Man United boss Jose Mourinho replies to being labelled the best manager in the world

Jose Mourinho dismisses Zorya manager's comments about the Manchester United boss

Jose Mourinho has dismissed suggestions that he could be considered as the best manager in the world.

The Manchester United boss was given the label by Zorya manager Yuriy Vernydub ahead of Thursday’s Europa League clash between the two sides.

It has been a difficult start to the season for Mourinho since his appointment as Manchester United boss back in May.

His side have struggled to find consistent form in the Premier League and have only won two of their last 10 games in the top flight.

That miserable run of form has left the Red Devils trailing Premier League leaders Chelsea by 13 points after 14 games of the new campaign.

And Mourinho has disagreed with Vernydub’s assessment of him.

Mourinho is quoted as saying by The Daily Express: “It’s nice saying that, but I don’t think he’s right. The best coach in the world doesn’t exist.

“Every season, one has to win the Fifa Golden Ball but I don’t think there is the best. You can say the best of the year and that I agree that every year there is one with the most important result.

“He’s just being nice, no more than that. Learn with me? I think he learns with me the same I learn with him.”
