Manchester United Coach, Jose Mourinho Unhappy, Says United Deserve More Points In The Premier League
Jose Mourinho spoke in an exclusive interview with SkySports about Manchester United’s recent form.
Mourinho insists that his team’s performances have merited better results, despite the poor ranking.
The Red Devil’s coach said it is “unfair” that Manchester United have collected fewer points in the Premier League.
He, however, remains adamant, insisting that other title contenders are not better than United.
Presently, United are 13 points behind leaders Chelsea and nine adrift of Manchester City in fourth place after four draws in their last five games.
The Portuguese tactician says his side have deserved more with some outstanding defensive and goalkeeping displays denying them in recent weeks.
This weekend, Tottenham Hotspurs will be traveling to travel to Old Trafford to slug it out with United.
Mourinho Unhappy With United’s Premier League Position
Ahead of saturday’s game, Mourinho insists that there is no frustration on his part.
He believes more wins will come and is happy with the “evolution” of his side so far this season.
Mourinho told SkySports saying:
“I find it unfair.
“I find that we should have much more points than we have because you look at the table and it looks like other teams are better than us.
“Which, in my opinion, is not true.”
“So many draws that we deserve victories.
“If you could transform these draws into victories we would be very close to the top of the league.
“In between the top three or top four so I find more unfair but there is only one way – keep working.
“I am very happy with the evolution of the team.
“I am very happy with the difference between the team I inherited and the team which is playing now.
“And I keep saying the same: when you play very, very well you can expect good things to arrive so no frustration, just hope.”
Mourinho affirmed that he is “totally convinced” that United will start converting draws into wins.
Mourinho Unhappy Worse Teams Have More Points
He believes that, in terms of style of football and how they set up, the team are ahead of schedule and are exceeding his initial expectations.
According to him, in terms of the equality of their game and the organization of their football, United are above what he would expect.
He stated that the “evolution” was really good.
Speaking on his reaction to United’s latest league results, Mourinho said:
“In terms of results I am used to different results.
“I am used to a different kind of profile as a team: the team that scores one goal and doesn’t concede, the team that is very efficient and not in need of so much ball possession and control to have opportunities to score and score.”
Mourinho stated that he is disappointed that teams he considers not as good as United have more points.
“I am just a bit disappointed with that because I see teams in the Premier League – they are not comparable to us in terms of the quality of their game and they have much more points than us.”
