Manchester United players don't know how to win - Mourinho

Manchester United star Chris Smalling came under fire this season

Manchester United star Chris Smalling came under fire this season

"I had to adapt to the English football but the more I trained the better it got".

The former Chelsea gaffer said: "This year, I had the most hard season of my career".

"I try to keep my position more because you know Paul has the ability to score; the ability to head, to shoot, to dribble - he has everything".

Mourinho was outspoken in decrying a "culture" whereby he felt some United players were reluctant to play through the pain barrier when carrying injuries. It's true that the results weren't as positive as we'd wished, but we reached our goals. All in all, it was a good season.

After finishing 6th in the Premier League last season, Jose Mourinho must sign world class stars to have a strong chance of winning the title next season.

Ander Herrera believes he and Manchester United teammate Paul Pogba work well together on the pitch, and has hailed the France international's qualities. "Sometimes he does some extreme things. He deserves his name", he added.

"The captain of Real Madrid, who raised the cup the other day and is now three times European champion, when I arrived at Real Madrid in 2010, had never played the quarter finals". Personally, he welcomed me. "That's all a player needs".

Andreas Pereira spent last season at La Liga side Granada, yet despite a successful spell with the Spanish side, playing 37 times, he could not stop them from getting relegated under former England and Arsenal defender Tony Adams.

"I had done the injury, I played on and it turned out there was a break".

Beyond June's two-week Confederations Cup, which will pull players away from Germany, Portugal and Chile of the major football nations, this is a summer without a major worldwide tournament, and will give managers far longer to bed in their coaching philosophy.
