Mourinho: If There Is No League Cup, Maybe English Club More Fresh
Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, criticized the holding of the English League Cup.
The top clubs have just played the third round match of the English League Cup 2017-2018 on Tuesday and Wednesday (19-20 / 9/2017).
Most of them, including Manchester United, stepped into the last 16.
However, this English League Cup title earned a slant response from Mourinho.
The 54-year-old said the tournament would only hurt British clubs in European club competitions.
“If you ask me, ‘Will the England team survive in Europe or even get better without this competition?’ Maybe, “Mourinho told the BBC.
“Maybe the English teams will be more fresh to face the European competition,” he said.
In the third round of the English League Cup, Man United won 4-1 victory over Burton Albion at Old Trafford Stadium on Wednesday (20/09/2017) or Thursday morning GMT.
In the last 16, Man United will travel to the Liberty Stadium challenging Swansea City on Tuesday (25/10/2017) or Wednesday morning GMT.
