Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has made a U-turn on his decision just one week after claiming that his side will be into the top four by January.
The Portuguese boss had admitted that he was targeting the top four spot at the end of this year, but he has changed his words after drawing with Crystal Palace and Southampton.
The Red Devils have already secured the place in the knockout stage of the Champions League but they are still struggling in the Premier League.
Therefore, Mourinho has revealed that he has to revise his goals ahead of their clash with Arsenal on Wednesday night at Old Trafford.
“Before the Crystal Palace game I told my hopes and targets were, by the end of December, to be in that position,” Mourinho said.
“The target changed, but in the sense of let’s try to close the distance as best we can and be very close to these positions.”
“So I think it’s far from a miracle, we just need to not be so unlucky with problems that we have, we need some players to perform better than they are and we need to perform better as a team, but far from a miracle.”
Asked about word ‘miracle’ that he recently performed, the former Chelsea boss replied: “What? Nah.”
“I don’t know if I say or if I didn’t but if I used that word is not what I feel at all.”
“We have like eight or nine points from fourth something like that, I don’t think we need a miracle at all.”
“We need a good run of results, not waste points we shouldn’t waste.”
