Former Real Madrid and Chelsea boss was sure good results would come at Manchester United despite a slow start
Jose Mourinho says he always believed in himself after a string of poor results [including draws with Burnley, West Ham and Stoke at Old Trafford] earlier in the campaign led to the Portuguese being criticised at Manchester United.
The Red Devils are back in form after winning nine matches on the bounce and are looking to make it 10 wins when they host Liverpool on Sunday, and Mourinho says his never say die attitude was key to their current resurgence.
"I never doubted," Mourinho told Sky Sports. "Even if my career goes through a period without good results, how many managers have had good results every year? I was a champion less than two years ago.

"I won the biggest domestic competition in the world two years ago, not 20 years ago, so it was not a problem for me.
"I know my quality, I know my motivations, I know my dreams because obviously I have dreams for my career. I am young as a manager. I don’t read much or watch much TV but the whispers arrived and we understood the critics were really strong.
"We kept our stability and we kept our belief in our quality but we needed results. Finally, when we started having, not just good performances, but also three points, we understood that things could really improve."
