Jose Mourinho admits needing to break LVG influence on players

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho admits he’s trying to break down the influence of Louis van Gaal in his players.

Mourinho says he’s been working hard on the mentality of his squad.

He explained today: “My teams are different than Mr Van Gaal’s.

“It’s a difficult situation to change the dynamics – it would be easier for me to have 20 new players and start from zero. After two years of work, there are things in their brains that are automatic.

“That’s difficult to change, but we are working hard and the players are giving everything to adapt. Step by step, my team is going to be my team.”
