Mourinho insists he is ‘one of the greatest’

Former Manchester United captain Bryan Robson celebrates

Manchester United have reportedly offered forward Anthony Martial a new five-year contract, despite manager Jose Mourinho's recent attempts to sell the France worldwide.

That approach caused friction at United even when results were positive in his first two seasons as it did not fit with the attacking traditions of the club under Alex Ferguson and Matt Busby.

Mourinho is not the only figure to blame at Old Trafford, where the team have not won the Premier League since Ferguson's last season in 2012-13.

Zidane is a free agent after leaving Real Madrid and United would surely be interested in the Frenchman should they part company with their current manager.

A further report disclosed Vice Chairman, Ed Woodward is ready to stick with Jose Mourinho but the Portugal global has to pull a win over Burnley.

The 23-year-old defender's fortunes faltered last season, with Jose Mourinho preferring Ashley Young in his starting line-up - helping the veteran prove his form to win a place in the England World Cup squad.

Back-to-back defeats against Brighton and Tottenham have heaped pressure on manager Jose Mourinho and left United trailing in the wake of their rivals Manchester City and Liverpool.

The seed of unrest that has engulfed United's dressing room was sowed last season when Mourinho dropped star player Pogba to the bench and publicly criticized Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.

As Mourinho defiantly said himself, he has more Premier League titles than the other 19 managers in England's top flight put together.

"I had great success last season and that's what you probably don't want to admit", he added.

"We're in August. There are a lot of points to play for and the real season starts after the global break - every three games, the travelling and no time to prepare for the games". If that did not happen, I would not have won the titles.

But he said: "They didn't have that song when we beat them at Wembley a couple of months ago, they had a big dream to go to a cup final, to win a title because they don't win many".

After relegation from Division One last term, Ricky Sbragia's side remain unbeaten this season, winning two and drawing two of their opening four games.

Mourinho also explained his decision to stand in front of the fans at the end of Monday's defeat and applaud them.

'I had last season great success [in finishing second].

Having just suffered his worst ever home defeat as a manager, Mourinho took it upon himself to remind everyone how many times he has won the Premier League, asking for "respect, respect, respect".
