Mourinho: We Haven't Spent Enough Money!

Jose Mourinho: We Haven't Spent Enough Money!

By Kurt Buckerfield - Dec 27, 2017 10:29 AM @KurtLaduma

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho believes the club has not spent enough money on players at Old Trafford, despite having splashed out almost R5 billion on signings since his arrival at the club last year.

Giggs: Man Utd Should Never Have Sold These Three Players!

Mourinho has spent close to £300 million (R5 billion) since May 2016, when he was announced as United's latest manager.

Following his side's frustrating 2-2 draw with Burnley on Monday, the Portuguese tactician insisted his team has not spent enough money on players – comments he has since been heavily criticised for.

"One thing is a big club and another thing is a big football team. They are two different things," he said in a post-match press conference, according to The Guardian.

"We are in the second year of trying to rebuild a football team that is not one of the best teams in the world.

"Manchester City buy fullbacks for the price of strikers. When you speak about big football clubs, you are speaking about the history of the club.

"It (£300m) is not enough. And the price for the big clubs, the price for the big clubs is different from the other clubs.

"So the big, historical clubs are normally punished in the market for that history."

United are 12 points behind league leaders Manchester City, who still have a game in hand.
