Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has lashed out at rivals, saying they’re afraid of saying they want to win the EPL.
The Portuguese manager says the top clubs rivalling united for the EPL would rather not say if they want to win the title.
Speaking ahead of United’s Premier League opener against Bournemouth, Mourinho said: “Many teams think they can win it (the Premier League) but they are afraid to say it, they prefer to play a defensive game in the press.
“Man United has to say on day one that we want to win the title.”
The Premier League is set for its hotest title race in decades with United having signed several high profile stars such as Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
Pep Guardiola has also spent huge sums of money on the likes of John Stones, Leroy Sane and Ilkay Gundogan to push City into contention, while Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham are all being backed to be in the mix.
