I'd prefer to look to the bench and to have them rather than to have 16-year-old boys without experience and without the power to be Premier League player directly.

"I think Manchester United are a little bit desperate at this present moment which is not like Manchester United and certainly not like Mourinho". "I hope I can work with him again someday". "I will have to focus on the players I have and, in relation to this first couple of matches - maybe three matches because after Spurs there is [the worldwide break] and a couple of weeks to recover people and to prepare people - it is better to focus on the players that are available for the first match".
