Manchester United are not at their best at the moment, there's no denying that. However, there is also no denying their greatness and the fact that they are the most important team in English football historically and the Portuguese manager, Jose Mourinho, knows it.

Mou took the reins of the club from 2016 to 2018 and under his stewardship, the Red Devils won the UEFA Europa League title and finished second in the Premier League, which was the best result since Sir Alex Ferguson retired. However, he also managed Chelsea for some time, although it has now become clear which of the two clubs he loves more.

On the Rio Ferdinand podcast, Jose Mourinho spoke for the first time after being sacked from Roma, his last club as manager. Speaking about Manchester United, he revealed that he really enjoyed his time at Old Trafford and that the affection he feels for the club still remains and is such that, at the time, he turned down great opportunities to remain in the Red Devils' dugout.

"I loved my time there, I don't think the media helped me. I turned down great job opportunities. The first one was even very difficult to turn down because it was Portugal. I could have been the coach of the national team. I could also be your coach (points to Ferdinand). I had the offer on the table," said Mourinho, who made it clear which team is his favourite when it comes to the Premier League.

Jose Mourinho is undoubtedly one of the best managers to come through the Manchester United coaching ranks since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson. In that sense, the Portuguese also assured that he always felt happy and with a huge responsibility for being the one in Sir Alex's place. "The club, the history, everything, to be a manager at the same club as Sir Alex Ferguson, you have to feel it, you have to feel the pride and the responsibility and I felt it".
