Jose Mourinho insists the expectations at Manchester United are the hardest part of his job at the club.
The Portuguese boss took over from Louis van Gaal last summer at Old Trafford and has already won the EFL Cup, is on the right track in the Europa League, FA Cup and is in touching distance of the Premier League top four, with a Champions League qualification as the club’s main goal.
However, he has won trophies at every club he’s managed and should be used to the high expectations after his time in charge at Chelsea and Real Madrid.
Speaking about the situation, he claims the gap between expectations and potential is too wide.
“The hard part is the expectation, because of the club history,” he said.
“I’m also a little bit guilty of it because I’m used to winning trophies in every club.
“The relation between our true potential and the expectations we create, there is a gap.
“That gap is the most difficult thing.”
Following a shaky start to the season, performances have massively improved under Mourinho and there’s no doubt he’s the right manager to take us forward.
There are solid foundations in place at Old Trafford and it’s only a matter of time before he’s able to make everything click.
