Manchester United Jose Mourinho's given a robust defence of his record as a manager in an extraordinary 12 minute rant.
The Portuguese was being questioned this afternoon about United's exit to Sevilla in the last 16 of the Champions League midweek.
"Fans are the fans, and the fans have the right to have their opinions and to have their reactions," Mourinho said of the criticism he has faced this week for their approach in that loss against Sevilla.
"But there is something that I used to call football heritage - I try to translate from my Portuguese, which is almost perfect to my English that is far from perfect.
"But translation, word by word is something like football heritage and what a manager inherits is something like is that the last time Manchester United won the Champions League, which didn't happen a lot of times, was in 2008. The (last) final was 2011."
Mourinho argued that United's record in Europe since losing the 2011 final against Barcelona at Wembley.
"Since 2011, 2012 out in the group phase. The group was almost the same group as we had this season: Benfica, Basel and Galati from Romania. Out in the group phase.
"In 2013, out at Old Trafford in the last-16. I was in the other bench (as Real Madrid manager).
"In 2014, out in the quarter-final.
"In 2015, no European football.
In 2016, comes back to European football, out in the group phase, goes to Europa League and on the second knockout out, out of Europa League.
"On 2017, play Europa League, win Europa League with me and goes back to Champions League.
"In 2018, win the group phase with 15 points in possible 18 and loses at home the last-16.
"So, in seven years with four different managers, once not qualified for Europe, twice out in the group phase and the best was a quarter-final. This is football heritage.

The former Chelsea, Real Madrid and Porto boss says he currently has an 'amazing job' and he fully expects to remain in charge - and in control to set up the team to play his style of football.
"...the good thing for me and the amazing feeling for me is that I am exactly in the same page as the owners, as Mr Woodward, as Mr Arnold," he said..
"I am here and I am going to be here, and no way - no way - I am going to change my mentality," Mourinho said defiantly.
"For me, I don't know if you know the expression, I don't know if the translation to England makes you understand, but there is quote that I like which is something like 'in every wall is a door'.
"I am not going to run away, I am not going to disappear, I am not going to cry because I heard a few boos.
"I am not going to disappear from the tunnel, running immediately.
"The next match I'll be the first to go out. I respect the fans, I am not afraid anything. I am not afraid of my responsibilities."
