Tottenham boss Mourinho uses Fergie to take fresh swipe at Man Utd rival Solskjaer

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has taken aim at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over his trophyless run at Manchester United.

United boss Solskjaer, who has yet to win anything since taking charge nearly two-and-a-half years ago, claimed “trophies are for egos" for some managers and building long term foundations for success is more important to him.

Mourinho said: “It's his opinion. I'm pretty sure his big boss Sir Alex had a different opinion about it. But I respect what Solskjaer thinks. I think different.

“Freedom of thinking, freedom of ideas, and if that is what he thinks that is fine by me. It's not a problem for me, he's not being disrespectful to anyone.

“But I repeat I believe his big boss, and the biggest in Premier League history, has a different view in relation to that."
