The newly signed Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has expressed readiness to help the Red Devils overcome their recent setbacks.
The Portuguese, who was speaking during an interview told the club’s website the he feels great and thinks he is in the right moment of his career.
“I could say I am happy, I am proud, I am honoured, I am everything but the reality is what I love is to work and I cannot wait for 7th of July to go on the pitch,” he said.
He said his ambition for United was to ignore the club’s performance in the last three years and focus on the giant club he has in his hands.
“I want to focus on the history of this giant club and give what I have and what I don’t have.
“So I will give absolutely everything to try to go in the direction we all want,” he promised.
Mourinho was appointed Manchester United manager on Thursday after signing his contract at a central London hotel.
He was Chelsea’s coach between 2004 – 2007 before he left for Inter Milan and Real Madrid and subsequently returned to coach the Blues between 2013 – 2015.
The 53-year-old is regarded by a number of players and other football stakeholders as one of the most successful managers in the world.
He was named the best Portuguese Coach of the Century by the Portuguese Football Federation in 2015.
