Jose Mourinho has managed two clubs in England so far and has won a good number of trophies. Most of his achievements were with Chelsea over two spells where he spend whatever money he felt like spending. At United, arguably the most affluent of clubs, he again spent frivolously but seems to have a problem with Jurgen Klopp.
In a statement given during his Champions League punditry for the Liverpool game against Barcelona, Mourinho expressed admiration and envy for both Liverpool and Manchester City as well as their managers. Because that is what you do as an out of job manager: envy the managers at successful clubs.
Mourinho was noticeably sacked by Manchester United last December after getting in the Doldrums with the team. His relationship with most of the squad had deteriorated over the course of the season. Pogba had in fact posted a cryptic message probably celebrating the manager’s sacking.
Speaking with BeIn Sport, he said he would love to be at a club that gives it’s managers time and resources to develop a squad to their liking. He loves things at Liverpool and Manchester City that he would gladly swap places.
Besides, the Mourinhocasm is evident in his statements as he goes on to take a jibe at Jurgen Klopp. Cheap one obviously, since it’s Mourinho we are talking about.
“I would love to go to a club and be in conditions to do what Jurgen and Pep did,”
“If you look at the ( Liverpool ) team that started the game, how many of them were there when Jurgen arrived? A couple.
“When Jurgen is in the club and wins absolutely nothing for three-and-a-half years and he still has the trust, still has the confidence, still has the conditions to try to keep going and going.
“In my next job I will not be starting a conversation without knowing exactly what the club wants and what the club has to give in terms of structure and the club objectives.”
