Ex-Manchester United head coach Jose Mourinho has said a loss of “passion” is what prevents a coach from improving.

The Portuguese manager joined the Red Devils in 2016, at which point he was still considered one of the best bosses in the world game.

Mourinho was able to deliver a League Cup and the Europa League in his first season at Old Trafford, however, he struggled to build on that strong start and was eventually dismissed midway through his third season at the helm.

While speaking about his career, Mourinho highlighted how he thinks a manager can continue to improve after so long in the game, per Esquire Italia (h/t Football Italia).

“I feel more like a coach today than 10 or 20 years ago,” he said.


“If a coach doesn’t improve it’s because he has lost the passion and has lost the mentality that helps him improve every day.


“It’s not a job where age is fundamental or the physical shape. It’s the opposite of the player. The experience can only make you better. I only think about the next match.


“All the games I have played and all the trophies I have won, those are in my pocket, and I will have time to look at them when I’m done. Now, I only want to think about the next game.”

Mourinho currently manages Roma, who have gone winning five and losing two of their first seven matches under him.
