Jose Mourinho looking for more goalscorers at Manchester United

  • Manchester United's Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho gives his instructions during the UEFA Super Cup football match against Real Madrid

Since joining the Premier League, the Belgian has had four seasons of 15-plus goals, and a year ago he was on the scoresheet for a whopping 25 times.

Mourinho won the title in his second season in both spells at Chelsea, as well as during his time at Real Madrid and Inter Milan. We lost only one league match at home and in the cups never lost (at home), but there were too many draws. I don't think I am in a position of moaning, crying, contesting or to say I am not happy with it.

However, at the start of the window the Portuguese tactician identified four players to executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward in order to bolster his squad - meaning the job is only 75% complete, but Mourinho is adamant he won't cry if his final target fails to arrive before the end of the month.

Arsenal legend Ian Wright believes Manchester United have to win the league under Jose Mourinho in the upcoming 2017/18 season.

The former Chelsea and Porto boss has a unusual relationship with medals, and has often been seen to give them away to fans, even when they're Premier League winning medals. I will go with what I have to try to win everything.

However, the club did win the Europa League and the League Cup, giving the manager a platform of success on which to build.

Since then, United have splurged in the transfer market, spending almost £150m ($194.8m) on the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof as they look to improve on their league table finish last season. "I think we are ready". "If that is going to mean better results and the title, I don't know".

As far as Mourinho's team news is concerned, the likes of Rojo, Young, Shaw and Wilson are out injured (PhysioRoom).

While Mourinho has welcomed the new signings, he argues that of greater significance is the fact his team will not have their domestic fixture list disrupted by the Europa League this season.

And Mourinho admits that the Red Devils will have to deal with the weight of history on their shoulders when they return to the competition proper. The top seven, we are all in Europe. My hard work to motivate people to play in the Europa League with ambition and responsibility was hard.

"But despite the new-found goal threat I don't see United winning the league, they haven't got enough guile in midfield to pick through teams who will put 10 men behind the ball".
