Jose Mourinho: These will be Manchester United's objectives next season


Manchester United will fight for the Premier League title next season, manager Jose Mourinho has said.

The Portuguese has declared that he is not happy to "do well" in the Europa League or to fight for a Top Four finish.

The Red Devils endured a very disappointing campaign last season as they could only finish fifth in the domestic league.

But more will be expected from Mourinho's men especially after the signings of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

"It depends on the way you want to face it. I was never very good playing with words and hiding behind words and hiding behind philosophies," Mourinho told reporters.

"I was never good with that. I never tried to be. I was almost much more aggressive in my approach with the risks that can bring.

"It would be easy, honest and pragmatic from my side to focus on the last three years and focus on the fact that we don't qualify for the Champions League and so on.

"It would be pragmatic to say let's work and try to get back to the top four and do well in Europa League. I'm not good on that -- I don't want to be, I want to be more aggressive. And to be more aggressive is to say we want to win.

"I can anticipate that any of you that come with a question about the style of play and what is before is the result ... I can imagine one of those questions is around the corner.

"I can anticipate by saying you can win a short competition, a couple of matches without playing well. But you can't win competitions by not playing well. What is playing well? To score more than your opponent; to make your fans proud because you win."
