Jose first interview
The revered coach has also insisted that he's ready for the Manchester United job and has insisted that he wants to 'win'.
Speaking to MUTV, Mourinho stated: "I feel great. I think it comes in the right moment of my career because Man United is one of these clubs where you need really to be prepared for it because it is what I call a giant club. And giant clubs must be for the best managers and I think I am ready for it, so I could say I am happy, I am proud, I am honoured.
"I think we can look at our club now in two perspectives. One perspective is the last three years and another perspective is the club history. I think I prefer to forget the past three years, I prefer to focus on the giant club I have in my hands now and I think what the fans are expecting me to say is that I want to win. I think the players need to listen - I want to win."
