Mourinho Mind Games

Speaking at his press conference ahead of the opening matchday of the Premier League season, Jose Mourinho taunted his managerial rivals for avoiding title talk, and for essentially lacking the ‘cojones’ of Manchester United.

Mourinho has a long-standing rivalry with Arsene Wenger, and it doesn’t take a detective to work out that he was implicitly taking a dig at the Arsenal boss with these quotes.


Mourinho says that United have no qualms about proclaiming their title desires, but that the other big teams are ‘afraid’ of admitting as much.

The Portuguese has only been at the Old Trafford helm for a couple of months, but he’s already talking and acting like he’s part of the furniture, and he’s clearly relishing the role.
