Former Manchester United player Jaap Stam says he expects the club to challenge for Premier League glory this season.
Mourinho won the League Cup and Europa League Cup with Manchester United last season, but could not mount an EPL challenge.
Stam is hoping with the addition of Romelu Lukaku, Victor Lindelof and Nemanja Matic, that they can challenge for the trophy.
“A club like United, you always want to win the league. It’s always their aim. It has to be their aim, to win the league,” he told Sky Sports.
“Bringing certain players in with a certain quality, it’s always been like that at United as well.
“You’re always looking as a manager, Mourinho as well, how last season went and what quality do we need. You’re going to be looking for that as a club.
“You can see now, with the signings that they’ve done, brought some great players in; quality-wise very good, experience-wise very good as well.
“That makes it interesting as well because if you look at the other teams as well, they’re all bringing good players in because they all want to win the league or do well in the Champions League.”
