Jose Mourinho was this morning, for the first time, unveiled as the
manager of the World’s most popular football team Manchester United.
Portuguese wasted no time in suggesting Man United had lost sight of
their stature and says he wants to win the Premier League title.

“It is difficult for me to describe and find the right words for this
club. I don’t like the denomination that people use like ‘dream job’.
This is not a dream job, this is reality – I am Manchester United
manager. The reality is that this is a job that everyone wants, but not
many people get to have, yet I have it,” he enthused. 

“I know the responsibility, the expectation, the legacy and what is
behind me at this club. I know what the fans expect of me and this
challenge doesn’t make me nervous because my history in the last ten
years is to live with big clubs’ expectations. I believe it is the right
moment in my career, where I feel very well prepared and stable, with a
great motivation. I can say that I am where I want to be; I want to be
in this club, I want to be in this country, in the Premier League and
the domestic cups.”

Mourinho also talked about his desire, both from a personal and team
perspective, to ensure the Reds get back into the Champions League as
soon as possible.

“I am a bit disappointed that I am not in the Champions
League, as I do not hide that I chase Sir Alex’s records in that
competition – the number of matches as a manager. I am around 130
matches, maybe a little bit more or less. Hopefully it will only be one
season that we are not there,” he added. I say ‘we’ because the club is
much more important than myself. Man United is a Champions League club
and we have to make sure that in July 2017, instead of waiting for the
Europa League, we are ready for the group draw of the Champions League.”
