“You [journalists] made an incredible story out of 15 minutes of an open training session. What happened the other day happens on many days. Conversations with players, I have many, many, many, many times. Loud instructions happen every day – coaching is about that.
“But you make stories out of it so I am happy that the rules are only 15 minutes once a month and with situations like that it is not going to change. There is no chance I am going to open the training session and let you watch a training session.
“Manchester United is bigger than anyone and I have to defend that,” Mourinho stated.
