Mourinho already moaning about Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea

The Man United manager Jose Mourinho is entering his third season at Old Trafford in the knowledge that he has never made it to a fourth season before at any club, and never failed to win a League title before either. So this is a crucial year for the Moaning One, and he has started it in typical fashion by complaining about how life is so unfair to him!

Despite every single top team having to deal with players coming back late from big competitions, obviously it is Mourinho who is going to suffer the most. Isn’t life so unfair! Mourinho said: “If you look to the players that Chelsea and Liverpool have in the pre-season, especially these two teams, also Arsenal, if you compare, you see the difference of the situation.

“Manchester City and Tottenham are in a similar situation as we are.

“But you can see that some other clubs are in a difficult situation.

“Our first match of the season is against Leicester and the second one is against Brighton.

“If I look to Leicester, if I’m not wrong, only Harry Maguire and Jamie Vardy were in the World Cup in the final phase, because Kasper Schmeichel was back sooner.”

“So I think a team working for six weeks minimum, with all the players except one defender and one striker that can join in the last weekend and probably be available, it’s clear it’s a much better situation for them.

“When I look to Brighton, I don’t think they have any player that isn’t doing a very good pre-season with lots of training and matches.

“So against Leicester and Brighton, the situation is not amazing for us and I would say the third match – against Tottenham – playing against a team in a similar situation as us, after three weeks, is okay.”

There is nothing like getting your excuses in early, but Jose, you are talking about Leicester and Brighton! If United can’t beat those teams with a weakened line-up then they have no chance of winning the League anyway. He should be thankful his first two games aren’t against teams like Man City and Chelsea, then he may have a good reason to moan!

    kikikik ii.. ..omg. Amazing Mourhinio

    1. Elly- Zambia says:

      TongaBull, how are u my guy.

  2. gotanidea says:

    He always makes many excuses

    I think he knows he would be axed in this season if Man United don’t get any major trophy, hence the moan

    I agree with the author, Mourinho should be thankful Man United’s first two games aren’t against top teams and he has got many expensive players/ big transfer budget in his arsenal

  3. McLovin says:

    Mourinho and Wenger are the Masters of making excuses.

    Big game tomorrow against a real opponent.

    1. John Ibrahim says:

      its only a friendly…dont get too serious on the scores

  4. Ilega jabo says:

    Jose is just a crybaby. Still wondering how he’s going to set-up against my beloved sarriball

  5. Zaidy James says:

    Chelsea have more and bigger players not on there pre season then Man United. His just being scared 3rd season syndrome

  6. Sue says:

    Sort your own team out before you start moaning about others! The special one… pfft!!!!

    1. Kenny Rolfe says:

      Right again Sue, I don’t see him moaning about the easy fixtures to start the season in an attempt to build confidence which they get every year, I don’t see him moaning about the maximum rest they get between matches which they get every year, I don’t see him moaning about the help they get from the FA, the PGMOL and the northern referees which they get every year. To see drop lip, moaning Mourinho almost crying on television has got to be the perfect start to the season.

  7. snowden says:

    There are those who come here who will point out that this is nothing to do with Arsenal so shouldn’t be here.

  8. Gifted says:

    How about Alexis going for another season without a trophy? And On the other hand, Ozil winning the EPL in Unai Emery’s first season….C’mon I know our chances aren’t that great but we are allowed to dream, right?

    1. Sue says:

      That would be brilliant ?

    2. Patrick_G says:

      That is our job as fans is to believe and dream 🙂 I hope it happens

  9. Innit says:

    Hope the rumour of Emery getting Vida is true. We need at least one solid CB.

  10. Adajim says:

    Mou can mourn all he wants dis is d first time in a long time that 85% of our squad will be available for selection after world cup. Let’s make use of this advantage against city, hit d ground running early, recently teams that won d league disappointed so b4 December. 2nd half of d season is always tiring, with lots of competition creeping in, tired legs, injuries, fatigue areexpected. Early poor run of games has been our undoing for years

    1. Adajim says:

      I mean to say ‘did’ not ‘disappointed ‘

  11. Pires says:

    I don’t care
    hope Unai will prepare well the boys…..

  12. Patrick_G says:

    We have always had a weaker team after the World Cup for like 3 games in, due to most of our players coming back tired and late, and our coaching staff did not prepare well for the start of the season. It’s great we have this opportunity to be prepared and fully energized with a full squad. 🙂

  13. Innit says:

    I so badly want to win our first match. Winning our first match and besting the Premier league champions would set a nice tone to start the season.
    If our defense stays together we have the fire power to do it. But our defense is a big “if” at the moment.

    1. OzzieGunner says:


  14. Samuel Akinsola Adebosin says:

    Let’s not concern ourselves much about Jose Mourinho’s moaning but to rather focus on our own issues and proffered solutions to them. So that Arsenal will have an excellent start to their Premier League campaign in their 2 first opening matches beating Man City and Chelsea. And beforehand. Unai Emery sees to the remaining Arsenal summer signing their 6th successfully.

  15. julius says:

    non of our business let them sort out there own issues

  16. Benex says:

    Vida again at 29 years of age, is there no any young CBs out there??
    we have enough of old players, if emery is still gonna add one or two players their age range should be around 20-25

  17. Chiza says:

    Emery will win us the EPL this season..remember when i said it here… Forget about the Europa league,it’s already done and dusted

    1. jon fox says:

      I expect you are convinced you will win the National Lottery every week too!

  18. Chiza says:

    Will we have the opportunity to rest our first team players.. For the European nights..while our rivals do the opposite…wenger couldn’t take advantage of that but i see Emery taking full advantage..he knows the Europa league very well……..Emery for the premier league and the Europa……bring those titles home..bring it to the paradise of football…super Emery

  19. GB says:

    Is this just Arsenal or just Man U ?
    I’m an Arsenal fan and not interested in what Mourinho says!

  20. jon fox says:

    So Mourinho moans once again. In another scoop I can reveal that rain is wet and the sun is hot. Quelle surprise!

  21. chukzyking007 says:

    Hahaha I laugh in Swahili, moaning moa, gooners go do the damage on the pitch,gooners KILL them all Footballtically

  22. Julius says:

    Arsenal play the champions and then the former champions in consecutive matches and we have not compared ourselves to anyone or tried to make silly excuses.
