What they said
“This is Jose Mourinho’s most exciting & most challenging job yet.
“The first thing he needs to do is install ‘winning mentality’ back into the club. Get this ingredient back into the players but also the people that work inside the club day to day.
“Give them back that belief so it is breathing throughout the club again, which is so important. But doing the above in the Manchester United way is equally as important.”
“The most important thing in football is that people don’t come to the stadium to see how good the manager is. They come to see how good our players are,” he said.
“It’s not just this year – there have been many, many good managers in the Premier League, with Jose, with Jurgen Klopp, with Antonio Conte, with Claudio Ranieri, with Mauricio Pochettino, with Ronald Koeman.”
“I see it [working] well. If that’s what Manchester want, I wish him well. I hope that Manchester can get back to what it was. It hurts me seeing Manchester United like that because is a club that I carry in my heart. I hope he can put United back on track.”
