Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has claimed his spend of $357 million at the club is not enough after his team dropped more points, this time at home to Burnley on December 26.

Jesse Lingard came off the bench to score twice as United rescued a point having found themselves two goals down against the Clarets on Boxing Day, reported.

And Mourinho once again lamented his side’s luck, saying: “I don’t know how they score a goal from a free-kick, rebound here, rebound there.

When it was put to Mourinho that he has spent over £300 million on this United squad he responded: “It is not enough.”

He added: “We are in the second year of trying to rebuild a football team you know is not one of the best teams in the world. Man City buys full backs for the price of a striker.”

Mourinho was similarly bullish when asked if the team was going through a tricky spell after conceding late goals against Bristol City and Leicester City.

“Why? Because we deserve to win matches?” Mourinho responded.

“Because the opponent went to our goal twice and they score twice? The quality of our play, the risk that we took today and also against Leicester, the team that deserved to win both matches is us.”

United could be 16 points off Manchester City should Pep Guardiola’s side beat Newcastle United on Wednesday whilst champions Chelsea are now just a point behind Mourinho’s men after their win over Brighton.
