Jose Mourinho warns his rivals he is ‘on fire’ for new season

Jose Mourinho has warned his Premier League rivals that he is more motivated than ever for the new season.

The Manchester United boss will see his side kick off their Premier League season against West Ham, with the Red Devils given the chance to start the campaign in front of their home fans.

United will compete across four competitions this season including the Champions League and Mourinho cannot wait for the season to get started.

Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City, Tottenham and Liverpool will all be competing with United this season for major silverware, but Mourinho believes he is ‘on fire’ heading into the new campaign.

‘I want to play West Ham a difficult match, then go to Swansea for another difficult match,’ he said.

‘I want the Champions League to start. I want, I want, I’m on fire.

‘But I will behave on the touchline, even if goals are offside.’

Mourinho has often clashed with officials during games and has been the subject of more than a few slaps on the wrist from the FA.

The Portuguese cut a frustrated figure on the touchline at times last season, but Mourinho now insists this is his team.

‘In many ways, it is my team,’ he said.

‘In terms of the squad, this is my second transfer window.

‘I was thinking, three transfer windows, I need that. But after two windows I have a good group and a football club much better equipped.

‘We are much better organised in the areas that support the first-team squad.

‘We are much better organised at every level.

‘So we will go for it this season. We are going to try to win the title.’

West Ham travel to United expecting to line up against all three of Mourinho’s marquee signings.

Nemnaja Matic, Romelu Lukaku and Victor Lindelof are all set to start the opening game.
