Mason: Manchester United have a squad of 25 top internationals

Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Ryan Mason isn’t buying into Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho’s complaints about a lack of transfer activity this summer, by claiming that the Portuguese coach already has a strong enough squad.

The Red Devils coach has cut a sullen figure throughout pre-season with the former Chelsea boss unable to hide his dissatisfaction with Brazil international midfielder Fred being his sides only high profile signing.

Mourinho guided Manchester United to their best Premier League finish since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013, but the 55-year-old coach has insisted that he wants to sign two more players before the end of the transfer window.

However, former Spurs man Mason doesn’t seem to understand Mourinho’s unhappiness with his current squad, believing that United already have a squad packed with top internationals.

“He does not seem happy with his squad, which is strange as it contains 25 top international players,” Mason told Sky Sports News.

“Jose should just be foccusing on the squad of players he has. And if they can just add a few more additions to that squad, then great.

“They finished as runners-up last season and so he should be looking to kick on and go one better this season.”
