Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho has praised the team’s performance in the Premier League, but admits that the players are not yet ready to play in the Champions League.
The Portuguese, who was appointed to the position in May, has already won the Europa League, the League Cup and the Champions Cup.
“We have a good squad, but we need to improve the level of the game. We are not ready to compete for the Champions, but the Premier is a good opportunity to show our skills and win trophies. We have a long way to go, but I am confident we will be able to do it,” he said.
In the current season, the Red Devils have not yet been able to demonstrate their best football. The team has not won the Premier, and the last time it did so was in the 1990-91 season.
However, Mourinho is confident that the team will be ready to fight for the title again.
“We have the best players in the world, so we should not lose points. We will try to win the Premier and we will not give up. We need to work hard, and we are confident we can do it,” he said, adding that the club has a good chance of winning the Champions.
In order to do this, the team needs to improve its results in the domestic arena, as well as in the international arena.
Manchester City has already shown that it is capable of winning a major trophy, but Mourinho is not sure if the Citizens will be as successful in the future.
He said: “We are not at the level we want to be, but if we work hard and do our best, we can achieve great things.”
The Red Devils are in the middle of the fight for a place in the top four, and they need to win at least one of the remaining matches in order to be able not to finish in the lower half of the standings.
If they do not win in the next match, they will have to play at the playoff round, which will be held in the first half of August.
Jose Mourinho’s squad has a long tournament distance ahead, and it will be extremely difficult to achieve the desired results.
Team’s form in the current campaign
The Manchester United team is in the midst of a difficult season, and its current form is not encouraging.
After the defeat to Tottenham Hotspur in the League, Mourinho’s players are in a difficult position.
They have not won a match in a row, and their opponents have strengthened significantly.
Despite this, Mourinho believes that the current team is still able to win trophies, and he is confident of getting the result.
This is what he said about the current situation of the team: ‘We have not lost our shape, we are still able and ready to win. We can win the Europa and the League Cups, but not the Premier. We want to win it, but it is not easy to do so,’ he said in an interview with the sports website.
It is clear that the Red devils are not in the best shape, and this is the main reason for their failure in the season. However, Mourinho does not believe that the situation will get better in the near future. The Portuguese believes that his players will have a tough time in the fight against the teams in the elite.

Results of Mourinho’s team in the league
The current season of the Premier league is not going well for the Red Devil’s players. The last time the team won the title was in 1996, when the team was led by the legendary Jose Mourinho.
Since then, the club won the champion title three times. However the last victory was in 2002.
Mourinho has already said that he does not expect the team to win a major title this year.
Although the team is not in a good shape, it is still capable of performing well in the championship. The Red Devils will have their work cut out for them, as they are fighting against the main contenders for the champion’s title:
* Manchester City;
As for the Europa Cup, the players have not been able so far to demonstrate the desired level of performance.
There have been a few matches in which the team has been able, but they have not managed to win, and so far the team does not have a single point.
At the same time, the current results of the Red team are not encouraging, and there is a high probability that the season will end in the bottom half of a league table.
Main contenders for victory in the Europa
The season of English football has come to an end, and now the main fight for victory is being held in Europe.
Among the main favorites of the tournament, there are several clubs that have already won it:
• Manchester United;
Of course, the main contender for victory, especially for the gold medals, is the team from the capital of England, but there are also teams that are considered as outsiders.
These teams include:
1. Tottenham Hotspurs;
2. Manchester City.
