Jose Mourinho: 'Manchester United fans must forget past three years'
Mourinho will be tasked with bringing sustained success back to United following a turbulent period since Sir Alex Ferguson stepped down from his position as manager in 2013, with just one FA Cup – won by Van Gaal in his final game at the helm – to show for the past three years.
Speaking to United’s in-house TV station MUTV, the former Chelsea boss said: “I think we can look at our club in two perspectives – one is the past three years and another is the history. I prefer to forget the last three years. I prefer to focus on the giant club I have in my hands now.
“What the fans are expecting me to say is that I want to win. The players need to hear that, but I think we can really, it’s not just to say it. I want to give what I have and what I don’t have. To give everything to go in the direction we want.”
Mourinho will not hold his first official press conference as Man United manager until July, ahead of the pre-season trip to the Far East.
