Mou: I knew I was right about Man Utd

English Premier League

AS Roma boss Jose Mourinho believes he has been proved right after Manchester United suffered their worst points tally in Premier League history this season.

The Red Devils are in the midst of their worst trophy drought in 40 years, with their last silverware coming under the Portuguese manager in the 2016/17 season.

When Mourinho was at the helm, he often accused the dressing room of mentality and commitment issues, before he was shown the exit door in December 2018.

The club's now-former interim boss Ralf Rangnick has since echoed similar concerns about the club following their struggles in the 2021/22 campaign.

In a recent interview, Mourinho was asked, after he told beIN SPORTS in 2019 that finishing second with United was one of the best achievements of his career because of issues "behind the scenes", if he feels time has proved him correct.

"Unfortunately, yes," the 59-year-old told BT Sport.

"Of course, my English connection is Chelsea – that's the way I'm seeing it, as a Chelsea man, two periods at Chelsea, six years.

"But at Man United the fans are special and there are lots of good people inside the club, so it's not like I'm happy to be right.

"I'm not happy to be right. I would like to be wrong. But I knew that I was right. 

"The first thing you have to change, for me, when things are not going right is mentality and organisation, and it was not coming. 

"And I knew that for me to leave was not going to resolve the situation. I knew that, unfortunately.

"I wish them the best, honestly, and hopefully they make it."

Mourinho has a chance to get his hands on another trophy when his Roma side take on Feyenoord in the UEFA Europa Conference League final on Wednesday night.
