The Tottenham manager, Jose Mourinho has made a revelation on why he failed at Manchester United.
According to him, he needed more time to achieve success at Manchester United but was not given the opportunity.
Mourinho is of the expectation that he would stay much longer at Tottenham as he gets the north London club flying high to start the 2020-21 season.
At the moment Tottenham are in first place in the Premier League on goal difference over Liverpool, with the two sides set to face each other in a top-of-the-table clash on Wednesday.
Mourinho, who is also a former Chelsea boss joined Tottenham 11 months after he was sacked at Manchester United.
He stayed at Man United for two and a half years before he left and this was after he had experienced quick success with several clubs earlier in his career.
He made it clear that United was a long-term project and not like those clubs he joined, won trophies and say ‘goodbye’.
“In a certain period of my career, with a profile of the club I was getting in hands, we didn’t need as much time to reach success,” Mourinho said as quoted by Goal.
“The first club where I felt I needed time and time was not given was at Manchester United because I felt that I left at the middle of the process, but I learned very early to respect decisions, which I did at United.
“Now, in Tottenham, I know the profile of the job I have in hand, and hopefully until now I am enjoying very, very much to be in the club, I believe that the club is happy to work with me, so I see myself staying for a long time.”
Mourinho who has also coached Inter Milan, Porto, Real Madrid, suggested that he would leave the club earlier if he is able to accelerate the process of achieving success.
