Defiant Jose Mourinho defends record after Man United slump

Defiant Jose Mourinho defends record after Man United slump

He was similarly defiant when asked if that would still apply if he failed to win the championship with United.

With a trip to Burnley on Sunday however, it was time for Mourinho to once again face the music, and his responses to probing questions were characteristically bullish and unapologetic. "Or information? You never spend time reading, for example, Hegel?"

'Just as an example, Hegel says the truth is in the whole.

Mourinho is not the only figure to blame at Old Trafford, where the team have not won the Premier League since Ferguson's last season in 2012-13. "To the manager who finished fifth".

Mourinho then pointed to Liverpool's Jürgen Klopp and Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino, neither of whom has won the Premier League.

Jose Mourinho decided to make six changes to the starting eleven that lost at Brighton & Hove Albion last weekend with Smalling among the players recalled to take on Spurs at Old Trafford on Monday night.

After the Spurs defeat on Monday night the Manchester United manager demanded "respect" from the media.

"That's his problem", Mourinho said of Klopp. I tell you what I think, how he feels. "And I answer the question". "That's probably not what you want to admit and you do what you want". The former Chelsea boss said that last season was successful, even if he did not win any silverware.

Staffan de Mistura, the UN Special Envoy for Syria, is calling for a humanitarian corridor to free three million people trapped there.

In his press conference after the Spurs defeat, Mourinho made note of his three Premier League titles.

A trophy-less last season coupled with the disastrous start to the current campaign has left many to believe that his time at Old Trafford might be up. I am the only manager in the world that won in Italy, Spain and England, and by winning eight titles, not small titles or countries.

Mourinho referred to United's second-place finish last season.

Champions Manchester City will expect to get back to winning ways at home to Newcastle United in a match that pits Pep Guardiola against his fellow Spaniard Rafa Benitez.

"There's no doubt about his quality".

Asked about Tottenham's fans taunting him with chants of "you're not special anymore" at the end of United's defeat, Mourinho hit back. Of course we are judged for the titles we get now, especially if you have won titles as it can work.

While delivering a somewhat memorable press conference after the game, he noted how supporters responded to United's performance by applauding them off the pitch, reminding reporters in the room that fans are always the best judge of a how a team has played.
