Jose Mourinho reveals intentions to match Ferguson’s record at Old Trafford

As Jose Mourinho faces the press for the first time as Manchester United's manager,he has revealed his intentions to match the club's most successful manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
“I can’t hide that I want to chase Sir Alex’s record,” the Portuguese told the assembled press. “This is not a dream job, it is a reality. But it is a job that everyone wants and not everyone has a chance to have. But I have it.

“I know the history of this club and I know what the fans expect of me. It doesn’t make me nervous. It comes in the right moment of my career. I am where I want to be, I want to be in this club I want to be in this country.

“I am unhappy that we are not in the Champions League. Manchester United is a Champions League club, and in July 2017 instead of waiting for the play-off draw the club will be where it has to be and that is the Champions League.”

Man United finished fifth in the Premier League last term, missing out on a spot in next season’s Champions League, but have already signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic this summer, while the transfer of Henrikh Mkhitaryan is expected to be confirmed anytime soon.
