Mourinho also addressed the final few days of the transfer window and how he intends to balance his Spurs squad, who have added Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon, among others this summer. Both players were linked with United.

"My job is not to keep them happy. My job is to do the best for the club and to get the best possible results," Mourinho said.

"But it is certain that I agree that it's impossible to keep everybody happy when you have so many players because every weekend, every match, some players will not be playing and that's not good for them especially when they are good players.

"But at the same time, we are a big club, we want to be bigger, we want to play in all the competitions, we have six matches in Europa League group phase playing on a Thursday and we are for sure to get lots of matches at Sunday at 12 o'clock or Sunday 3pm."
