Jose Mourinho has rubbished any talk of Manchester United’s troubles as his Chelsea side prepare to visit Old Trafford today(Sunday).
Following the disastrous tenure of David Moyes in 2013-14, United turned to Louis van Gaal in the close-season in the hope the Dutchman could return the club to winning ways.
Van Gaal brought the likes of Angel di Maria and Radamel Falcao to Old Trafford as United’s transfer dealings dominated the headlines during the window, but early results have been inconsistent despite the high-profile arrivals.
With Premier League leaders Chelsea visiting today, Mourinho has dismissed the notion that United are struggling.
“Man United are in a fantastic position,” he said. “You are in a difficult position when you don’t have the funds to be behind the rebuilding of a team.
“When you have the funds you have to buy well and coach them well, and I know Louis is capable of buying and coaching them well so they are fine.
“But we are very confident about ourselves. I am not interested in thinking which team Man United are going to play, who is playing and who isn’t playing.”
