At being showed a lack of respect and his style of football, all scintillating stuff.

When it comes to talking to the media, Jose Mourinho has never been one to hide his feelings.

Before the Premier League game against Tottenham, Mourinho was particularly reticent when it came to the Harry Kane being injured and not playing for Tottenham, listing a plethora of his own stars who were absent through injury.

Ahead of our clash with Chelsea this afternoon, and as reported by the Daily Star, Mourinho has claimed that he doesn`t get the respect he deserves as a serial winner.

After winning four trophies in his first season with Manchester United, making it a career total of twenty-five, Jose has remarked to the media,

“I think that probably 25 trophies is the line that people made about a successful manager. For some managers they still need to win one more trophy to reach that 25 level.

“Some others need 25 trophies to reach that level. Some others need four. Some others, they need 12. Some others, they need 15. Some others need 24.

“I have 25 but I still need one more. So maybe when I win one more trophy than 25 I have a little bit of credit but that`s not a problem.

“Am I frustrated? No. It`s just a difficult week. Big matches, injuries, tired – just normal.”

Continuing, Jose also had a pop at those pundits who, last week, had the gall to criticise the manner in which Manchester United achieved their victory over Tottenham, labelling it as defensive football, remarking,

“What is for you magic? What is for you phenomenal? The way Tottenham played against Real Madrid?

“I think recently I saw some team play exactly that way and it was negative. I saw a team play exactly that way – defending, pressing, controlling all the penetration.

“Playing with five at the back, getting the full-backs forward, getting the ball, going forward in quick transitions, attacking the last defensive line.

“I think recently I watched a match like that but it was not on TV. It was close, it was on the touchline.”

Scintillating stuff Jose and all perfectly true!
