Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho firmly believes that facing Benfica at the Estadio da Luz in their UEFA Champions League group stage match on Thursday won’t be an easy task for his men.
“Benfica will be tricky adversaries for us. Their results are not the real indicator. They have a good team,” Mourinho said in a press conference on Tuesday.
After victories over Basel and CSKA Moscow, Manchester United will take on their first major European task of the season.
However, Mourinho asked his team to keep calm. “Let’s think about us and not about Benfica. Let’s play our own game, our own match and try to get a good result,” the Manchester United boss added.
United, who drew 0-0 with Liverpool in a Premier League clash on the weekend, have won both their UEFA Champions League matches so far.
“Our sole objective is to qualify. This is a match we want to try and win,” Mourinho said.
