Jose Mourinho defended his record in the Premier League during his official unveiling as the Roma head coach on Thursday. The Portuguese returned to the Seria A, 11 years on from his treble of the league, Cup, and Champions League with Inter Milan. Mourinho enjoyed unprecedented success at Real Madrid winning a number of trophies. He had a somewhat disappointing spell at Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur after his spell in Spain. He was sacked by all the three English clubs but maintains that his spells at all three clubs were a success overall.
“At my last three clubs I won the Premier League with Chelsea, I won three cups with Manchester United, I made it into the League Cup final with Tottenham,” he said at a press conference in the Italian capital.” Jose Mourinho said defending his poor track record in the Premier League. “We finished 12th the year before and then we came sixth and qualified for the Europa League. What has been considered a disaster for me is something that other coaches have never achieved in their lifetimes.”
“There is a fantastic bond between Roma and the city and that brings a lot of responsibility with it and I feel that but we are not here on holiday, we are here to work,” Mourinho added. “The next challenge is always the most important, this is the next challenge so it is the most important. We are not going to change things when we are not yet aware of everything we have within the group. It is very important to get to know them.”
