Newly appointed Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has a message for the faithful Mancunians, and it is to forget the past three years.
The past three years has seen Manchester United become a shadow of its former self, under David Moyes, with LVG not doing a better job.
And following his appointment as manager, the former Real Madrid manager will be looking to restore United to a semblance of its former self, a challenge he is looking forward to.
And the former Chelsea, Real Madrid and Inter boss hopes to channel the spirit of United under Alex Ferguson to bring back the glory days.
“We can look at our club now in two perspectives,” he told MUTV. “One perspective is the last three years and another perspective is the club history.
“I think I prefer to forget the past three years, I prefer to focus on the giant club I have in my hands now and I think what the fans are expecting me to say is that I want to win. I think the players need to listen – I want to win.”
Mourinho is confident the appointment comes at the perfect time in his own career, having spent five months out of the game after his sacking at Stamford Bridge.
He added: “I feel great. I think it comes in the right moment of my career because Man United is one of these clubs where you need really to be prepared for it because it is what I call a giant club.
“And giant clubs must be for the best managers and I think I am ready for it, so I could say I am happy, I am proud, I am honoured.”
