AS Roma coach Jose Mourinho has wished new Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag the best of luck in his new adventure.
He will lead the English giants Ten Hag from next season after a disastrous match with Mourinho saying he knew his dismissal from the club would never solve their problems because they needed a serious overhaul.
Mourinho claimed that his second place finish in the 2017/18 season was among his greatest managerial achievements, hinting at the difficulties behind the scenes.
“Of course my contact in English is Chelsea, that’s how I see it, as a Chelsea man. Two terms at Chelsea, six years. But Man United, the fans are special. There are a lot of good people inside the club, it’s not like I’m happy to be right.”
“I’m not happy for being right, I would like to be wrong. But I knew I was right. The first thing you should change when things are not going well is mentality and organization. And it wasn’t coming.
“I knew my leaving wouldn’t solve the situation. I knew that, unfortunately. I wish them the best, frankly, I wish them the best and I hope they make it.”
The Portuguese spent two and a half seasons with the Red Devils from 2016 to 2018, winning the League Cup and the Europa League double during his debut season with titles remaining the club’s last major honour.
