Jose Mourinho fires warning to Premier League rivals: Our objective is to be champions


Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has confirmed that his side's objective this season is to win the English Premier League.

The Red Devils made it three out of three after a hard-fought win away at Hull City on Saturday afternoon.

They will host Manchester City when the domestic league resumes after the international break before three consecutive away games at Feyenoord, Watford and Northampton.

"The spirit is amazing," Mourinho told MUTV and BT Sport.

"You only win these matches if you want to win a lot. If you are in a comfortable situation and you think a point is not bad or you think let's see what's going to happen, you don't win, but the boys until the last minute believed.

"Of course I feel sorry for Hull but my guys deserved it and the way the fans supported them, especially in the second half, the fans had that feeling too and knew we were doing everything.

"We started to think about what this game could be even before the game started. We knew the way they defended. We knew that [Tom] Huddlestone would play in a line of three and we knew they would be very organised.

"Tactically you can change things, bring situations to the game, try to create problems for your opponent, but it's the mental side of it that can make a difference. We speak about this all the time.

"Our objective is only one – to be champions.

"If at the end of the season we finish second, third or fourth it's because someone is better than us, if you finish fifth or sixth it's because we were not good enough. You have to play to win every game.

"If we don't win, we don't win, but the mentality is there and the boys are giving everything . It's amazing when I look to my side and I see the people on the bench suffering with us and then jumping for the goal. It's a privilege for me to work with these guys."
