Mourinho says Man Utd need big squad

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho says he needs a big squad for the coming season.

Mourinho was speaking after victory over Galatasaray.

He told MUTV: “Well if they were not in my plans I would not give them one single minute. I wouldn’t keep them in my squad. The squad is very competitive, the squad is very important for the season.”

“The other day I was telling them we have 38 matches in the Premier League, we have the possibility of 15 matches in the Europa League plus the domestic cups. We are going to play 60 matches and you cannot do that with 11 players.”

“To be in the squad you have to understand that the squad is more important than the individual, the club is more important than all of us and to be in the squad you have to be ready for this: to play, not to play, play a lot, play less, play 90 minutes, play one minute, not be selected.”

“Everything is part of squad life. And when you want to be in a big club like we are, the club is much more important than us.”
