EPL: Man Utd have given Ten Hag what I didn’t get – Mourinho

José Mourinho has claimed Manchester United did not give him the level of support they gave to Erik ten Hag.

In an interview with the UK Telegraph, Mourinho insisted he could have been better had he been afforded the trust and support the Dutchman has enjoyed.

Mourinho was at United from 2016 to 2018 and won a Europa League and Carabao Cup.

He was, however, sacked with his team’s 11 points adrift of the Champions League places in December 2018.

“My relationship with [former chief executive] Ed Woodward was good. Good as in the personal point of view,” Mourinho said.

“Even now we send an SMS. But from a professional point of view it was not the best. I am who I am. I am a football man. Ed comes from a different background and what Ten Hag has in his time at Manchester United I didn’t have.

“I didn’t have that level of support. I didn’t have that level of trust. So I left sad, because I felt I was in the beginning of the process. In some moments, I felt if they trusted me and believed in my experience things could be different.”
