Board disagree over Zinedine Zidane replacing Jose Mourinho

"I am the manager of one of the greatest clubs in the world but I'm also one of the greatest managers in the world", said Mourinho. "And I answer the question". I repeat that two seasons ago we had a fantastic season by winning the Europa League, this season and last season everybody thought Atletico Madrid were awesome because they won the Europa League after being knocked out of the Champions League.

Manchester United are already entering the realms of "must-win games" in 2018/19.

And as the United boss listed his achievements as a manager, including a respectable Premier League finish in hard circumstances last season, and enquired if they would ask the same of managers whose teams finished lower, he took the bait and gave them what they wanted.

Manchester United have endured a poor start to the 2018-19 season but manager Jose Mourinho has receives surprising backing from Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.

After surprising everyone in the early weeks of last season, Burnley have made an even slower start than United this time, with one point from three games. They had a big dream to go to a title.

Zidane on the other hand, has won three-straight UEFA Champions League titles as Real manager and captured the 2016-17 La Liga championship.

The press conference comes after he walked out of his meeting with the media after the Spurs match having gone on a rant about how he deserved more respect. I had great success last season and that's probably what you don't want to admit. "I'm the only manager to win in Italy, Spain and England".

He played three very good matches and it is not easy to play three very good matches when your team loses two of them...

"To be really good offensively you have to be solid at the back, all the best teams are, because that is what allows you the confidence to take risks".

Jose Mourinho has declared himself "one of the greatest managers in the world" as he staged another grandiose defence of his record by referencing philosophers and his trophy haul in the face of mounting pressure at Old Trafford.
