Former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba believes Jose Mourinho would have won the Premier League if he was at Manchester City.

The Red Devils lost 3-1 to Manchester City before the international break and are now in a tough race to make top four.

But Drogba who recently called time on his footballing career do not think Mourinho is to blame for United’s problem.

The Chelsea legend claims his former boss would have won ‘two or three’ titles if he was at Manchester City.

“I think if you put [Mourinho] at Manchester City, he would have won the league twice, maybe two or three times.

“You get criticism because you set a standard of winning, winning and winning and now you’re not winning or having the same results.

“He is still [at Manchester United]. You have to look at all the managers who were at Manchester United the last few years.

“Being manager after Sir Alex Ferguson is not easy and the finances that they had then are not the same as what they have now.

“People only pay attention to the best. He’s one of the best and that’s why he gets all of this.”

Mourinho who is in his third season at United has been criticized for his team’s boring style. But Drogba who won three league titles at Chelsea with the Portuguese in his two stint believes the 55-year-old is doing everything to change the situation.

“I think he’s taking the challenge. Because it’s a big challenge and if people criticise you then how can you enjoy it? It’s tough. After all, he’s human,” he added.

“He’s trying to change his approach and that’s what the best managers do and when things are not working you try to change it.”
