"I haven't watched the manager's media stuff, I never do", he added.
Jose Mourinho promised a squad overhaul this summer, but has only managed to sign three players out of which two might only end up being squad names, used only when required.
"This is not our team, not our squad". "We are here just to survive and to have some not very ugly results".
