Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is unable to speak about the club’s dramatic, headline grabbing situation, admitting that he cannot say what he really thinks about the situation at Manchester United because it only gives detractors in the media something else to criticise him about.
“I think there are things that are difficult for me to say and if I say [them] it’s not good for me and even yourself would be getting another reason to criticise me,” Mourinho said during a news conference, according to ESPN FC.
“I think you have had enough, so I prefer just to say when last season we finish second, runners-up in the FA Cup, we won our group in the Champions League, I said it was a fantastic season and I knew why I was saying that.”
Prior to their match against Valencia, former United player Paul Scholes said that Mourinho was “embarrassing”.
“I don’t need to know what he [Scholes] said,” Mourinho added. “He said what he wants to say, I’m not interested, honestly, I’m not interested. Freedom of speech, free country, you can say what you want.”
“Freedom of speech, especially Manchester United fans that I respect 200 percent,” Mourinho continued.
“I’m pleased with the effort, the commitment, the improvement [after West Ham], but I’m not pleased of course with the result which is not a good result but is not a bad result.”
