Jose Mourinho quick to point out he was the last United manager to win a trophy

Jose Mourinho has a reputation for not holding back and he always appears keen to give his side of the story.

His time at Manchester United brought some success to the club, but he left a mess behind him, like he has done at other clubs in the past.

The Portuguese was axed by United in December 2018 after two-and-a-half years in the dugout. While there is no denying that Mourinho was a serial winner, it’s clear that many of the modern coaches have surpassed him in a tactical sense at least.

Mourinho won two trophies during his time at United, although he will tell you he won three.

We’re only counting the League Cup and the Europa League – but Mourinho thinks we should include the Community Shield, which is hardly something worth celebrating.

I say that as a fan who has not seen his club win a trophy in five years.

However, in a recent interview with Sky Sports, Mourinho was quick to remind journalists that he was the last manager to deliver success at United, back in 2017.

“We won together three titles at Man United, unfortunately the last three titles of Man United.

“I say unfortunately because I like the club very, very much and I wish the club the best.

“We won three titles together so everything went well, in the second season was a little bit different.”

Hopefully Erik ten Hag can bring some success back to Old Trafford.
