Mourinho: I view every wall as a door!
Watch part of Jose's epic 12-minute message to fans, in which his passion to succeed at United shone through...
“Yesterday, I met a new person that we have in the club, working in a different area, nothing to do with my job, it was a person that come from another club and I ask: "Why did you decide to come?" And the person told me: "Because, I did a fantastic job in another club, and I know that this club, I have a big, huge job in front of me to do, so I come for the challenge." Well done. Well done. My decision to come here was based on the same thing. I could be in another country, with a league in the pocket, the kind of league that you win even before the league starts, I could be, I'm not, I'm here. "I'm here and I'm going to be here. And no way, no way am I going to change my mentality. For me, you know, I don't know if you know the expression, I don't know if the translation to English makes you understand but there is a quote that I like, which is something like: "In every wall, every wall is a door." Every wall is a door. You know, I'm not going to run away, I'm not going to disappear, I'm not going to cry, because I heard a few boos. I'm not going to disappear from the tunnel, running immediately, the next match I will be the first to go out. "You know, I respect the fans, I'm not afraid of anything, I'm not afraid of my responsibilities. When I was 20 years old, I was nobody in football. I was somebody's son. What I was, with a lot of pride when I was 20 years old, I was somebody's son. You know? And now, with 55, I am what I am, I did what I did, because of work, because of my talent, and because of my mentality. So, you know, they can be together, you know that I understand that for many many many many many years was really really hard for the people that doesn't like me, here he is again. Here he wins again. Here he is again. Here he wins again. So for ten months, I win nothing, for ten months I win nothing. The last title that I won was ten months ago. "You know, I beat Liverpool, I beat Chelsea, I lose against Sevilla and now is their moment to be happy. Ok, you know, I also learnt that in my religious formation, be happy with others happiness, even if the others are your enemies. So, I am a very lucky guy and I'm really happy to be what I am.”
