Pep Guardiola stands up for Jose Mourinho but says results are everything

City are undefeated in three games with seven points while United have lost two of their first three games, their worst start to a season since 1992-93.

Well, another major reason Man United are yet to sack Jose Mourinho is that he recently extend his contract in January, which will see him at the Club till 2020.

His comments infuriated club legend Paul Scholes, who insisted that there could be "no defence" for such remarks, with manager Mourinho also taking time to insist that questions about Pogba's remarks should be asked to the player himself.

That was the start of another edgy exchange between Mourinho and journalists in which he was asked whether he could still claim to be one of the greatest managers in the world should he fail to win a league title with United.

"I had last season great success, I had great success last season". "Did you read any philosopher?"

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

United finished 19 points behind rivals Manchester United in the Premier League last term but Mourinho feels his performance in 2017-18 stands up to his most successful campaigns, which include a treble triumph at Inter.

"People forget that. In this job you get questioned for what is happening now - people soon forget your history and what you've done".

Sky Sports News is reporting that the Portuguese coach still has the backing of Red Devils chiefs in the wake of Manchester United's 3-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford on Monday night.

"We did a good 60 or 70 minutes (against Spurs) and should have been winning 2-0 at halftime, but we didn't".
