Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has responded to his title rivals’ summer activity, taking aim at Liverpool by claiming they’re trying to buy the title.
The Portuguese manager himself has been criticised for throwing money at his problems in the past but he decided to focus on the club’s rivals instead.
Mourinho’s reputation as a short term manager certainly doesn’t help him but his successes with Porto and Inter Milan cannot be ignored.
It wasn’t until he inherited the riches of Chelsea where he spent big and without a worry as he was allowed to do so.
Either way, it’s unlikely Jurgen Klopp will take kindly to the former Real Madrid boss’ comments but the rest of the managers should be pleased.
According to Manchester Evening News, Jose said: “I think Liverpool are trying to buy the title, but when I say buying I mean ‘buying’ with amazing investment.
“Chelsea has a fantastic squad, City have a fantastic squad too. And Tottenham made an incredible investment too by keeping their players.
“That’s the best investment they could make because they could be having to spend £200million if they lose Harry Kane and Eriksen. The biggest investment was keeping their players.
“Arsenal will be better too, despite losing their first match. I think it’s going to be a very hard season.”
Klopp himself has admitted he changed his mind about being conservative with the money the club has and it’s arguably allowed him to invest in Liverpool’s weaknesses for once.
With the riches at the disposal of most of the Premier League managers it won’t be long until it becomes a case of who is capable of getting the most out of their players rather than who buys best.
Talented players will fill all of the clubs up so there certainly won’t be a lacking in that area.
