Jose Mourinho Wants To Wipe United Last Three Years From History
Manchester United on Friday anointed Jose Mourinho the third new manager in less than three years in the bid to reinstate the club as a title-winning force in England and Europe.
After three days of talks, Mourinho agreed a three-year contract on a bumper salary reportedly worth more than $20 million (19.5 million euros) a year.
The 53-year-old Portuguese supercoach and self-anointed “Special One”, who has 22 honours to his name, said it was the “mystique” of United that drew him to the challenge of reviving one of the world’s biggest football clubs. Mourinho also said he’d prefer to wipe the last three years under David Moyes and Louis van Gaal from the club’s history.
Mourinho said inter alia, below:
“Manchester United is one of these clubs where you need really to be prepared for it because it is what I used to call a giant club. Giant clubs must be for the best managers and I think I’m ready. To become Manchester United manager is a special honour in the game. It is a club known and admired throughout the world. There is a mystique and a romance about it which no other club can match.”
