Mour­inho: I want to win League this sea­son

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Jose Mour­inho says he is tar­get­ing the Premier League ti­tle with Manch­ester United this sea­son. Mour­inho takes charge of a United side that has not won the league since Sir Alex Fer­gu­son’s re­tire­ment in 2013, with Louis van Gaal’s fourth-place fin­ish in 2014-15 their best since.

How­ever, af­ter rein­vig­o­rat­ing the squad with the ar­rivals of Zla­tan Ibrahi­movic, Hen­rikh Mkhi­taryan and Eric Bailly - and with Paul Pogba po­ten­tially fol­low­ing - he is op­ti­mistic that United are ready to chal­lenge once more.

“I want to be cham­pion,” Mour­inho said in The Sun yesterday. “To say be­fore the sea­son starts that the top four is the tar­get? The top four is not the tar­get. We want to play to be cham­pi­ons.”
