Pep Guardiola backs Jose Mourinho to turn things around

'Do You Read Hegel?' - Mourinho's Press Conference Takes Bizarre Turn Jose Mourinho Hits Out at Journalists Again After Being Questioned if He Is Still a Great Manager

Speaking to the media before Man City's narrow 2-1 win over Newcastle United, Guardiola explained how football managers are judged on results and how United "remain a top team".

Alexis Sánchez is expected to be back in the starting lineup when United travel to Burnley on Sunday but will not be joining up with the Chile squad for their two Asian friendlies during the worldwide break.

And Mourinho says the 29-year-old is planning to use the two-week worldwide break to improve his fitness ahead of a busy schedule for United.

Dalot's solid performance will come as welcome news to the Old Trafford faithful after losses to Brighton and Tottenham have marred Jose Mourinho's start to his second season in Manchester.

Jose Mourinho was desperate to sign defensive reinforcements this summer but moves for Harry Maguire, Yerry Mina, Jerome Boateng and Diego Godin all fell through. "I knew that because finishing second last season was hard".

Burnley have suffered a stuttering start to the season in their opening three league games, drawing 0-0 with Southampton on the opening day before losing to Watford and Fulham.

"I am the manager of one of the greatest clubs in the world, but I am also one of the greatest managers in the world", he said.

"I had last season great success".

Manchester United ended up in second place in the Premier League and without a trophy last season under Mourinho.

"If next week his manager decides to give him minutes against Spain or Switzerland that would be very good for him".

"Yeah, but they didn't have that song when we beat them at Wembley a couple of months ago, that final they had a big dream to go, a title they had a big dream to win, because they don't win many".

Mourinho reacted to the Spurs defeat by reminding everyone of how he had won more Premier League titles than his 19 managerial peers combined as he called on critics to show him the "respect" he deserves.

"Only the players know exactly who we are and normally even then we are judged - if they play, the manager is good, if they don't play the manager is not good", he further said.

"To be really good offensively you have to be solid at the back, all the best teams are, because that is what allows you the confidence to take risks".
