Mourinho: I want to win League this season
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.”
