United have finished seventh, fourth and fifth in the Premier League since the retirement of Ferguson, who led the club to 13 Premier League titles, two Champions League trophies and five FA Cups in almost 27 years at Old Trafford.

Mourinho, who has already won the League Cup in his first season in charge, believes the club is still far from ready to compete for major trophies on a consistent basis.

“Because of the nature of the club, and of myself, we are ready to fight for every game, every point.

“But there is a space between the general ambition of such a giant club and what we are in reality.”

Mourinho, who won three league titles in two spells with Chelsea, also questioned the club’s transfer business under his predecessor Louis van Gaal, who sold strikers Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez as well as winger Angel Di Maria.
