Manchester United manager Joe Mourinho has made an honest admission about his squad after Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford spared the Red Devils an embarrassment on Tuesday night against CSKA Moscow in the Champions League.United had to come from behind to secure their place in the last 16 of the competition - the first time they have progressed that far since David Moyes was in charge in 2014. Victory at Old Trafford ensured Mourinho's team finished above second-placed Basel in Group A with 15 points from their six games. In the video below, Mourinho told a harsh truth about United's players by saying they are NOT candidates for the Champions League right now, believing they are far from challenging for the title due to the strength around them. Way to be positive, Jose.
Manchester United face arguably their most important match of the season when they face rivals Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday.
