Jose Mourinho says he is ready for the task of rebuilding Manchester United, insisting: "I am where I want to be."

The new United manager added: "I think it is a job everyone wants and not many have a chance to have and I have it."

Former Chelsea boss Mourinho succeeds Dutchman Louis van Gaal, who was sacked after United's FA Cup success in May.

The Portuguese said he was "frustrated" United are not in the Champions League next season but insisted he was at Old Trafford to win trophies.

Mourinho also said that:

  • He wants to make four major signings;
  • He is not to blame for the departure of Ryan Giggs;
  • He will not play Wayne Rooney in midfield;
  • He has a track record of promoting young players.

United, the 20-time English champions, finished fifth in the Premier League last season, 15 points adrift of shock champions Leicester City.

United won the FA Cup, but the campaign was generally viewed as another disappointment, prompting the sacking of Van Gaal in May.

"It would be quite pragmatic to say let's work and let's try to be back to the Champions League, be back to the top four," said Mourinho.

"I am not good on that and I didn't want to be good on that. I am more aggressive. We want to win.

"For many years, success was just routine and in this moment the last three years are to forget. I want the players to forget. I don't want the players to think we have to do better and finish fourth. Finishing fourth is not the aim.

"I want everything. I want to win matches, I want to play well, I don't want to concede goals. I want the fans to be behind us.

"Of course, we're not going to get everything, but we want to."

Asked if he had a point to prove after his second stint at Chelsea ended in the sack, Mourinho responded: "There are some managers who haven't won titles for 10 years. Some of them never. The last time I won was a year ago."

Mourinho, who led the Blues to the Premier League title in 2015, added: "If I have something to prove, imagine the others. That's my feeling.

"I feel that I have to prove not to the others but to myself. I would never be able to work without success. That is my nature."
