Mourinho makes unbelievable claim about Man United: “I choose teams in big trouble”

Date Posted,June 10, 2017

Jose Mourinho isn’t one to mince his words.

The Manchester United manager has openly criticised his players on more than one occasion this season in his pursuit for Premier League perfection.

He’s also hit out at match officials and even his side’s fixture schedule, telling BT Sports back in March: “We have lots of enemies.”

But the season has closed, everyone is in holiday mode, and the Portuguese is bound to be feeling a little more cheerful about everything, right?

Well no, apparently, as according to his comments in Portuguese newspaper Expresso it seems Mourinho is frustrated with himself for making difficult choices.

While other managers seemingly take the ‘easy route’ in his eyes, Mourinho opts for a challenge by picking teams in need of much help.

“I’m terrible at picking teams,” claimed Mourinho.

“I always choose teams, as they say in England, in big trouble.

“Inter was in big trouble, Real Madrid was in big trouble, Manchester United in big trouble, that is, always in big trouble.”

Mourinho’s Man United side lifted both the EFL Cup and Europa League trophy in his debut season at the club.

But the Portuguese isn’t resting on his laurels. He’s already agreed on a £30.7million deal for Benfica’s Victor Lindelof and is closing in on Alvaro Morata.
