Ferguson stepped down. The Red Devils are currently down in eighth place in the table, a whopping 18 points behind leaders a nd r e i g ni ng c hampions Manchester City. Mourinho has already admitted the top-four is United’s target this season and suggested the title will remain out of reach for a while if City are able to keep splashing the cash and go unchallenged over alleged breaches of spending rules.
Asked how long it will before United challenge for the title again, Mourinho said: “I don’t know. It depends on our evolution, but also other’s evolution.“If the ones above us keep going in same direction and if their ambition and investment is continuous, that’s one thing.
