Jose Mourinho Tells Critics He Needs Same Time As Sir Alex Ferguson To Bring Success To Manchester United

Jose Mourinho insists he needs the same amount of time given to Sir Alex Ferguson at the start of his Manchester United career to bring success to the club.

Poor start

Mourinho has come under fire following United’s lacklustre start to the season.

And with his side sitting nine points adrift of leaders Chelsea in sixth spot, they appear to be out of the running for this season’s Premier League crown.

Fergie Time

But the former Real Madrid coach remains defiant – and was quick to remind critics of the patience shown to Alex Ferguson in his first few seasons at the club.

The United legend – appointed in 1986 – didn’t win a trophy until his fourth season when they claimed his first FA Cup triumph.

As per the Mirror, Mourinho said: “The best manager in Premier League history (Sir Alex Ferguson) needed a few years to build a successful period; so if the best needed time, then others do too.

Jose defiant

“The three-year contract I was given is a fair period of time.

“My three years isn’t just about transfer windows, it is about building relationships with the players.

“I am not waiting for my third season for good results, I am doing my best to get results in my first season.”

Mourinho was speaking ahead of United’s Europa League clash with Feyenoord on Thursday night.

A win would see them leapfrop their Dutch opponents and potentially go top of Group A should Fenerbahce slip up to Zorya Luhansk.
