Roma manager, Jose Mourinho has come out to defend his managerial record in the Premier League. He recently came out to explain why he feels he is judged differently to other managers.
According to him, his trophy record proves he has been a success in English football, and he even considers himself a victim of all he has done in the past.
Mourinho added that his immediate target at Roma is to win the first competitive game in the Serie A.
His words, “I am a victim of everything I have done before. I am victim of how people look at me now, unfortunately.”
“At Manchester United, I won three trophies and it was called a disaster. At Tottenham, after arriving in a tough moment, I reached a final that I was unable to lead the side out in. What is a disaster for me would be an amazing achievement for others.”
“The targets? Speaking in a very pragmatic way, our first target is to win the first competitive game we have. Then after that, we will think about the next target. There is a job to be done, this team and this club need to improve each and every day. We have started in that regard with all the infrastructure at Trigoria.”
“So that is our objective: every day we need to do better and to be better.”
On those that do not consider him a top coach anymore, “I have already responded to that: at the last three clubs I have worked for, I won a league title with Chelsea, three trophies with Manchester United, and reached a final that I could not manage in with Tottenham.”
“What is a disaster for me, others have never done in their life. It’s my fault.”
“I have not spoken to anyone [about joining Roma].”
“You can choose to believe whether that is true or not, but I have not spoken to anyone. I speak with [Roma general manager] Tiago [Pinto], I speak with the ownership, I speak with different people within the club… but as far as players go, I have not spoken with any of them.”
