Not yet! Mourinho admits Man United are miles from where they need to be

Date Posted,April 7, 2017

Jose Mourinho has admitted Manchester United are nowhere near where he wants them to be – and spending is the answer.

United face Sunderland at the Stadium of Light today with their top-four hopes in the balance – despite an unbeaten run in the Premier League of 20 games.

United remain entrenched in sixth after drawing 10 times during that sequence.

And Mourinho confessed: “We have far to go. When you’re speaking about the 20-game unbeaten run, if you were speaking about just three more victories, then it would be different.

“I’m not talking about winning four, five, six or seven more games, just three. Against Bournemouth we missed a penalty. Hull crossed the midfield line once in 94 minutes. Both games were zero-zero.

“And there were other games like that. With just three more victories, we’d be quite stable in the top four with two matches in hand and playing to finish second or third. So what we have now is not bad at all –details make it look worse than it really is.”
