Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has admitted that he is willing to use Conte’s tactics, as they bid to win the Premier League this season.
Ahead of their trip to Stoke City, Mourinho has explained his priorities as United started the season on a fine note, winning their first three fixtures, scoring 10 goals and surrendering none.
In his words, “We try to play the best we can. We know that if you look in a pragmatic way, you see the last winners of the Premier League [Antonio Conte’s Chelsea], they did not play attacking football, they played defensive football and counter-attack football. So, according to the results, that is the way to win the Premier League.
“We try to play according to the qualities of our players. We try to play positive, we try to play good, but we try to win. If one day to win we have to play defensive football, we have to do it.”
