United lagging behind Europe's elite, says boss

MANCHESTER - Manchester United cannot be considered among the top band of teams in the Champions League, according to manager Jose Mourinho after his side brushed aside Basel 3-0 on its return to the competition.

Goals from substitutes Marouane Fellaini and Marcus Rashford sandwiched Romelu Lukaku's debut goal in the competition proper as United opened its Group A campaign in straightforward fashion on Tuesday.

There were eye-catching wins elsewhere - Barcelona beating Juventus 3-0, big-spending Paris Saint-Germain crushing Celtic 5-0 - and Mourinho said United could not currently be considered in the same bracket.
