Maurizio Sarri believes Jose Mourinho deserves more respect for the success he has achieved as a coach and feels Manchester United have the strongest squad in the Premier League.
“We are talking about a coach who has won everything. He has won everywhere,” he told reporters. “I think I have to respect him. But I think that you all have to respect him as well.
“I think he is a very good coach, a very good manager and one of the best in the world. We are talking only about eight matches, they are doing well in the Champions League so they can improve in the Premier League, we are talking about two months.
“They are a very strong team. Player by player the best in the Premier League. I think Manchester City are better as a team at the moment, but player by player United are very strong.”
United visit Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday looking to continue their recovery from a disastrous start to the season which saw Mourinho’s future called into question.
