Mourinho insists he is happy with the current United's squad
- The Portuguese manager says he is going to enjoy new season even without new signings
United failed to sign new players before the transfer deadline. Mourinho reportedly had warned Ed Woodward that the club will face a "difficult season" with the current squad, however, now he insists he is happy with his players.
"I have my players and I like my players," Mourinho said as quoted by the Manchester Evening News. "I like to work with my players, one lie repeated 1000 times is still a lie, but the perception of people is that it's true. When you repeat 1000 times that my relationship with my players is not good, it's a lie, repeated 1000 times is still a lie. I like my players and my group.
"I enjoy the last season, the fight to finish where we finished and to manage the best position in five or six years. I'm going to enjoy this season. I know the words you want me to say or not to say. It depends on the music, but words don't come easy.
"By the end of November or December, you don't need words, you'll see by then which teams are candidates to win the Premier League. At the moment words are not important. let's play football and see by the end of November or December. You'll see which teams are candidates."
