Manchester United are 16 points behind premier league leaders Liverpool, having won just one of their previous five Premier League games.
Jose Mourinho, who took charge as manager in May 2016, conceded: (We have doubts about everything)
But we are also going with the players we have available and a team that is capable of going there to fight for victory.
Jose Mourinho who won the EFL Cup and Europa League in his first season in charge at Old Trafford.
Since then, his team’s style has been questioned and there have also been some criticisms of his record signing Paul Pogba, who cost £89m and Romelu Lukaku, who cost £75m.
Liverpool club manager Jurgen Klopp has been praised for the way in which his club is playing, but they are still yet to win a trophy under the German coach, who took over in October 2015.
However, he also guided them to the 2016 League Cup and Europa League final, and also the last season’s Champions League final, where Liverpool lost 3-1 to Spanish side Real Madrid.
When been asked if the amount of money his north-west rivals had spent last season was the difference between the two teams, Mourinho replied: It’s not just all about spending money and reinforcing the squad, a football team is always more than that.
it’s like a house. it’s not just about buying the furniture in the house, you have to do some work, you spend money on the best possible furniture and then you’re ready to live in an amazing house.
Asked if winning trophies matter, Mourinho said: I think trophies matter, it matters, especially when you have the potential to fight for trophies and especially when you clearly say the objective is to win the trophy.
I think sometimes to just say it is not very wise, but when you have the potential, you have nothing to hide, you know from day one your potential and your desire has a relation with the potential.
