Mourinho: Manchester United supporters have 'unrivalled passion'

Jose Mourinho says Manchester United fans are the most passionate of all the clubs he has managed.

After successful spells at Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid, it is at Old Trafford where Mourinho feels he gets the most backing from the supporters.

In the renewal brochure for season ticket holders, Mourinho said: "I have to say I've been impressed by your dedication and commitment, as season ticket holders here at United.

"I've managed several clubs and I have never seen such unrivalled passion. The stadium is full every time we play and the support the players receive is special.

"But it's not in our nature to stand still and reflect. We must look forward, work hard, improve, believe and enjoy the journey along the way."

Mourinho, who secured his first major silverware of his United tenure with victory over Southampton in the EFL Cup final on Sunday, underlined his aim to bring more trophies playing attractive football.

"When I joined Manchester United last year, I said that I knew what the supporters expected of me and what I expect from them," he added. "This hasn't changed.

"Everybody connected to this fantastic club wants success and this is the same for myself and for my players. We want to entertain, to attack, to score goals -- to win!"
