Jose Mourinho doesn’t think United has a title shot

The Portuguese manager gave a press conference in which he used excuses that hint at a possible Manchester United season with no titles.

It looks like Jose Mourinho might be preparing the fans and the media for yet another failed season for Manchester United, he has used the same off the field tactics he usually applies when his team doesn’t look like it’s going to do well throughout the season.

The Manchester United boss has already stated that he doesn’t think Paul Pogba will be able to offer the Red Devils the same level of performance he has given in the World Cup with France, and now that it appears the club won’t get to sign the players Mourinho has requested during this transfer window, he hinted at yet another failing Premier League season for Manchester United.

“If you look to the players that Chelsea and Liverpool have in the pre-season, especially these two teams, also Arsenal, if you compare, you see the difference of the situation. Manchester City and Tottenham are in a similar situation as we, are but you can see that some other clubs are in a difficult situation. Our first match of the season is against Leicester and the second one is against Brighton and, if I look to Leicester, if I’m not wrong, only Harry Maguire and Jamie Vardy were in the World Cup in the final phase, because Kasper Schmeichel was back sooner.

“So I think a team working for six weeks minimum, with all the players except one defender and one striker, that can join in the last weekend and probably be available, is clear it’s a much better situation for them,” said Mourinho during a press conference in Los Angeles.
