Zinedine Zidane hits back at Jose Mourinho comments on Gareth Bale, as his side prepare for Super Cup final https://t.co/AA1K9fQ8zS pic.twitter.com/bWtHI20Txp — MailOnline Sport (@MailSport) August 7, 2017The Super Cup is the only European trophy Mourinho is yet to win as a coach, having lost the 2003 and 2013 editions while with Porto and Chelsea respectively. United have not lifted the trophy since 1991, and the Portuguese coach said his side were the underdogs to double Champions League holders Real. "We are going to try but the difference between the Champions League winners and Europa League winners is obvious. There is a big difference of quality but we believe it's possible," Mourinho said.
The coach also raised concerns about the scorching temperatures in the Macedonian capital, which have led tournament organisers UEFA to permit water breaks during Tuesday's game. "I knew the weather was like this and since we got back from the United States. In Madrid they have training sessions with the hot weather so must be more adapted than we are but we have to play and enjoy a special moment," he said. "It is not often a player has the chance to play a Super Cup unless you are like Madrid and Barcelona winning regular European trophies."
