The special one, Jose Mourinho, recently talked about the circumstances that he faced during his time at Old Trafford. And, the current Tottenham Hotspur manager said, he has achieved all the trophies that he possibly could with the Red Devils.

During his time at the club, he helped the Red Devils to win the Europa League and Carabao Cup in the 2016-17 football season. In that same season, he helped the side to win the Community Shield in 2016. He then also helped the club to finish as the runners-up in the 2017-18 FA Cup.
Jose Mourinho believes he has achieved everything that he could at Manchester United
While talking about his achievement with the Manchester United squad at that time, the former manager recently said, “The fans, they know that I gave everything that I could.” He then added, “I won what was possible to win, I didn’t win what was not possible to win. I gave everything, I gave my life to the club and my professionalism like I always do.”
The Portuguese manager then expressed his hunger for victory at Old Trafford. He said, “Internally, lots of friends for life, lots of amazing people that I met in the club. I only have good feelings, feelings that I will have to forget in 90 minutes because for 90 minutes, they want to win, I want to win, that’s football.”

He also talked about the ongoing rumor of him searching revenge from his former side. Mourinho said, “Revenge? I won so many times at Old Trafford as Man Utd coach and as an opponent coach. Revenge for what? Nobody treated me badly there, everyone was so nice to me.” He added, “The transfer window [goes] in two directions and it’s possible that we could let a couple of players to leave, it’s possible we could let a couple of young players to go and experience playing.”
The Tottenham Hotspur manager also talked about keeping all the players in the playing squad. He said, “For sure, we are not going to keep every player in the squad over normal numbers.” The former Red Devils manager then added, “I like to work normally with a squad of 22 players plus the keepers and we are not going to be far from that number.”
