Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho hailed the club’s “fantastic” fans, though he refused to back his squad after a frustrating transfer window.
After signing Brazil international midfielder Fred, Portuguese full-back Diogo Dalot and reserve goalkeeper Lee Grant, Mourinho wanted a further two recruits but none arrived before the Premier League’s transfer deadline amid a reported falling out with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.
Speaking ahead of Monday’s showdown against Tottenham at Old Trafford, Mourinho was asked if he was content with his squad and he replied, “You know my answer.”
Mourinho added: “I do not need to answer because I do not even know sometimes why I am here because you [the media] know everything. During the week it looks like you show that you know everything then I come here and you ask me questions. It’s a bit strange.”
