Mourinho admits some Manchester United players are not “good enough”

Jose Mourinho has never been someone to hold back and in his latest press conference, the Portuguese manager admitted that he does not trust the ability of some of his players. He also admitted that Manchester United need to invest more to reach the level of rivals Manchester City.

According to the former Real Madrid boss, United need much more quality to make the cut among the elites of world football. Speaking ahead of his side’s trip to West Ham United, Mourinho said,” How many points separate us from Manchester City? Not two, three or four – a lot of points. I think we need both things that you mentioned [more quality or mentality to bridge the gap in the Premier League]. Some of the people we have, they have to be more consistent in their performance, and we need more quality.”

The 55-year-old did not mention players by name, but it was pretty obvious who he was referring to. Following their 1-0 shock defeat to Brighton and Hove Albion, he launched a scathing attack on the likes of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford, who failed to step up in the game after Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku were rested.

Mourinho also mentioned that a lot of work needs to be done on the squad’s mentality, while new players also need to be bought to bridge the gap. The Red Devils are currently placed second in the league, having defeated all teams from the top 6 but have also lost to all 3 newly-promoted teams.

“How many points separate us from Manchester City? Not two, three or four – a lot of points,” Mourinho told reporters.

He added, “I think we need both things that you mentioned [more quality or mentality to bridge the gap in the Premier League]. Some of the people we have, they have to be more consistent in their performance, and we need more quality. I trust some [players] more than others that can bridge that gap. That’s normal. I know the players. I worked with the players for a couple of years. I know them better than anyone. And of course, some of the players I am totally convinced are going to make it. Some others I have good hopes that they are going to make it and some others I don’t believe they are going to make it.”
