Sky Sport News today reports that Jose Mourinho reportedly stated that Manchester United have been somewhat still, failing to evolve under the leadership of both Louis van Gaal and David Moyes.

According to him, ever since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson, United have struggled to replicate the success that saw them become Premier League giants under Six Alex Ferguson, who guided the club to the last of their 20 top-flight titles in 2013.

It will be recalled that Ferguson’s successor Moyes was sacked after 10 months in charge while early promise under Van Gaal fizzled out, even though the Dutchman ended his reign by winning the FA Cup.

Sky Sport News reports that Mourinho, who won the EFL Cup and the Europa League in his first season at Old Trafford, believes he inherited a side that were burdened by past successes.

According to his statement while briefing Sunday Times: “There was an evolution in the other clubs; there was no evolution in this club. In all the areas that make a team successful, I think we stopped in time.

“That was quite an empty period in the club with no evolution in areas that are important. It was the weight of the past on the shoulders of the players, managers, even boards, even probably owners, because when you are used to ‘win and win and win’, and suddenly you stop, it’s like a heavy burden.

“Today, we have better working conditions, a better medical department, a better analysis department, a better scouting department, a better media department, and in many cases we did it without changing the people, which is quite important.”
