- Mourinho reveals Manchester United is not all about him
- The Red Devils have been reportedly having difficult times
- United will take on Tottenham in a crucial match on Monday
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has declared himself the ‘Unselfish One’ amid the current turmoil surrounding the club.
Far from things being about him all the time, the Portuguese manager claims he has always been a club man.
And ahead of Monday's crucial Premier League match against London side, Tottenham, he refused to claim the fans’ support in their first two games was for him.
Mourinho, who took his staff out for a meal in Manchester city centre on Sunday, said: “The supporters were fantastic in both matches.
“Not for me, for the team which is the only thing that matters.
“In my career I was never selfish and thinking about myself, I was always a club man. That’s what I am. I’m really happy when they support the team.”
Now the 55-year-old wants his players to reward the fans with a win on Monday night — particularly for sticking by them in defeat eight days ago at Brighton.
He said: “Against Leicester, you can say it was a normal situation because the team was playing well and was winning.
“To be supportive of the team at Brighton, where we didn’t play well and lost, it gives you a fantastic feeling.
“I hope the players also feel it and are ready to give everything they have.”
Meanwhile, the former Chelsea boss again refused to say if he is happy with his squad.
When asked the question at a tense press conference, Mourinho simply replied: “You know my answer.”
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho responded to Paul Pogba's 'attitude' comments in the aftermath of the Red Devils' defeat at Brighton .
United gave a limp display at the Amex Stadium last Sunday, falling to a 3-2 defeat and the as the Portuguese offered little in the way of an explanation.
