Manchester United's manager made the claim when asked what it meant to him to be in charge of one of the world's greatest clubs.

Sources have told ESPN FC that United are standing by Mourinho despite the club's worst start to a season since 1992.

He pointed out that the three Premier League titles he had won previously with Chelsea were more than the rest of the division's managers combined.

Zidane is a free agent after leaving Real Madrid and United would surely be interested in the Frenchman should they part company with their current manager.

"Because he never won anything in global (competition), for example".

"We won the Europa League because that was our level".

The report adds that despite United's public backing of Mourinho, his position will come under scrutiny should United lose to Burnley at Turf Moor at the weekend - a result that would likely leave them nine points off the Premier League summit with just four games played.


Mourinho demanded respect from reporters following Monday's 3-0 home defeat to Spurs and Guardiola sympathised with the Portuguese, saying the media can not know the whole picture.

"Not small titles, proper titles, and my second place last season was one of my greatest achievements in football".

Meanwhile, Burnley boss Sean Dyche has had his say on respect for Mourinho, who, as well as the Premier League three times with Chelsea, has also won the top flight in Spain, Italy and Portugal, and the Champions League twice.

With the chance to go up against World Cup victor Paul Pogba once again, as well as Brazilian pair Fred and Andreas Pereira, the 29-year-old added: "We've had some great matches already this season in the Europa League".

"Everyone in the dressing room is really sad, especially after the first half we had and especially a big thank you to the fans for the way they supported us, even when we were down 3-0, was incredible".

United tried to get themselves back in the game but any hope of a late comeback was extinguished when Smalling shocking defending allowed Moura to race through on goal and fire past David De Gea to seal a 3-0 win for Tottenham. We need to look next week to win and win in a good way. What he's done mentally too, I think we're going to see a really good player from this point on.

"Two seasons ago we had a fantastic season winning the Europa League, this season and last season everyone thought Atletico Madrid were incredible".
