I put trophies above finishing top four – Mourinho takes swipe at Wenger


Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has taken a thinly veiled swipe at his Arsenal counterpart, Arsene Wenger, insisting he will always put trophies ahead of finishing in the top four.
Mourinho was speaking after their 2-1 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur, saw their chances of finishing in the top four effectively ended.
The United boss has always stated that his focus was on winning the Europa League, as a route into the Champions League.
“I don’t know other clubs, I don’t know the way they think, I don’t know what is important for them. We, Manchester United, for us it’s more important to win titles than to finish top four.
“So if we can win a third title, or as you like to say, a second title, if we can do that it would be magnificent for us. Because we don’t fight, we know it’s a big objective, we know that if we lose the final we don’t play Champions League, we know that.
“But we fight for titles and probably other clubs finishing in the top four, probably they would like to be in our position, to try to fight for a title,” Mourinho said.
