Jose Mourinho 'plans to rest Antonio Valencia'

Manchester United will not win the Premier League title according to Craig Burley

Manchester United are not good enough to win the title this season - that's according to former Chelsea midfielder Craig Burley, who thinks that while United have certainly gone in the right direction this summer and under Jose Mourinho, they haven't improved enough.

19 points from their opening seven games constitute Manchester United's best start in the Premier League since the 2011/12 campaign when Manchester City pipped them to the title on goal difference, with Sergio Aguero scoring an iconic goal in stoppage time on the last day of the season.

"In another championship, this would mean nearly the title, but in England it means nothing".

Granted a fortnight of freedom by the ongoing global lull, Jose Mourinho returned home to Portugal to receive a special honour on Tuesday.

Speaking to Swedish newspaper Expressen during the current worldwide break, he said: "I feel no stress".

"I've said it all along, I'm not just jumping on a bandwagon".

"But I think clearly United have made a step forward, the results would suggest it".

The 54-year-old, who was having a road named after him in his homeland, said: "I come to Setubal because I love Setubal", he said.

'I do not know what I'll do in post-football - I'll be following children and grandchildren - but Setubal is always our home'. I have my mother and I feel closer to my father.

"It's a situation a little bit odd for me, because Setubal continues to be the only city where I feel like myself, Ze, Ze Mario". I'm pure Setubalense, with all the qualities and defects.

Setubal mayor Maria das Dores Meira added: "Here, on Jose Mourinho Avenue, it is Setubal that lives and affirms itself".
