People with brain know we are in a moment of transition – Jose Mourinho

Manchester United’s manager, Jose Mourinho has reacted to criticism concerning his team’s tactics in the wake of the UCL exit. He responded with a 12-minute tirade in his news conference before the 2-0 FA Cup win over Brighton .

Much of his words focused on the expectations of United fans as he addressed the subject of supporters. He said he is convinced that anyone with a “brain” should be able to see the team is in a state of flux.

“I understand the frustration, I understand the sadness of being knocked out in the Champions League, but I don’t understand anything more than that,” Mourinho told CNN .

“In the history of football all around the world, not just in England, you had the biggest clubs with the moments of transition, you have the biggest clubs with moments of continuous and permanent victories and these are phases in the club.

“And I think really at this moment looking to us in the Premier League we have one team [Manchester City], one club clearly better prepared than us in the past few years to be first and we have 18 clubs behind us. One in front of us, 18 behind us.

“Of course in the future we want to have 19 clubs behind us but this is the reality, and the reality is for people with a brain, with sense, with common sense, with knowledge of what sport is, we are in a moment of transition.

“Being in a moment of transition and still [managing] to do what he did last season and win trophies and to do what we are trying to do this season, which is still trying to win a trophy, and try to be second, because in this moment it’s the only top position that is possible for us to get. I think we are in a good position”, Jose Mourinho said.
