Mourinho said United’s huge fan base have a big part in guiding the club back to its former glories.
He added: “I understand that they expect a lot from me but I also expect a lot from them,” he declared. “There is no chance we will be happy if we are not together and I think the passion [they have] for this club is really amazing.
“It’s a new chapter in the club’s life. Always when you change a manager, I feel it is a sad moment but it is a new chapter now.
“We have brought a few new faces in, we will keep some others but, in the end, it doesn’t matter who the manager is, it doesn’t who the new players are or who is staying or leaving, it’s Man United and Man United is much more than any one of us.
