Mourinho stated on Friday: “We have 22 and we are going to have 23 (players). I don’t like to speak about other clubs or players from other clubs. Other managers like to do that, they like to speak about my club and my players. I am very pragmatic on this.
“We have got a super striker Ibrahimovic and we are going to get a very good midfield player, so I am happy with the balance of my squad, I’m happy with the effort that the club has, and is still putting in for us.”
“I already heard two of my colleagues from other Premier League clubs and I have to confess I don’t like it. It’s not ethical.
“When others do that nobody says anything I don’t speak about the others, they can do what they want. We made decisions. We brought four players, not 10, who are Man United level and can really improve the squad.”
