Jose Mourinho: I’m still a nobody at Manchester United

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has said he feels like a “nobody” at the club.

Mourinho was appointed as Louis van Gaal’s successor last summer and has won the Europa League, EFL Cup and Community Shield in his first season at Old Trafford.

The former Chelsea boss, however, admits he is still in shadows of iconic figures such as Sir Alex Ferguson and Sir Matt Busby

He told Rio Ferdinand on the BT Sport documentary ‘Old Trafford Uncovered’: “In this club it makes me feel that I did nothing.

“Especially because you have two legends — many of them, but two [Busby and Ferguson] are legends in terms of titles and trophies. I feel that I am nobody. I always have to prove.

“I just feel that what I did in this club is not enough to deserve to be here [pointing to wall enshrined with pictures of Ferguson and Busby]. That’s why I am there [pointing to a picture of himself on a wall on its own].

“Sometimes when I stop and look back I did a lot of things, I have things that nobody else has. No manager won in Spain, Italy and England. In these three countries I won all the competitions, not just the league.

“For example, when we won against Anderlecht I was told that I equal the record of Sir Alex and [Giovanni] Trapattoni of 10 European semi-finals. They have finished. I still have a chance to get some more semi-finals. So there are things that I’m really proud of.”
