Jose Mourinho thinks Manchester United will finish somewhere between fourth and sixth in the Premier League this season, adding they’re not capable of finishing in the top two.
The Red Devils finished sixth last season, qualifying for the Europa League but missing out on the big prize in securing Champions League football.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under pressure to return Manchester United to the Champions League this season, and the club are currently on track to do so.
Mourinho told Sky Sports: “I think it is very important that the objectives are clear for everybody. What are the objectives of the club?”
“From the outside, I think they will finish between fourth and sixth.
“That is my point of view and I don’t think they are a team capable of fighting for the top two, of course.
“I think it would be a good achievement for them to finish top four and make it back to the Champions League.
“That is why I think it is very important for everybody to share and agree with the objectives.
“Internally, I don’t know. I am just trying to guess, but if internally the objective is just trying to finish top four, and not at all thinking fighting for the title, I think it is the perfect environment to bring some young players and to try and do something for the future.”
