Ten Hag hits back at Jose Mourinho


Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag, has hit back at comments made by Jose Mourinho, where he claimed that he never had the same level of “support” that the Dutchman enjoys at the Premier League.

Mourinho said Ten Hag has been given more backing in the transfer market than he got during his two-and-a-half years at Old Trafford.

However, Ten Hag has fired back, noting that Mourinho is the only manager in the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era to “get the players they wanted.”

He told ESPN Brasil: “Apart from Mourinho, the (other) managers didn’t get the players they wanted, and that is what you need.

“I am confident we will achieve our goals, but it is a tough competition. It is not a two-horse race anymore.

“There are seven, eight [teams in the Premier League] who all go for the title, who all have very good squads. So if you want to go to the title, you have to construct that squad.”
