Jose Mourinho feels press treatment of Manchester United is unfair compared to Liverpool and other rivals

Jose Mourinho suggested Manchester United can feel a bit aggrieved about the media treatment they receive compared to Liverpool and other clubs who finished below them.

The Red Devils boss, who predicted he wouldn't be able to bring in any new faces on transfer deadline day, believes his side's 2017-18 campaign was talked about so negatively in sections of the press that you'd never known they runners-up behind runaway leaders Manchester City - an achievement he claimed was one of the best in his career.

"My view is that first of all is difficult for me to believe we finished second," Mourinho said. "When I listen, when I read, not much but sometimes I do, is difficult to believe that we finished second.

"Because you are capable of making people that finish second look like they were relegated, and you are capable of people who win nothing, finish below us, and you make them look like serial winners. So is difficult for me to understand to feel or believe we can finish second.

"Which I keep saying, sometimes is also difficult for me to believe, that I won eight championships and three Premier Leagues, but I keep saying and thinking and feeling that the second last season was one of my biggest achievements in the game."

Liverpool remain trophyless after almost three years under the big spending Jurgen Klopp and last lifted silverware back in 2012 League Cup while Tottenham's last major honour was the same competition four years earlier.

There's a growing belief that Klopp will finally bring success to Anfield this year having shelled out a further £170million on new players and a 4-1 friendly victory over United last month has further boosted the perceived positivity surrounding the Merseysiders.
