GETTY Pep Guardiola has defended bitter Man Utd rival Jose Mourinho

If United lose at Burnley they will have suffered their worst start to a season wince 1986 when Ron Atkinson was in charge.

United have lost two of their first three games this season and executive vice-chairman Woodward is being blamed by the group for the club's position.

"Two defeats are two defeats".

But Mourinho is still angry that his employers refused to invest more than £75million on Brazilian midfielder Fred, teenage defender Diogo Dalot and third-choice keeper Lee Grant when he had spent the summer urging them to splash the cash on the defenders he felt were needed to mount a sustained challenge for the top trophies.

José Mourinho has described Juventus as major contenders in this season's Champions League because of the money they have invested, sending a none-too-subtle coded message not only to his former club Real Madrid but his present employers, Manchester United.

"Win at Burnley. Then win against Watford".

The man who labeled himself a "special one" when introducing himself to English soccer at Chelsea in 2004 said guiding United to a second-place finish in the Premier League last season, 19 points behind rival Manchester City, was "one of my greatest achievements in football". "That is the target we have", he added. We are the last team in England to win a European competition. They were always a big candidate but they transformed themselves into the biggest candidate. But even against that big team, we are going to try to win.

Ronaldo scored 118 goals in 292 matches at Man Utd between 2003 and 2009 prior to joining Real Madrid, where he spent three years with Mourinho.

When asked for his thoughts on the Spurs fans' chants on Monday, Mourinho told reporters: "They didn't have that song when we beat them at Wembley a couple of months ago".
