Cape Town - Manchester
United manager Jose Mourinho says he wants more success in seasons to
come after winning both the Europa League and EFL Cup in his first two
seasons in charge.
In addition, the Red Devils secured a UEFA Champions League spot for
2018/19 after defeating Arsenal on Sunday in the Premier League. United
also have an FA Cup final to look forward to against fierce rivals
Chelsea at the end of the campaign.
However, despite the achievements, Mourinho believes more silverware
must be forthcoming to live up to the legacy of retired former boss Alex
He told Sky Sports: "I think if we finish second it's the
first time for five years, since Sir Alex left. Okay, progress, progress
at many levels, but not enough to be first instead of second, and not
enough to win the Champions League instead of the Europa League.
"But enough to be stable, win some trophies, reach some finals, but we need more."
The experienced Portuguese mentor added that success in every
competition is the target which he strives for. He concluded: "I think
we always say the most important is the one you win.
"When I won the Champions League I say the Champions League is most
important for me. When I won the league, the league were more
important for me.
"And when I won nothing, I said winning is not that important"
The 20-time English top flight winners are still yet to secure second
place behind champions Man City, though they could take a step towards
doing just that if they beat Brighton & Hove Albion in their next
match on Friday.
