Mourinho senses Man Utd fans already behind him

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho senses the fans are already close to him.

Mourinho says putting the club back on top is more important for the supporters than himself.

“The club is much more important than me, the fans are much more important than me, so it’s not for me. I’m not working for me, I’m working for the club, for the fans. That’s the way I look at things.

“Can it be nice for my career to win trophies in every club? That would be amazing. To be champion in every club would be amazing.

“But that’s an individual, selfish perspective that I don’t want. I work for the club. The club brought me here because they trust me.

“I have the feeling – of course not everyone I guess – that the majority of the supporters they trust me. They believe that I can help the club. I have the feeling that the players want me.

“I’m not saying they didn’t want Mr Van Gaal, I’m not saying that. I’m saying that since I arrived I feel that they are very fine with me and my way of leading and my way of work.

“But I want just to see my things in this way of perspective, and let’s enjoy the season because a big season is waiting for us.”
