His comments have not gone down well with football fans, however, with many completely disregarding his view on the game.
Manchester United's board are prepared to offer Jose Mourinho a vote of confidence despite a troubled start to the new season, according to the Guardian.
Harry Kane was shown a deserved yellow card as the match neared the 25-minute mark for a sliding studs-up challenge on Antonio Valencia. After beating Leicester in its opener, United lost to Brighton 3-2 and now has three points after three rounds.
In a press conference following the heavy defeat, Mourinho lashed out at journalists in a moment of madness before exiting the room. Since moving on to United, though, the manager has struggled given the talent. "Me three, them two", he said.
"I won more Premierships alone than the other 19 managers together". The Mirror say the result leaves Mourinho on the brink, and noted how the United boss' elongated applause towards the Stretford End signalled how his time at Old Trafford could be coming to an end.
Kane all too easily got free at a corner and directed a super header into the top right-hand corner.
"But, look, we have a really good spirit, a really good group of lads and a group that want to work, want to achieve big things here".
"Three wins out of three - it's been a fantastic start", said the 25-year-old.
The fans and Mourinho's response came after a dominant first 45 minutes from the hosts before Spurs took control with two goals in two minutes just after the break.
Mourinho is the favourite to lose his job next in the Premier League, but Souness has labelled rumours about his future as "stupid".
"But all our fans don't read papers, all our fans don't watch television, all our fans are more intelligent than that - they answered in an absolutely incredible way".
Mourinho added: "I don't think it's normal for a team to lose at home and (the fans) react like that".
