Chelsea legend Didier Drogba has confidently claimed that current Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho would have won the Premier League title more than two times if he was Manchester City manager.
The Portuguese boss managed to win league title three times with Chelsea but has failed to make it at Old Trafford.
United are currently struggling to reach the top four as the North West side sit on the eighth position in the Premier League table.
However, Drogba, who has been Mourinho player at Chelsea, thinks the former Real Madrid boss is still the right manager for the Red Devils.
“I think if you put him at Manchester City, he would have won the league twice, maybe two or three times,” said Drogba.
“You get criticism because you set a standard of winning, winning and winning and now you’re not winning or having the same results.”
“He is still there. You have to look at all the managers who were at Manchester United in the last few years.”
“Being manager after Sir Alex Ferguson is not easy and the finances that they had then are not the same as what they have now.”
“People only pay attention to the best and he’s one of the best and that’s why he gets all of this.”
“I think he’s taking the challenge because it’s a big challenge and if people criticise you then how can you enjoy it? It’s tough. After all, he’s human.”
“He’s trying to change his approach and that’s what the best managers do and when things are not working you try to change it.”
Mourinho won just three titles at Old Trafford including English Football League Cup, FA Community Shield and UEFA Europa League.
