Jose Mourinho Ends 'Difficult Week' With Bizarrely Brief Press Conference

Jose Mourinho Ends 'Difficult Week' With Bizarrely Brief Press Conference

Although the Premier League season is only entering its third round of matches this weekend, Jose Mourinho is already displaying strains of dissatisfaction with life at Manchester United.

After an opening day win against Leicester City was followed by a disappointing defeat to Chris Hughton's Brighton & Hove Albion, the Portuguese appeared in foul mood at this afternoon's pre-match press conference ahead of United's game against Tottenham Hotspur on Monday night.


Reportedly turning up half an hour earlier than the scheduled 2.00pm starting time, Jose Mourinho proceeded to answer a handful of questions, scarcely offering much more than a cursory remark.

With many questions surrounding Mourinho's relationship with the club's CEO Ed Woodward, the United manager insisted that things were "fine." Asked whether any issues existed between the pair, Mourinho responded; "No."


Another point of contention was his side's defeat to Brighton last weekend. After Paul Pogba publicly criticised the team's attitude, Mourinho let it be known that he would not be offering any opinion on these comments: "If you want any explanation about Paul’s words you must get him and ask him."

Regarding his own thoughts on that surprise defeat, Mourinho insisted that he was looking squarely ahead of him now.

I think difficult, difficult is after the match you lose, is always difficult, especially for people that really care about the job, about being football pro, but after that you think about the next match. You do the same when you win, when you win you have to move on and focus what next and imagine when you lose you have to do even more.

Speaking for only a handful of minutes, Mourinho's attempts to forego any meaningful interaction with the media after a difficult week for the club will hardly inspire much confidence.
