Manchester, March 28 (IANS) Legendary former Manchester United head coach Alex Ferguson on Tuesday backed current boss Jose Mourinho saying he is “unlucky” not to see his side competing for the English Premier League title this season.

“He’s been a bit unlucky actually because there are home games this season they’ve been absolutely brilliant in but have drawn them,” Ferguson told SiriusXM FC in quotes reported by the Daily Telegraph.

“If they’d got those wins they deserved they’d be challenging for the league, there’s no doubt about that. He’s been a bit unlucky actually because there are home games this season they’ve been absolutely brilliant in but have drawn them.

“If they’d got those wins they deserved they’d be challenging for the league, there’s no doubt about that,” he added.

Mourinho’s United are currently fifth in the table after 27 league matches.

So far, Mourinho has already led his side to silverware this season, securing a 3-2 win over Southampton in the EFL Cup last month.

“Winning a trophy at United is the most important thing. That’s what the club’s history is about — winning trophies,” Ferguson said.

“I looked upon the League Cup as the manager (Mourinho) does. This is an important trophy. I was fortunate to win it four times. It doesn’t matter what the trophy is, if you get to a final you want to win it,” he added.
