Only he knows if he really means it, or if it’s just a way to keep his players as relaxed as possible, passing all the pressure on to Pep Guardiola and his Manchester City team.
United manager Jose Mourinho claimed that city rivals City have more chances to finish in the Premier League top four, because they’re playing only one game per week, unlike his own side.
They play now one game a week until the end of the season while we have the Europa League semi-finals which are very important for us. Obviously to play one match per week brings teams and players to other levels, so it’s more difficult for us but we are going to try
the Portuguese manager said in a Press conference. No matter what, he seemed confident that the next years will be full of successes for Man United;
It doesn’t matter what happens in terms of titles we win or don’t win. I always feel that the season is very important for me, the players and the club. I would say this can be the first season of the next five or six or seven. It can be the first season of better years
Mourinho said, expanding on how important it is for the club to win titles;
The reality is even in the first season of better years we won already the Community Shield and EFL Cup, and if we manage to win the Europa League and in August to play the European Super Cup against the Champions League winner, it will be magnificent
were his words. United are facing City on Thursday at the Etihad Stadium, sitting fifth in the table, one point below City.
