Jose Mourinho has insisted that he is still happy to be Manchester United manager, despite his poor start at Old Trafford.
The Portuguese replaced Louis van Gaal last summer, amid fanfare and expectation from the board and fans.
United won their first three Premier League fixtures under Mourinho, but have only managed one victory in their last seven outings. This leaves the Red Devils eight points off the top.
Mourinho is adamant that he is enjoying his time in Manchester and only not happy with the results.
“Of course I’m excited and I’m not happy with the results, that’s obvious. What I’m happy with is the performances,” Mourinho said ahead of Thursday’s Europa League game against Fenerbahce.
“Sometimes you win matches, but you feel that can’t last forever because the team is not playing well. But then you have performances where you feel that the results have to arrive sooner rather than later.
“The worst feeling a manager can have is not a bad result, but not to be happy with the players. I don’t have that feeling, I have exactly the opposite.
“After the bad result against Chelsea [a 4-0 defeat], the team reacted in an unbelievable way. The number of shots we had in the last match was something absolutely incredible.
“It’s a good example of what the team tried to have a different result.”
