"I trust in my work, that's for sure," said Mourinho, as quoted by Sky Sports.
"I have no reason not to trust - eight titles are eight titles and three Premier Leagues are three Premier Leagues.
"I believe in myself, but I don't play," added Mourinho.
"With my experience, you don't win titles with inconsistency.
"Consistency at every level, not just the performance level, but the mental, the day by day, everything must be consistent until the last day.
Mourinho: “We were the masters of complicated football. Everything was complicated. One more pass… One more trick… One more flick.” #MUFC— Manchester United (@MUFCScoop) April 15, 2018
The Red Devils have endured a torrid campaign by their lofty standards. They crashed out of the Champions League in the round-of-16 and also missed out on the League Cup. They are fighting tooth and nail to bag the FA Cup but must put up a great show to get the better of Tottenham Hotspur in the semi-final.
