In an interview with English daily, The Sun this week, Jose Mourinho took a look at the top five Premier League clubs and gave his verdict on Real Madrid's Champions League Round of 16 opponents, Manchester United. At one point of the interview, Mou claimed that he envied the stability which Arsene Wenger has at Arsenal - but only a little.
"Yes I would love to have that stability at a club. But at the same time I think for my mentality I also need the pressure to succeed. And if no one imposes that pressure on me then I would impose that pressure on myself - the pressure to win things" the coach explained.
"Yes it's possible to be one or two seasons building for the future and not being at the level to win things," he continued, "But no longer, because my mentality is I always need the pressure of winning things".
And as for Manchester United, who take on Mourinho's side for a place in the Champions League quarter-finals, he said that Sir Alex Ferguson's team are his favourites to win this year's Premier League. "United are top and when they are up there it is never easy to kick them out of first place," he ended.
