Liverpool vs Tottenham: Why I wasn’t successful at Manchester United – Mourinho

Jose Mourinho has said he needs more time to achieve success at Manchester United but was not given the opportunity.

The Portuguese hopes to stay much longer at Tottenham as he gets the north London club flying high to start the 2020-21 season.

Spurs are in first place in the Premier League on goal difference over Liverpool, with the two sides set to face each other in a top-of-the-table clash on Wednesday.

The former Chelsea boss joined Tottenham 11 months after he was shown the exit door at Manchester United.

He left United after two and a half years in charge, having experienced quick success with several clubs earlier in his career.

The former Inter Milan manager said United was a long-term project and not like those clubs he joined, won trophies and say ‘goodbye’.

“In a certain period of my career, with a profile of the club I was getting in hands, we didn’t need as much time to reach success,” Mourinho said as quoted by Goal.

“The first club where I felt I needed time and time was not given was at Manchester United because I felt that I left at the middle of the process, but I learned very early to respect decisions, which I did at United.

“Now, in Tottenham, I know the profile of the job I have in hand, and hopefully until now I am enjoying very, very much to be in the club, I believe that the club is happy to work with me, so I see myself staying for a long time.”

However, the former Porto, Real Madrid and United boss suggested that he would leave the club earlier if he is able to accelerate the process of achieving success.
