Jose Mourinho has promised Manchester United fans that the best is yet to come after his first season in charge at Old Trafford.

The Portuguese coach is looking to steer Manchester United to a top-four finish in his first season in charge at the club following his appointment as Louis van Gaal’s successor last summer.

Mourinho has already steered Manchester United to the EFL Cup and Community Shield titles in his first campaign at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils are also looking to secure Europa League glory and book their place in the top four of the Premier League this season.

And the Portuguese coach says there are better times ahead for Manchester United fans, as he readies his team for their crunch clash against Manchester City at The Etihad on Thursday night.

“It doesn’t matter what happens in terms of titles we win or don’t win,” Mourinho told Sky Sports. “I always feel that the season is very important for me, the players and the club.

“I would say this can be the first season of the next five or six or seven. It can be the first season of better years.

“And the reality is even in the first season of better years we won already and we have already the chance to do good things until the end of the season.

“If we manage to win the Europa League and in August to play the European Super Cup against the Champions League winner, it will be magnificent.”

Manchester United finished fifth and won the FA Cup last season under Louis van Gaal before Mourinho’s appointment back in May of last year.
