Cape Town – Jose Mourinho is a target man and being the manager of Manchester United, the bullseye seemingly becomes huge.


Starting the Premier League season with two defeats from three games does not make life any easier for the Portuguese-born mentor.

Tottenham Hotspur‘s 3-0 victory at Old Trafford, the Theatre of Dreams, only deepens the wound that Brighton cut open at the Amex Stadium last weekend with their convincing 3-2 win.

The difference between the two encounters is that the Red Devils played much better in which they showed on Monday night.

But a loss is a loss and the media, especially the UK press, can turn things from bad to worse with a single headline.

“I need to know from you (reporter) what is the most important thing if it is is to play well or win matches? If it is to play offensively or for a certain result.”

The 55-year-old certainly does not make life any easier on himself with his reactions to probing questions from journalists.
