José Mourinho thinks that because of changed circumstances, impossible for him is the performance of Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United to match.

Mourinho, who last summer Louis van Gaal succeeded, says the performance of Ferguson to admire and place a comment to his own situation at Old Trafford.

“I don’t feel it as pressure. I experience the great history of the club just as positive. If the conditions are committed to the success of the past to emulate, then it is a different story,” said the 53-year-old Portuguese.

Ferguson won in his period of 27 years at United, including twice the Champions League and thirteen times the national championship. Also the Europe Cup II, the world cup for clubs and the FA Cup (five times) of fame on the hall of fame of the now 74-year-old Shot.

According to Mourinho, which had hitherto been somewhat disappointed at United with a sixth place in the Premier League, had Ferguson in his following years-could use a better lighting.

“He had players like Gary Neville, Paul Scholes, David Beckham, Ryan Giggs and Nicky Butt who are around the age of 25, 26 or 27 years old. It was already different if they were in their thirties.”


United take the Monday afternoon against Sunderland, the team of coach David Moyes. The Shot gold in 2013 as the successor of Ferguson, but was after a series of disappointing results soon to put aside.

“It just plays a role that you are dealing with generations. When Moyes came here, the situation was not easy, and it was not easy for that success to continue”, defends Mourinho and his colleague Moyes.

“At the same time, and that is in my eyes perhaps the most important reason, is the Premier League has changed.”

The match between United and Sunderland will begin Monday afternoon at 16.00 hours at Old Trafford. Also include leading Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal to come in action.
