Jose Mourinho: We must improve our goalscoring

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho says they need to improve their goalscoring across his team.

Last season, United struggled to break teams down when top goalscorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic was absent or stuttered.

Mourinho knows they were over-reliant on the injured ex-Swedish striker's goals and wants more support for this season's main man Romelu Lukaku.

"In my other clubs what I had was more players scoring goals," he said.

"Midfield players scoring goals, wingers scoring goals, central defenders good in the air scoring goals at set-pieces.

"We always had that so my teams always had the goalscorer, we always had the guy that scores more goals, but then we had the winger who scored 15 goals, we had the midfield player who scored 10 goals, we had the central defender that scored five goals.

"Last season that didn't happen much – we were focused on the goals that our striker was scoring and when he was not scoring, the team was a little bit in trouble to win matches."
