Jose Mourinho has told everyone associated with Manchester United to forget the three-year period under David Moyes and Louis van Gaal as he looks to replicate the triumphant history that made the club a "giant".

Mourinho's excitement to be taking over a club with a "mystique and a romance" is clear, as is his desire to revive United's ailing fortunes.

Mourinho said: "Well, I think I am in the right moment in my career because Manchester United is one of these clubs where you need really to be prepared for it because it is what I used to call a giant club.

"And giant clubs must be for the best managers and I think I am ready for it, I am happy, I am proud.

"I think we can look at our club now in two perspectives," he said. "One perspective is the past three years and another perspective is the club history. I think I prefer to forget the past three years."
