"What I find extraordinary about Mourinho is his audacity. To even suggest a lack of purchasing power has somehow limited his ability to be more successful is a stretch even for him. Mourinho has spent the best part of £300m and has arguably the best squad in the league. Mourinho seems to know everything about money but nothing of Manchester United's history. United have a legacy of producing homegrown talent. As for Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford, they both came gift-wrapped for Mourinho and there is more where that came from if he's prepared to look. There is no doubt Mourinho can take great players and make them into a great team. But not since his days at Porto has he created a team out of nothing. I wonder, is the great man losing his touch?"
