United need ‘two more years’ to become top European contenders, says Jose Mourinho

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho makes Thursday’s back pages after claiming he needs another two years before his club can really be contenders in Europe, again. Mourinho is quoted by the Daily Star as having said that despite being a “giant” club, United cannot depend on it’s reputation alone to compete for major titles.

He said: “We have a giant on our chest which is really heavy, but we don’t compare to the biggest clubs in Europe right now.

“Because Manchester United is a real giant, it doesn’t matter if the club is somewhat far away from that level for three, four, five or 10 years…But our job is to try to bring the football team back to that stature.”
