Two days before the Community Shield clash between FA Cup holders Manchester United and Premier League champions Leicester City, Jose Mourinho has hit out at "not ethical" Arsene Wenger and Jurgen Klopp.
The new Red Devils boss wasn't happy on Friday (today) as he said in his press conference that his colleagues (the Liverpool boss Klopp and Arsenal manager Wenger) were "not ethical" following their comments about United’s pursuit of Juventus midfield ace Paul Pogba - who is sealing a move to Old Trafford that would cost £100m.
"I only speak about us. I heard already two of my colleagues from other clubs speaking about us. I do not like that. It is not ethical," the Portuguese said.
"There are things that when I do them are not ethical and when others do so everything is normal. I do not speak about the others. They can do what they want. Our market was good. We made decisions, decided to bring four players not ten, that are Manchester United level.
"Four [players] that we think can really improve the squad and not just be one more. This is the profile of our market. A young defender (Eric Bailly) that needs time to be a top one but who has top potential.
"A creative player (Henrikh Mkhitaryan) that we know the quality, a super striker (Zlatan Ibrahimovic), and we are going to get a very good midfielder (Pogba). 'We try for balance. I am happy with my squad. I am happy with the effort of the club. The others it is their problem."
Comments made by Wenger and Klopp which Mourinho has reacted to;
Arsene Wenger: "It is completely crazy if you cannot afford to pay it. If you can afford to pay it you can justify it.It is completely crazy if you compare it to normal life. That is for sure. Football has become a worldwide competition and that is why clubs can afford to do it. Does it make sense in the way the player can give you that investment back? Nobody ever could calculate"
