Jose Mourinho slams Man Utd and Tottenham as new Roma boss claims he’s “a victim”

Jose Mourinho has slammed Manchester United and Tottenham after claiming he was victimised at both clubs.

It comes after the formal announcement of his new job as AS Roma, which he has started this week.

An agreement has been in place since April to take over next season at the Stadio Olimpico.

He took on the role not long after being sacked as Spurs manager following a turgid period of form that saw them crash out of the Europa League and looked down and out in the top four race in the Premier League.

And speaking as the new boss of Roma, Mourinho has taken a pop at his two last jobs in England.

The Special One said: “I’m a victim for what I’ve done in the past.

“For others, my ‘disasters’ are a success. I won 3 titles at United and they were not even considered and they stole me a cup final at Tottenham.”

Mourinho was sacked before Tottenham took on Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final with Ryan Mason taking charge.

Pep Guardiola’s men emerged victorious to keep Spurs from touching silverware for another season, with their last taste of a trophy coming in 2008.

The north London side struggled to find a successor to Mourinho for a number of months before Nuno Espirito Santo was hired last week.

He added: “The criticisms? I have nothing to answer.

“My last three clubs. Scudetto (title) with Chelsea, three cups with United, a final with Tottenham. What for me is a disaster someone has never done in their life. That’s how it is. It’s my fault.

“I will work 24 hours, except for a few hours to rest. I will do everything to defend my players and my club, I will not look for problems.

“I want to have fun and I think we can all have fun.”
