Jose Mourinho has “sympathy” for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after Manchester United’s humiliating 6-1 defeat to Tottenham and hailed Edinson Cavani as one of the “top strikers in the world”.
Mourinho himself endured tough times at Old Trafford, claiming finishing second was one of his “biggest achievements”. An assertion Gary Neville now agrees with.
The Portuguese boss knows the pressure of the United job and expressed sympathy for his opposite number, backing the United players to react positively.
Premier League (nonsense) winners and losers
“I have sympathy for Ole because of the result. I don’t remember that I lost by [conceding] six but I lost by five and I lost by four, I know how it hurt.
“I know it’s very, very important the winning manager shows sympathy. Of course, I want to win by seven, not by six, don’t get me wrong. But sympathy in our behaviour. Today was him, tomorrow it’s me.
“I can imagine tonight he is not going to sleep very, very well, but this is the hard life for us. But when I look to his team there was an evolution, it’s not like he arrives here and the team is improving. They have good players, bought young players. If it’s true that Cavani is coming, Cavani is one of the top strikers in the world.
“And Manchester United is Manchester United. It’s not this defeat that is going to destroy them, I can imagine they’ll react like Manchester United always react.
“I feel sympathy for the result, apart from that no sympathy because he has an incredible job. The players will stick to him if he feels the players like him and will stick with him. They will react, for sure.”
