Manchester united manager Jose Mourinho says his happiness depends on the way the team ends the season.
The Portuguese refused to give a specific position he sees United finishing at.
The Red devils finished outside the Champions league spot under Louis Van Gaal last season and Mourinho says finishing fourth is way out of his target.
In an interview With Sky Sports News HQ, he said: “For me to be happy, it’s an accumulation of factors. For me to be happy is the way we end the season playing, the evolution of the team, the empathy with the supporters, the results in many different competitions we are playing.
“So let’s see where we finish, I don’t want to say fourth, because I think we can do better than fourth
“But we have the risk of not finishing fourth because the competition is so hard and the top teams have the same ambitions as we have. So I don’t want to say fourth or third or fifth.”
When asked if he has a message for the supporters at Christmas, he said:
“To thank them, because I know they believe in us.
“So there is no point in saying: ‘Believe in us, give us time, we are going to do it.’ I think they believe in us, I think they are together with the team, I never had bad matches or bad results at home and felt the people so supportive as they have.
“We are together, so just stay healthy and stay with us, 2017 will be better than 2016. I think we are really together. There is a sense of unity between us and the fans. I’m loving that feeling a lot.”
Manchester united are currently in sixth place after three straight wins
