I have players i do not love: Mourinho

Football News: Manchester United gaffer said that the Red Devils must improve mentally as they are planning to sign some new players to bridge the gap.

Jose Mourinho does not trust his players.

The Special one avouches that as a manager he does not love or trust few Manchester United players and he thinks his players need to improve their mentality to reach the level of EPL champions Manchester City.

Today Manchester United will tackle West Ham, right now they are 20 points adrift to their city neighbors Manchester City.

This season Manchester United defeated all the top six of EPL, but surprisingly they bite the dust by 1-0 goals against Brighton and Hove Albion.

Mourinho was really furious on his player’s likes of Anthony Martial, and Marcos Rashford, who have started the match for Manchester United in place of Lukaku and Sanchez ahead of the F.A Cup final against the Blues.

The special one 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.

"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."

"Of course we can keep [those players]. Unless there is a perfect squad, where you buy one goalkeeper you don't like, you buy another one; you buy a central defender you don't like, you buy another one. Unless you can do that, and you go in the direction of the perfect squad, you have to keep players you don't love.

"When I say love, I say it
footballistically – players you don't totally believe have the level of the squad but you have to keep. If you go to the Premier League managers, I don't say every one, but I say the majority of them will tell you the same. In my squad, I have some players where I would like to have better than what I have. That's basic."
