Man United boss Jose Mourinho claims his only objective on Saturday is to earn points towards a potential second-place finish in the League and not a battle of an imaginary ‘El Classico’.
United head to the Etihad Stadium to face neighbours Manchester City with the hosts able to wrap up the league title with victory over Mourinho’s men.
There have been suggestions that Mourinho would love nothing more than to stop City winning the title on Saturday but the former Madrid Coach claims he is just concentrating on finish second.
“My motivation is to finish second, I still have the motivation of finishing top four, mathematically is not done, is a good distance but not done so that’s the first objective but after that, I don’t hide,” Mourinho told reporters on Friday.
“That in practical terms and finish next season to finish second third or fourth is exactly the same, you don’t win the title but qualify for the Champions League group stage, but I prefer to finish third and fourth and second and first, and we have been second for many many months, is out objective to fight for that and for that we need points.
“My objective for tomorrow is trying to have points to finish second.”
