Manchester United suffered a 0-3 win against Tottenham Hotspur on Monday night, which means the Red Devils are now struggling in the middle of Premier League table with only 3 points after 3 games so far.

Speaking after the game, former Chelsea manager José Mourinho had a clash with a journalist as he called for more ‘respect’ despite United’s crushing defeat to Spurs at Old Trafford.

He said: “You want to make the miracle of my team played so well and strategically we were so, so good and you want to try and transform this press conference into ‘let’s blame the guy’… you can try. Keep trying.”

“When I win matches I come here many times and you are not happy and you say the most important is the way of playing. I need to know what is the most important thing if it is is to play well or win matches?” 
“Just to finish, do you know the result? 3-0. 3-0. Do you know what this means? It also means, 3 Premierships and I won more Premierships alone than the other 19 managers together. Three for me… and two for them”.

Then, walking out of the room, Mourinho added: “Respect. Respect. Respect. Respect.”

Cahill told Chelsea’s official website: “Certainly we feel the sense of uncertainty. That’s obvious to everyone in the last few months. Obviously as players we have no impact on that situation. If I was a betting man, I’m sure the club and the manager will have spoken. Let’s see”.

“All I can say is it’s been a great finish. If the manager stays on then he stays on; if he doesn’t then he’s gone away with an FA Cup. I’m sure the manager will make the best decision for himself and his family and the club will make what they feel is the best decision. It’s totally out of our hands”. 

Conte himself admitted he worked even harder than last season in the last few months to improve the squad and revive Chelsea season.

“I think that’s something that everyone at the club can be proud of, even the people who you don’t see behind the scenes but who work tirelessly every day. It’s a long slog in the season. Everyone feels like we’ve got the reward, and now we’re going to celebrate and have a good time.”

The England international added he would also quiet down rumors as ‘the future is out of our hands’.

“Probably the uncertainty to be put to bed and whatever’s going to happen to happen. We’ll see what happens. It’s out of our hands. We have to try and deliver on the pitch. We fell short in some aspects of the season but today we produced, and the rest behind the scenes is not down to us. A lot of the lads have got big summers ahead.”
