Jose Mourinho’s first ever season at Old Trafford has already resulted in silverware for Manchester United as they lifted the League Cup with a late and exciting victory over Southampton at Wembley on Sunday.
The manager will be happy with the way his team performed by will know that there are a few positions in the squad that need to be worked upon.
This has seen him linked with a number of star players recently and though United are yet to move into the top-4, Mourinho is reportedly confident of being able to land some of the best players in the business at the end of the season.
Speaking to the media, Mourinho revealed that he is relatively happy with the squad at his disposal but felt that there is room in the squad for a couple of good signings in the summer.
“I think with this group of players, the squad we have and the difficulties we are having during the season, I think we are more than fine,” Mourinho said in his interview.
“I think we will be ready in July to open the door for two or three good players to help us to improve our level,” he added.
The Red Devils are currently in the 6th place in the points table, and have no chance of catching Chelsea at the summit but they are active in the FA Cup and also in the Europa League and Mourinho felt that the core of the squad is already at the club.
He went on to say that it was important for him to get his team to accept his methods and felt that having spent a season at the club, all he now needs is a ‘push’. The push being incoming transfers this summer.
“You reach a certain level of stability, you find your way to play, your philosophy and this is very important. We are stable in the way the team plays and we need one more push,” he said.
“The next push is the next transfer window. We didn’t use it in the winter and we are obviously going to use it in the summer and trust the players we have,” he added.
He also revealed that he is going to keep most of the star players in the squad at the club for another season and will only look to sign a couple of players at the end of the season.
“Like Mr Woodward was saying, we will keep a huge percentage of the players we have at this moment in the squad. We need the next push,” Mourinho added.
