The Red Devils have had a mixed campaign under the Portuguese coach, but he is confident there will be a great improvement next term.
Jose Mourinho demands he won’t commit errors in his second season at Manchester United now that he knows the club better from within.
United could even now end Mourinho’s first campaign at Old Trafford with two noteworthy trophies on the off chance that they can crush Ajax in the Europa League next Wednesday, having officially won the EFL Cup.
Yet, they have battled in the Premier League and will complete 6th paying little mind to their outcome in Sunday’s home match against Crystal Palace – meaning the Europa League speaks to their last opportunity to reach next season’s Champions League.
Mourinho focused on that the first season at any new club is constantly troublesome, yet is more idealistic around 2017-18 after what he has realized this term.
“I try to analyse the realities before I arrived in the club, but you only know the reality when you are inside,” Mourinho told Omnisport.
“The first season is hard. I enjoy the second because in the second I know I’m not making mistakes.
“You think you know the players, but you don’t. You only know them when you have them in good moments and bad moments. The one I really enjoy to do is the transition from the first to the second season.”
Mourinho feels completely upheld by the board as he hopes to make assist increments to United’s squad in the exchange window.
He continued: “I always had the question mark, what happened that stopped Man United being successful in the last three, four, five years?
“One answer: the reality of the Premier League, the economic power in many clubs. The stability that clubs manage to give.
“There is work to be done on the Manchester squad. The good thing is the club knows, the board knows and we are together on this process.”
