Mourinho denies divisive tactics

Jose Mourinho has denied using a "them and us" mentality with his teams to try and achieve success.

Mourinho has often been criticised for his management style, given that it has seemed to rely upon creating conflict at the clubs he manages.

“It has always been my professional principle to open and close cycles without speaking of negative aspects,” Mourinho told Jornal de Noticias.

“I will try and do that and not mention the Spanish Press.

“Do I look for targets through the media to create a ‘them-and-us’ motivation for my players? No."
