Breaking- Jose Mourinho calls himself ‘the worst manager in the history of football’
Manchester United manager has called himself the worst manager in the history of the football in a sarcastic way ahead of their clash with Premier League champions Leicester City on Saturday.
The Red Devils go into the clash under pressure as they are already six points adrift of league leaders Manchester City and when asked about Leicester City retaining the Premier League title, Mourinho answered in the most Mourinho way possible.
“It is very difficult to retain the title,” Mourinho said in the pre-match press conference. “History says that. Not many in the Premier League have done it.
“One team was Manchester United and another was managed by the worst manager in the history of football (Mourinho at Chelsea 2005-2006).”
The manager has backed captain Wayne Rooney who is being heavily criticized for his poor performances for the club since the start of the season.
“Rooney’s form is like Man United’s form. We are a team – we are not Wayne Rooney, we are a team,” the 53-year-old coach said.
“But the way we think in the group is everybody is involved in every match, even the ones who are not playing.”
However, Mourinho has taken the heat to the critics as he labelled them as “Einsteins” who has been very critical of the club after their recent dip in form.
“The only thing that upsets me a little bit is the kind of criticism for my players. I would love to protect my players, but from you (the media) I can’t,” Mourinho said.
“It is completely out of my control. That gives me a feeling that it is hard. That is frustrating. The Einsteins need money to live … They can speak, they can write.
“They can criticise the work of other people. But I am a good man. I am a man of goodwill. I do lots of charity work. I am helping so many people. Why not also help feed the Einsteins.”
