Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has sent another transfer message to vice-executive chairman Ed Woodward as he hinted that the Red Devils need more transfers to compete in Europe.
United came from 1-0 down in the second half to make a surprise 2-1 win at Juventus on Wednesday night at Allianz Stadium.
Mourinho, who spent over £350m since taking over in 2016, was left frustrated with United for refusing to sign a centre-back during the summer transfer window.
“Of course, they are strong, of course, they have phenomenal players,” Mourinho said to BT Sport.
“Of course Cristiano can make that goal and the player that made that beautiful pass was a central defender [Leonardo Bonucci].”
“It was a high-quality pass from a central defender so they have power and they have quality all over the park, and they have [an] amazing bench to make fantastic changes all the time.”
“A couple of our boys, they told in the interview after the game at home that they were a little bit [inferior] and I got this.”
“I worked around that because we had to come and not feel inferior.”
“Of course they have a different potential than us, everybody knows their ambitions are different to ours.”
“They were in a very comfortable situation. We were in a situation where we thought we needed to go to the last second of the last match and the situation was different.”
“But the boys, they started the game really, really well with good control of the game. They had one opportunity in the first half but everything was under control.”
