Man Utd fighting to be second best – Mourinho

first_imgManchester, United Kingdom | AFP | Jose Mourinho effectively conceded the Premier League title to Manchester City on Friday, admitting that his Manchester United side are competing to be “first of the last” in the table.United lost in midweek at Tottenham, allowing their local rivals to open up a commanding 15-point lead, with just 13 games remaining.But Mourinho insisted that there is still plenty for his team to play for in the league this season, with second place and qualification for the Champions League his primary focus.“It makes me feel that they are doing so, so well that they are not letting the others come close to that, as simple as that,” said Mourinho when asked how City’s dominance made him feel.“With the number of points and improvement we have in relation to last season, in normal conditions the distance would be a distance that leaves the fight open.“And, at the moment, the fight is open for second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth but it is practically closed for the first.”However, the Portuguese insisted that falling short to Pep Guardiola’s rampant City, who have dropped just seven points all season, shouldn’t be classified as a failure.“If you tell me all six want to be champion and only one will be champion and the other five fail, I think is too pragmatic a way to look at it because you can do positive work and not win the title,” added Mourinho.“I cannot say that we are doing bad or Tottenham is doing bad or Chelsea is doing bad because the number of points we have are a very reasonable number of points.” Mourinho was talking ahead of the home Premier League meeting with Huddersfield, where United will mark the 60th anniversary of the Munich air disaster that falls on Tuesday.The United manager paid his respects to the tragedy that shaped his club’s history but insisted that it is also vital that they return to winning ways.“It’s not because of this Munich disaster that the game becomes important for us,” he said. “The game is important because we need points to be the first of the last, we have to try to finish second.”– Better than last season –And Mourinho challenged his players to shrug off the after effects of defeat at Spurs to continue their upward curve in the league this season compared his debut campaign at United last year.“We were first for a few weeks and then we were always second, I don’t remember us being fourth, fifth or sixth, we have been there since the beginning of the season, better than last season in every aspect – points, position, number of goals scored, conceded, better in everything.“So we have to try to stay there and is not easy because there are very good teams. Chelsea is champions again, (had a) fantastic (transfer) market, Liverpool is a great team, Arsenal improved a lot in the market, Tottenham is a fantastic team and they are five points behind us.“So we are doing quite well, with some negative moments, Wednesday was one. It is very important to do better than last season and try to win something, and, if not, do better.”United look set to be without midfielder Marouane Fellaini for several weeks due to a knee injury, but Mourinho had more positive news on Eric Bailly and Zlatan Ibrahimovic who he hopes can both return before the end of the month.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Bility Boasts ‘Surprise Support’ for FIFA Presidential Race

first_imgWith 75 days to the deadline of registration of candidates in the FIFA Presidential Bid, Liberia’s football chief, Musa Bility, has revealed that 13 countries have assured him of his nomination to replace Sepp Blatter.Mr. Bility said instead of the traditional five recommendations from member countries, he has received a surprise support of 13 countries up to yesterday and claimed that he is a potential candidate.Though, he failed to reveal the nations that pledged support to his nomination, as part of his pioneering strategy, he said they are from Europe and the Caribbean.He made the disclosure yesterday at the Headquarters of the LFA, attended by scores of sports journalists.“I received support and I’m surprised of it – I need five countries in writing – but up now I have support from 13 countries – and I don’t want to expose these countries as part of our strategy,” Mr. Bility said.“I am running for FIFA president that wouldn’t change – some people have limited vision and they want me to also have that limited vision – it’s good to think big and I’m running for FIFA President.”“There would be stumbles, but I wouldn’t be deterred, but would try to do whatever it takes – but the only painful thing is what comes out of my country,” Bility indicated.The LFA president stated that he is and strong confident and wouldn’t change his presidential bid.Mr. Bility, 48, said that he knows the “math and know what to go for the kill,” arguing that he has always been on the winning side.In the 2006 and 2011 Presidential Elections, Mr. Bility supported the Unity Party led government of President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf and in the latter was the chairman of the mobilization campaign for Montserrado County – and in both elections, President Sirleaf won.In the 2014 Special Senatorial Elections, Mr. Bility campaigned against the UP in favor of Sen. George Weah.Mr. Bility reiterated that his meeting with CAF, which was declined – was not about CAF endorsing him.Bility said the CAF meeting was an honor to gain their moral support, because their support cannot translate into votes.He stressed that it was merely a privilege to have had the opportunity to talk to the entire CAF Executive Committee, to answer questions – concerns, admirations – all the issues that are wrong with football, – but it was considered only an opportunity to explain his platform for the football top post.“I would love for CAF to endorse me but if on the 28th of October, CAF doesn’t support me, I would only salute them and move on,” Mr. Bility said. Meanwhile, Bility said though President Sirleaf endorsed his candidacy evidence of the appeal by Deputy Information Minister Isaac Jackson to Liberians to rally their support for him, there are many Liberians who think he shouldn’t run for the presidency.“There are many of you who don’t want me to dream my own dream – it’s my right to run, but most Liberians think I’m running to represent the country, so I shouldn’t run – but it’s wrong – I am running as Musa Bility from Liberia,” Bility said.Meanwhile, besides Bility, four persons have also registered their interest, they include: Michel Platini, President of UEFA; Netherlands Football Federation president Michael van Praag; Chung Mong-joon, former Fifa vice-president and Luis Figo, former Real Madrid Player.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
