Mou: Utd should've gave me more time

English Premier League

Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho felt he should have been given more time to make things right at Manchester United.

Mourinho spent two-and-a-half season with the Red Devils, where he won the UEFA Europa League and League Cup while he also managed to secure a second-place finish in the 2017/2018 season.

After a string of poor results, Mourinho was sacked in December 2018 but the Portuguese tactician feels he was in the middle of the process.

"In a certain period of my career, with a profile of club I was getting in hands, we didn’t need as much time to reach success," Mourinho said, according to Goal.

"We did it at Porto, Inter, Real [Madrid], Chelsea, both times, we did it without that need of that longevity and also my desire to try different things and my crazy desire to go to many countries, and to try to win it, and try to get different experiences in many different countries, was perfect because was about winning, and good bye, and let’s try another thing.

"The first club where I felt I need time and time was not given was at Manchester United, because I felt that I left at the middle of the process, but I learn very early to respect decisions, which I did at United.

"We did what we did, we did what was possible to do, and we move on. I am happy, they are happy, and we have a great relation, which is something I am very proud always to say, when I leave clubs, I keep very good relationship with everybody, and United is one more example of that."
