Jose Mourinho: 'We're not good enough to play the United way'

Jose Mourinho

"A cup final they had a big dream to go to, a title they had a big dream to win, because they don't win many".

Mourinho wanted at least one more central defender in the summer transfer window, with Harry Maguire and Toby Alderweireld among the names mentioned, and though his grumbling about the club's parsimony appeared to unsettle his back line in the defeats by Brighton and Tottenham, he still maintains that defensive errors are all that stands between United and a good start to the season.

There was the possibility of a sensational return to Old Trafford for the five-time Ballon d'Or victor but Mourinho didn't think the deal made financial sense. Subscribe to our SMS sports service by texting "SPORTS" to 22840.

Chile boss Reinaldo Rueda hinted that United had exerted pressure on Sanchez to make himself unavailable, but Mourinho insists that it is a personal matter between the player and his national side.

"It's a big week for him that hangs on a very important match with Burnley", Mourinho said of the 23-year-old left-back. We are the last team in England to win a European competition.

The Red Devils signed veteran goalkeeper Lee Grant, young full-back Diogo Dalot, midfielder Fred and were interested in a sensational move for Cristiano Ronaldo.

When Arsenal supporters continually rented a plane to fly over the club's matches with the slogan "NO CONTRACT - #WENGER OUT" trailing behind, people - including Man Utd fans - were quick to mock them. If I say it again now it is not because of two defeats.

United came out on top against Tottenham in last season's FA Cup semi-final, winning 2-1 thanks to goals from Alexis Sanchez and Ander Herrera.

"Only the players know exactly who we are and normally even with the players we are judged, if they play we are good, if he doesn't play the manager is not good. After that it will be to win against Watford".

"I think Cristiano will like coming back as he was happy to come back when he was at Real Madrid". There are no doubts about his quality.
