Jose Mourinho believes Manchester United finishing second last year was a great achievement because they finished ahead of teams with "more potential".

Winless in four Premier League games, the Red Devils are currently in eighth position and 18 points behind leaders Manchester City.

Speaking before Saturday's clash with Fulham, Mourinho was asked about his statement last season that finishing second was a great achievement, to which he gave a blunt response.

He said: "Because I'm not speaking about our own situation but you can finish 10th, I'm not saying us, I'm saying a team can finish 10th and a manager feels like a champion.


"If you speak with David Wagner, Rafa Benitez, Claudio [Ranieri] now, if you speak with them and tell them you are going to finish 10th they will feel like a champion, I made a fantastic job, I stayed in front of many teams with more potential than my team, last season I finished second and I felt we stayed ahead of teams with more potential than us.

It's as simple as that."
