Jose Mohrinho Hits Out To Financially Big Clubs With Little History

Manchester United Boss Jose Mourinho ahead of the Super Cup clash with Real Madrid spent time reminding the media how football has changed and how Small teams with big finances have shifted the balance.

The Portuguese, who is faced with bringing United back from the post Ferguson fall maintains that Manchester United would have had it easy but for small teams with Billionaire owners like Chelsea and Manchester City.

Jose Mourinho maintained that he can bring Manchester United to its former glory which will only be a little more difficult than in the past.

“The club will always be a giant but our job is to try to bring the football team back to that stature,” he told UEFA’s official website ahead of a Super Cup clash with Real Madrid.

“That's something really difficult these days: before, the giants were the powerful ones economically, and now there are small clubs in terms of prestige and history who are giants economically. That changes absolutely everything.

“But my feeling is that I want the team to be on a par with the club's history, which is something I've been lucky enough to feel at every club: there was the same kind of feeling at Inter and Real Madrid.

“This is where we want to be. And obviously we'll improve the team and try to be at that level.”

Mourinho was able to deliver three trophies for United in his debut campaign, while securing a return to Champions League competition.

He is not setting any lofty targets as the Red Devils prepare to rejoin the elite, with the Portuguese preferring to take things one step at a time.

Jose Mourinho was able to bring in three trophies last season, The Europa League, Capital One Cup and Community Shield but will not be setting great targets as he will be working gradually to the Club's targeted Heights.

“It's absolutely true that Manchester United are one of the top three football clubs in the world, no doubt about it, but the football club is one thing and the team's credentials going into a competition are another thing entirely.

“So we have a giant on our chest, one which is really heavy, but we don't compare our potential to the biggest clubs in Europe right now. So we'll take it step by step and be humble.

“The first step is to try to finish in the top three. If we manage that, we'll try to finish in the top two. Then, when you are in the Champions League last-16 draw, anything can happen.”
