Mourinho: Clearly I am still building this Man Utd team

They claim that the criticism they have faced is an "organised and clear" attempt to damage their reputation.

"They're the games that I love to be involved in".

"It's hard for me to answer because I focus on my job". I like to read good articles and a passionate football fan.

"If you are stable and you know what you have to do, the success and the good games are always coming up".

'I admire because of his fantastic qualities. The Frenchman has also hinted that he can not say how he truly feels about the situation due to media restrictions placed on him. "I believe in this team".

United take on City at the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon and they go into the clash with plenty of confidence following their brilliant 2-1 victory away at Juventus in midweek.


City's defense is also the best in the league, having conceded only 4 goals in 11 matches, with Aymeric Laporte, in particular, being very impressive.

City still won the league anyway, finishing 19 points clear of United in second, but Mourinho sees reason for optimism as his side look to improve on their current position of seventh.

"Since the days of Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic, United have struggled to get a settled two and I'm sure as soon as Mourinho has the opportunity he will change the two he has now for different ones", said Dunne, speaking exclusively to 888sport.

Mourinho and Pep Guardiola are both in their third seasons in Manchester, but the United boss feels he has been forced to work harder to develop the players he inherited.

In the Spaniard's first season, the club recorded a 0-0 draw with United, while the Red Devils came back two goals down to record a memorable 3-2 win in last season's encounter at the Etihad.

"We are not a team that gives up". We either win or we fail, always.
