!”

Mourinho was the last manager to win a trophy at United, bagging the League Cup and Europa League in 2017 – while also counting that season’s Community Shield among his list of honours.

Speaking to Sky Sports last week, he aimed another thinly veiled dig at his old team, saying: “We won together three titles at Man United, unfortunately the last three titles of Man United.
