Speaking ahead of Sunday’s Community Shield clash with Leicester, Mourinho said he expects to make one more “big signing” and also made it clear Bastian Schweinsteiger, The former Germany Captain and Legend is not part of his plans ahead of the new season.Mourinho said his decision to exclude Bastian Schweinsteiger from his plans was a simple matter of squad size.
“The manager decides his squad and chooses a certain number of players to face the season, and that’s it. I normally like to work with 20 players plus the three goalkeepers, which is what I do for 15 years,” he said.
“But we have so many players, so many competitions, especially the Europa League, which changes the profile of the season a lot. You have the big risk of travelling a lot, playing Premier League.
“So I made the decision to play with 23 players and two goalkeepers, which is a lot. I had to make my decisions, it’s simple.”
