JOSE Mourinho might have demanded more respect on Monday, but there's plenty heading his way from Burnley boss Sean Dyche.

The under pressure Manchester United manager said he was due more respect for his previous title-winning sides following the Red Devils' 3-0 defeat to Tottenham on Monday night.

Mourinho was at Turf Moor on Thursday to see Burnley exit the Europa League against Olympiakos. But instead of taking up a seat in the directors' box as usual for opposing managers, he asked to be out of the spotlight and sat on the back row of the Bob Lord Stand, with a baseball cap on.

"My respect for people like Jose is because I’m a young manager, learning the game, and these people have done enormous things in the game," Dyche said.

“In this game you get questioned for what you’re doing now, people forget your history and what you’ve done. He has done massive things for the game for his clubs and himself.

“I’ve respect for all managers. It’s a tough job whether you’re managing in the Premier League or non-league, it’s a very tough job.

“You’ve got to have a bit more respect when they’ve done what they’ve done in the game.”

Despite the question marks surrounding Mourinho's reign at Old Trafford, Dyche believes he will be able to see the bigger picture and get his team ready for what is likely to be a difficult trip to Turf Moor after the Clarets showed signs of rediscovering their own form on Thursday night.

“I’m certainly not going to question his conduct because he knows what he’s doing, I’m pretty sure of that whatever everyone else thinks," he said.

"He’s so rounded in the press, in the media, at his different clubs, in winning, playing well, not playing well.

"I think he will have the ability to see through everything and get his team ready to perform. Therefore we’ve got to be at our best. We might need the rub of the green and key players to play well etc, etc."

United have suffered back-to-back defeats to Brighton and Tottenham.

Dyche added: "I think the surprise is the results side of it, not their performances. I thought they were excellent for the first 30 minutes against Tottenham.

“Brighton, they’ve come out and said they were disappointed about that.

“But you quickly remind yourself when you look at their teamsheet and the players they’ve got and the manager they’ve got, that they’re a top-class side, it’s as simple as that, and a massive football club.

“It’s a massive challenge to get a result against them or beat them.”
