Jose Mourinho 'told Manchester United not to sign Cristiano Ronaldo'

'Do You Read Hegel?' - Mourinho's Press Conference Takes Bizarre Turn

'Do You Read Hegel?' - Mourinho's Press Conference Takes Bizarre Turn

Edwin van der Sar has warned Manchester United that they are facing an uphill struggle this season under Jose Mourinho.

Cristiano Ronaldo will be making a return to Old Trafford with the £88m recruit's new side as a result of Juventus being drawn in the same Champions League group as United, and Mourinho believes the Italian club's summer spending is a sign of their naked ambition.

Mourinho has come under pressure after United suffered back-to-back defeats to Brighton and Tottenham Hotspur, which leaves the side in 13th position in the English top flight.

On Friday Mourinho, a title victor in Italy, Spain and England, proclaimed that he would be "one of the greatest managers in the world" even if he doesn't win the Premier League title while at United.

Mourinho is on the brink at Manchester United with his future hanging by a thread and with Zidane on the horizon, the sack is inevitable.

He also said second place last season was "one of his greatest achievements".

Poindexter was admitted to a hospital briefly with a sprained ankle and Williams suffered minor scratches to his legs, they said. The decision comes after the deaths of Elijah Clayton , 22, of Woodland Hills, Calif., and Taylor Robertson , 28, of Giles, W.

Mourinho has vehemently defended his managerial record in the wake of the 3-0 loss to Spurs at Old Trafford on Monday evening.

They sang out loud "you are getting sacked in the morning" towards Mourinho, who has found himself in a hard position at the start of the season following back-to-back Premier League defeats for Manchester United.

"Did you read any philosopher or in your formation you never spent time reading, for example, Hegel?", Mourinho asked one reporter.

"It's been a big week for him that ends with a very important match against Burnley, this is the most important thing", Mourinho told a news conference on Friday. They had a big dream to go to a title.

Mourinho was ultimately frustrated in his pursuit of a number of defenders, however, and a disappointing start to the 2018-19 campaign has seen United lose two of their three Premier League fixtures. We dropped two points or we won one point at Wolves.

Before his team's trip to Burnley on Sunday (16:00 BST kick-off), the Portuguese added: "I had great success last season and that's probably what you don't want to admit".
