I am the only manager in the world that won Italy, Spain and England and by winning eight titles - not small titles, not small countries - eight proper titles.
"I had great success last season".
"I said before the start of the season that matching what we did last season was going to be hard", Mourinho said.
I tell you what I think, how he feels.
Manchester United fans haven't had too much to cheer for in recent times.
Mourinho has described himself as "one of the greatest managers in the world" and used a phrase from a German philosopher to remind critics of his past successes, it was reported on Friday, Aug. 31, 2018.
However, he said that the position of any manager is dependent on the results and they will be judged only on the results they produce. "To go to the national team after three Premier League matches, it is extraordinary for him".
Argentina goalkeeper Sergio Romero was also in the team against Stoke after recovering from the knee problem which ruled him out of the World Cup.
"What's important is to know the quality and the quality I believe when you get that level of the Premier League - all the managers are here because they are top, top managers". There are teams above us but there a lot of points to play for and after the global break the real season starts.
"Two seasons ago we had a fantastic season because we won the Europa League". I repeat, I have won eight titles.
"A very hard group with one of the biggest candidates to reach the final [in Juventus] and a team who made an incredible investment on top of a fantastic team they had, so a big, big candidate.
Now I'm interested", was his response when asked about Mourinho, before it was explained to him what the United boss said.
Burnley will have a quick turnaround after dropping out of the Europa League with a 4-2 aggregate defeat to Olympiakos on Thursday night, but Sean Dyche preferred to focus on the positives from the Clarets' first European campaign in 51 years, ahead of a tough challenge from United on Sunday.
