Mourinho: I did not receive the transfer as Klopp or Pep
The former Manchester United boss, José Mourinho, has declared that Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp have won more luxuries than him in the Premier League.
The Portuguese has highlighted the support that Guardiola and Klopp have received in the transfer market since they took control respectively in Manchester City and Liverpool. Mourinho seemed to struggle to secure his planned transfer goals during the summer at Old Trafford, but Guardiola and Klopp did not have this problem.
"For me it's more complicated as a manager, because I do not focus on football itself, I have to focus on what it is to prepare the future," said Mourinho during his peak period on beIN Sports.
"I think the future starts to be prepared with principles.This is more important than football than watching and commenting.It is more important the culture that leads to the club, the principles, so it is a little more complex.
"But you have the case of Manchester City." In the first season, Guardiola was not a champion, it was really difficult and people expected a winning Manchester City.
"They had already come from the winning period, champions with (Roberto) Mancini and (Manuel) Pellegrini Some of the players were already champions twice, (Sergio) Aguero and (Vincent) Kompany, and in the first and second season Pep made big decisions , but great decisions that have been supported ".
"For example, he did not want to (Pablo) Zabaleta or (Bacary) Sagna, two right-backs and did not want (Aleksander) Kolarov or (Gael) Clichy, he sold four full-backs in the same summer and got four full-backs. , Danilo, (Benjamin) Mendy and another was supported.
"In Liverpool, I think how many players were in Liverpool before Jurgen arrived? No Alisson (Becker), no (Virgil) Van Dijk, no (Andrew) Robertson, no (Mohamed) Salah, no (Roberto) Firmino, no (Sadio) Mane, no Fabinho, no (Georginio) Wijnaldum, no (Naby) Keita, so this is a thorough job. "So when I talk about leadership about the club structure, it's not just leadership, it's all, even footballing ideas" .
