Guardiola: Mourinho still a qualified coach

Lately, Manchester United’s tactician, Jose Mourinho, has often been the target of criticism related to the disappointing results achieved by his team at the start of the Premier League season. In fact, lately has begun to emerge the issue of the Portuguese coach’s dismissal from the Red Devils manager’s seat. According to the Manchester City coach, Pep Guardiola, Mourinho is still a qualified coach.

As is known, the Portuguese manager began dealing with Manchester United in the summer transfer window 2016. In his first season, he managed to deliver the Red Devils to the FA Community Shield, League Cup and Europa League trophies. While in his second season or last season, there was no trophy that Mourinho successfully presented, but he managed to deliver United to second place in the Premier League final standings, the club’s best ranking since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure in 2013 ago.

Unfortunately, Jose Mourinho has not received the full support of club officials in the summer transfer window this year, as the players he wants are not brought in by the club. This situation made Mourinho reportedly involved in a confrontation with United’s CEO, Ed Woodward. The situation got worse when the club swallowed two defeats in the last two Premier League games at the start of this season. The first against Brighton and Hove Albion, then when entertaining Tottenham Hotspur.

Not surprisingly, the situation is now increasingly difficult. For Mourinho, the Portuguese manager began to be associated with the issue of dismissal. Whereas according to the Manchester City’s coach, Pep Guardiola, the Portuguese coach is still a qualified coach.

“Of course we are judged based on the trophy we achieved, especially if you win a lot of titles, then you have succeeded, you know the history how Jose works in all the places he goes. There is no doubt in the quality,” said Guardiola.

Guardiola himself has got a negative surprise this season after seeing his team fail to steal full points from the promotion team’s headquarters, Wolverhampton Wanderers, last week.
