Coach Jose Mourinho highly appreciates Sir Jim Ratcliffe's deal to buy shares in MU and believes that the Old Trafford team will perform well in the coming time.
Jose Mourinho believes in MU
Not long ago, Sir Jim Ratcliffe completed the acquisition of 25% shares in Man Utd. The British billionaire will be in charge of managing the football side of the team in the near future and MU fans have high expectations for the home team's excellent performance under the new owner.
Coach Jose Mourinho also appeared quite optimistic about MU's future. Speaking through Rio Ferdinand's VIBE with FIVE podcast, Mourinho said: "I know Jim Ratcliffe very well, we have had a close relationship for quite a long time and I have a good feeling about the future of MU.
He is knowledgeable about sports, he loves football and this is very important. Combined with my experience running other sports teams, like cycling, I have a feeling that everything at MU will go in the right direction in the near future.
Since I left the club five years ago, many things have changed. I believe that Richard Arnold has created something different because I know he is capable. Even though he comes from the club's financial background, I still appreciate Richard Arnold's sports knowledge."
Also in the sharing session, Jose said he was always proud to have time to lead MU. But he also frankly commented that the superstructure of this team makes it difficult for the team to have the expected success.
Mourinho commented: " I am very proud to have had the time to lead MU. Even more proud when I heard the cheers from all the stands on the day I returned to Old Trafford as a commentator with Sky Sports. Thank you. That emotion from the fans really touched me.
I really appreciate my time working at MU. Rio, you probably know this well, I have the opportunity to coach the team that Sir Alex once led. Anyone who has that opportunity must feel proud and responsible. Me too."
