There is no new generation of managers, Mourinho told the Sunday Times. What it is, is people who got some idea, some philosophy, and want to create something like, 'we build very well from the back, we have a very good ball possession, we don't play counter-attack'.
We have to buy a striker because we want to have three strikers of a good level, Mourinho told The Times. We do not want to have just one [transfer target]. Then you lose a good position on the negotiation table.
It will be difficult to find players to go straight into the team, Mourinho said. Because it's not easy to find a better striker than Diego (Costa), a better keeper than (Thibaut) Courtois, a better midfield player than (Nemanja) Matic or (Cesc) Fabregas.
