Mourinho unfazed by Ferguson's legacy

Jose Mourinho says that he isn't intimidated by the legacy left behind by Sir Alex Ferguson and also claims that Manchester United deserve to be second in the Premier League.

The Manchester United manager says that Ferguson's legacy can only be positive and he is not intimidated by one of his predecessors' success.

"I don't feel this job as a burden," he said. "I feel the great history of the club as only a positive thing".

Mourinho also spoke of United's progress under his stewardship and says that things are going to plan, as the Red Devils should have eight more points, meaning that they would be in second place.

"But if we had beaten at home Stoke, Arsenal, Burnley and West Ham - which we totally deserved to - we would be in this moment second (in the table).

"The reality is what we would be with eight more points, that we totally deserve.

"But in football there are no ifs. We have lots of things to improve at lots of levels.

"For example, one thing is we had training sessions with a desert of grass where somebody kicks the ball and it goes five kilometres away. It is different now, it looks a proper training ground, very good conditions, protected from the winds. So the intensity of the training sessions is much higher.

"That's just a simple detail. We have lots of details to improve".
