Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho said that team are not ready to become the dominant force in the Premier League. United have complete seventh, fourth and fifth in the Premier League after the retirement of Ferguson with two Champions League and five FA Cups mainly for 27 years at Old Trafford.
Ferguson leads the club to 13 Premier League titles. Mourinho trusts that the club is still far too prepared and compete for major trophies on a reliable basis.
Mourinho said to BBC that “We are not ready to be a dominant force. We are not ready to try and win everything. Because of the nature of the club, and of myself, we are ready to fight for every game, every point.”
“But there is a space between the general ambition of such a giant club and what we are in reality.”
The 54-year-old Portuguese asked the club’s transfer business under his predecessor Louis van Gaal, who has sold strikers Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez and also Angel Di Maria.
Mourinho added “I would never have sold Di Maria, Chicharito (Hernandez), Danny Welbeck – never, no chance. I found a sad club. Manchester United sold players that I would never sell, bought players that I would never buy.”
Former Portuguese footballer Mourinho signed Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Eric Baily and Henrikh Mkhitaryan at the open of the season and allowed the midfielder to leave the club in January like Morgan Schneiderlin and Memphis Depay.
Manchester United defeats Russian face Rostov at 1-0 on Thursday to achieve the last eight of the Europa League and also sixth in the Premier League with 12 games to play.
