Mourinho on why finishing second with Manchester United was his greatest achievement

16 May 2019, 16:45

Jose Mourinho has taken a sly dig at his former club, Manchester United, after another disappointing season in the English Premier League. 

The Portuguese was sacked mid-way through the just-concluded season, after a series of uninspiring results. 

He was replaced by Norwegian Ole Gunnar Solsjaker as an interim manager but was later confirmed as the man to lead the team to more glory. 

However, Mourinho has taken a dig at United, saying the problem is from the hierarchy and not the players only. 

"The problems are there, you can say that these are the players, the organisation, the ambition, I only say that I cannot say yes when you ask if Paul was the only one responsible," Mourinho said while speaking to L'Equipe.

He further defended his record at United, saying finishing second in the Premier League behind rivals City was his 'greatest achievement'. 

"I said nine or ten months ago that after winning eight championships, finishing second with United may have been my greatest achievement. Now people understand,"

United's season went from better to worse in the closing stages of the campaign, and could not manage to qualify for the Champions League next season, finishing sixth. 

Coacher Solskjaer has come under pressure as well, same as some of the key players including Paul Pogba
