Jose Mourinho believes his Manchester United players will have few problems understanding the principles he wants to instill during pre-season.
Some of Mourinho’s new players returned to training this week, though many of United’s internationals remain on holiday following their participation at Euro 2016 and Copa America.
The new manager accepts he has little time to get his message across this summer but the Portuguese coach plans to keep things simple for his players in the short-term.
That approach contrasts sharply with Louis van Gaal, who regularly spoke of training the brains of his players as he attempted to instill his philosophy.
Mourinho will try a different method as he looks to prepare United for their Premier League season opener at Bournemouth on August 15.
“The reality is that I will have to try to shorten some of the process,” he told MUTV. “But the process will obviously take weeks and weeks and weeks, sometimes years and years, as we always have the chance to improve.
“I am going to try in these weeks, when we’ll be all together, to give the team the principles – I don’t say the ‘dynamic’ because the dynamic needs more time. And my principles are quite objective and I understand that, for the players, it will not be a drama for them to understand and to try to give me what I want.”
