    Jose Mourinho wants more time, ‘blames issues on Van Gaal, Moyes’

    Jose Mourinho believes he needs at least two transfer windows to ‘return Manchester United’s squad to a level expected of the club’.

    According to the Daily Record, the manager has been left ‘concerned’ by the current standard of his players.

    Duncan Castles writes that the Portuguese finds the squad he has inherited from Louis van Gaal ‘unfit for purpose’, with Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor David Moyes also apportioned some of the blame.

    Mourinho has questioned how the players those two have signed cannot […]

    Giggs had a season as a player-coach under Moyes, including a spell as caretaker manager after the Scot’s dismissal in 2014, then […]

    The Scot, now Sunderland manager, insists that he was not given a fair crack of the whip at Old Trafford, but maintains that his spell at the club made him better.

    David Moyes believes he was harshly treated by former club Manchester United as he looks ahead to his tenure with Sunderland.
