Jose Mourinho insists the gap that separates his side from Real Madrid is quite obvious ahead of the Super Cup clash on Tuesday.
Mourinho claimed victory in the UEFA Europa League last season to set up the super cup showdown in Skopje.
The Red Devils have bolstered their squad with the addition of Lindelof, Matic and Lukaku, but the Portuguese bemoans the difference between them still.
“We are going to try but the difference between the Champions League winners and Europa League winners is obvious,” he told a pre-match news conference.
“The Europa League is very difficult to win. There is a difference of quality but we believe it’s possible.
“My team should play and enjoy this special moment. It’s not many times in a player can play in the Super Cup unless you are Real or Barcelona, winning European trophies regularly.”
