Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is pretty much aware that although his side is on their way up at the moment, they may not be able to endure tight challenges against stronger oppositions and in pressure matches.
Mourinho left United when they were sixth in the Premier League. "Sometimes you laugh when you read stories about what I've said and stuff, at least I know the sources are just made up, blatant lies".
The club are winless in three games and Solskjaer's job will not get any easier with a Manchester Derby on Sunday morning (Singapore time).
The 56-year-old won the League Cup, the Europa League and the Community Shield during his time at United, as well as finishing runners-up in the league in 2017-18.
The Portuguese was out of work until taking over at Spurs in November, winning his first three matches.
Mourinho, meanwhile, says his time at United is "a closed chapter" and he is only interested in beating them.
"When Karim asked me about leaving Lyon I had received two offers: one from United and one from Real Madrid", explained Aulas. United, on the other hand, are believed to be very reluctant to sell in January, rendering a quick move for the enigmatic Frenchman very unlikely despite the longings of Zidane, agent Mino Raiola and Pogba himself, who has described the prospect of playing under Zidane as "a dream". I analyse them as an opponent, how they play. How can they beat us?
"Tomorrow I go back as the coach of the team that will try to beat Manchester United".
Mourinho was sacked by Manchester United previous year following a dismal end to his tenure.
