JOSE Mourinho has admitted he wants to match the records set by Sir Alex Ferguson as the Portuguese was officially unveiled by Manchester United on Tuesday.
The 53-year-old has replaced Louis van Gaal in charge of the Red Devils as the club look to regain their spot as a perennial title challenger in the English Premier League, a status which has escaped them following the end of Ferguson’s 27-year reign in 2013.
The Scotsman won 13 league crowns, five FA Cups, four League Cups, two Champions League titles and a Club World Cup during his time in charge of United and, while Mourinho has a history of spending only short spells with clubs, he says his intention is to build a Ferguson-style legacy at Old Trafford.
“I can’t hide that I want to chase Sir Alex’s record,” the Portuguese told the assembled press. “This is not a dream job, it is a reality. But it is a job that everyone wants and not everyone has a chance to have. But I have it.
