Mourinho takes aim at Klopp & Pochettino

Jose Mourinho was sacked as Manchester United boss in December of last year.

Mourinho’s spell at Old Trafford was arguably the poorest in his managerial career.

Despite this, Mourinho still guided United to a Europe League win, League Cup win and Community Shield win.

Even though he lifted three trophies at United, Mourinho was often criticised.

However, the likes of Jurgen Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino are often praised for the job they do at Liverpool and Tottenham despite not winning any silverware.

As a result, Mourinho appears to have taken a dig at the duo:

 “I won titles everywhere I have been and I cannot run away from my mentality.

“Some coaches like to sell the idea of a philosophy, but you have to sell the philosophy after you win. If you win nothing what is the point?

“If your team plays very well, your team wins, so I don’t like these contradictions we have in football nowadays.”As quoted by the Evening Standard.

Mourinho eyeing managerial return

In the same interview, Mourinho spoke at length about when he wants to return to management.

The former United coach was linked with the Real Madrid job recently but Zinedine Zidane has since taken that.

Mourinho claims he has had ‘three or four’ different offers already, which he has rejected and he wants to be back in management by June of this year:

“What I have in mind is that I would like to be back in June for a new club and a new pre-season.

“I know what I don’t want and that is the reason why I have had to say no to three or four different offers.” As quoted by the Evening Standard.

One of those offers is believed to be from Benfica.
