Rui Faria Reveals Jose Mourinho Knew Being Manager at United Wasn’t an Easy Job

Manchester united assistant manager Rui Faria disclosed after the red devils draw with West Ham on Sunday that Portuguese boss Jose Mourinho knew taking over at Old Trafford as manager wasn’t an easy task and he added that if it was an easy job, then Louis Van Gaal or David Moyes would have been successful at the club according to reports in the ESPN.


Rui Faria took charge during Manchester United’s draw with West Ham at Old Trafford after red devils manager Jose Mourinho was dismissed to the stands by referee Jonathan Moss for kicking a water bottle in frustration after world record signing Paul Pogba received a yellow card for diving.

Manchester united have now recorded four straight draws at the theatre of dreams since the beginning of October under the Portuguese boss but red devils assistant manager Rui Faria admits they knew the Manchester united job wouldn’t be an easy one and they were aware of the difficult task that stands in front of them.

Rui Faria is quoted as saying by ESPN:

“Manchester united is a big club and we know how to win with big clubs but if the job was an easy one then our predecessors would have been successful here but we are confident that things will change and we believe in the players and the team”.

Rui Faria disclosed that during the game with West Ham, him and Jose Mourinho discussed things that were important and not the manager’s dismissal to the stands and he added that the decision to send off the Portuguese boss to the stands was part of football.
