Jose Mourinho demands more 'respect' after humbling defeat

Jose Mourinho demands more 'respect' after humbling defeat

Pressure is mounting on Mourinho following United's 3-0 home defeat to Spurs in the Premier League on Monday (August 27) - their second loss in three matches.

"Because we were not unsafe enough, because Sevilla deserved to win the match".

"Like I said, I am sorry for the fans, not just the ones here but the ones at home that have been watching and supporting us". We were booed and deservedly.

But the United midfielder said they could not afford to start panicking despite claiming the players were at a loss to explain the Spurs defeat.

"Burnley was one of the games where I was setting up the cones before the game and I thought: 'I wouldn't mind playing today'".

"Three for me and two for them", he said, referencing Pep Guardiola and Manuel Pellegrini's English top-flight titles.

"But, look, we have a really good spirit, a really good group of lads and a group that want to work, want to achieve big things here".

"Respect. Respect. Respect, man. Respect, respect", his voice could be heard echoing from the corridor.

Ryan Giggs has voiced his support for Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho amid rumours he could soon lose his job.

"Mourinho knows what he's doing and knows how to win titles", Rooney told CNN.

Mourinho was already one of the favourites to be the first Premier League to be sacked this season after a summer that saw him reportedly fall out with his clubs board over transfer targets and several of his star players, as well as his constant media outbursts.

They went on to lift the title that season but Paddy Power are convinced Mourinho can not replicate Sir Alex Ferguson's success.
