Jose Mourinho’s official unveiling as Manchester United manager is currently ongoing at Old Trafford.
At the commencement of the unveiling, one of the first things Mourinho said was that come July 2017, he would have returned United to the champions league.
He said: “Manchester United is a Champions League club. We have to make sure in July 2017 that this club is where it belongs.”
He continued on his desire to see Manchester United back amongst Europe’s most elite teams as he said: “let’s work and let’s try to be back to the Champions League; be back to the top four.”
Mourinho also talked about what his playing style would be at Old Trafford. He said: “I want everything. I want to win matches, I want to play well, I don’t want to concede goals.”
The Portuguese manager, in his usual self, threw tantrums as he said he was in competition with legendary Sir Alex Ferguson who managed Manchester United for close to three decades.
“I don’t hide, I chase Sir Alex [Ferguson]’s record.”
