Former Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has come out to defend himself after football pundits said he failed at United and Spurs.
Jose Mourinho Insists He Did not Fail in England
The 58-year-old was sacked by Tottenham last year after Manchester United sacked him. In Tottenham, Jose Mourinho took the club to the League Cup final before he was sacked while he won the Europa trophy and League Cup before he was fired.
On Thursday, he spoke at a press conference to mark his role as head coach at Roma.
“What has considered a disaster for me is something other coaches have never achieved in their lives,” he said. “But that’s the way it is, and that’s down to me. “At my last three clubs, I won the Premier League with Chelsea, I won three trophies with Manchester United, and I made it to the League Cup final with Tottenham.”
Mourinho is one of the most successful coaches in the world of football, having previously managed Chelsea, Real Madrid, Inter Milan, Porto and Manchester United.
After his sack by Spurs, fans of the club said he failed in as he failed in United. The Portugues said he did not fail as he won two trophies at United before his departure, and also, he was on the verge of winning a trophy for Spurs before his sack.
The manager took Tottenham to the Carabao Cup final, which he claims he would have won because he has never lost a final before.
