Tony Mowbray: Looking to build, not dismantle

His move to reassure fans comes amid reports Championship rivals Nottingham Forest have made a fresh bid to sign Grant Leadbitter from the Riverside outfit.

But Mowbray says the club are trying to put a team together to compete in the division.

The Middlesbrough boss told the Evening Gazette: "I don't think our supporters should be concerned about any of our best players leaving.

Supportive chairman

"The chairman is very supportive about the fact that we are trying to build a team to get out of this league.

"Why would you sell your best players to your potential rivals? I don't think that's something we should be concerning ourselves about.

"We're trying to build a team not dismantle one or chase money.

"We're trying to put together a team that can be competitive at the top end of the table."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)
