Jose Mourinho acknowledged he has little perception of Manchester United fans' attitudes towards him because he is not in contact with them. Red Devils' supporters have been critical of the Portuguese in recent times and the coach says he has little contact with them. United find themselves in a difficult position, having won just three of their past nine Premier League matches heading into Wednesday's game with in-form Arsenal.
Their most recent outing saw them stutter to a 2-2 draw at struggling Southampton, a match in which they had to come back from two goals down. And United fans are becoming increasingly frustrated with Mourinho's tactics, selections and comments about certain players. But Mourinho claimed ignorance to the fans' opinions, admitting he has little relationship with them.
"My life is not a life of very public life," Mourinho said in Tuesday's pre-match news conference. "I'm not a person that is all the time in the street or in contact with the fans, not really."
Things do not get much easier for United and Mourinho, as Unai Emery's Arsenal travel to Old Trafford on the back of an impressive morale-boosting 4-2 north London derby win over Tottenham. Emery has been applauded for his swift impact at Arsenal and, while Mourinho accepted things have changed at the Emirates, he is convinced they are helped by being in the Europa League and vowed his team will give them a thorough test.
