Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has dramatically stated that he has a stupid ambition for the club.
The 53-year-old Portuguese guided the 12-time FA Cup winners lift the Community Shield at Wembley Stadium after beating Ahmed Musa’s Leicester City at Wembly on Sunday.
Mourinho who has won titles for every club he has managed in his very successful coaching career told reporters that he wants the Red Devils to win every single match in all competitions this season and revealed that he is now focused on the Premier League opener against Bournemouth.
“My ambition is a stupid ambition, I have to confess, because it is an impossible ambition,” Jose admitted. “My ambition is to win every game, so my ambition now is to win against Bournemouth.
“That will be very difficult. Can we win? We have to think about that. After Bournemouth, it doesn’t matter about the result, we will play against Southampton and we want to win.
“We want to win every game. It is a very stupid motivation but if you look in a different perspective then it is what we have to do – improve, improve, improve and every match we will try to win.”
Mourinho’s statement of intent echoed a similar statement that he made last Friday, when he revealed he has given his players the “unrealistic target” of winning the Premier League title.
