Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho claims he sympathises with David Moyes following a difficult week at Sunderland.
The former Man United coach is facing FA action because of his threat to slap a female BBC reporter and Mourinho has shared his support for every manager fighting relegation.
Sunderland are at the bottom of the Premier League ahead of Sunday’s clash at the Stadium of Light with Man United, with Moyes already stating he doesn’t expect his team to pick up any points from the fixture.
Speaking ahead of the clash, Moutinho claims it’s hard for any of the clubs that could potentially go down.
“I have sympathy with every manager that is fighting hard to reach their objectives and he’s in trouble to do it,” said Mourinho.
“In the end there is one team who will be champions and there are three teams who will be relegated.
“But everyone is a good professional, everyone gives everything, everyone fights all season.
“Some of us, we are sacked in the middle of the season, it’s difficult for everyone, so, of course, I have sympathy. That’s normal.”
Mourinho has been vocal in his support for Claudio Ranieri, wearing his initials on a jacket to his press conference earlier in the season following his sacking from Leicester City and he even allegedly offered Aitor Karanka a backroom job after his Middlesbrough axe.
It’s clear that he understands how they all feel after being sacked by Chelsea and it’s great to see his sympathy for his fellow colleagues.
