Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has rejected claims that he is "bullying" Bastian Schweinsteiger.
The Portuguese was accused by Slovenia FifPro member Dejan Stefanovic who asked for the manager to be jailed for three years in an interview with the BBC.
But the United boss says it's perfectly normal to take certain decisions when there are too many players in the squad.
"What is happening is what is happening in every club in the world," Mourinho is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.
"Which is that the manager decides his squad and chooses a certain number of players to face the season, and that's it.
"I normally like to work with 20 players plus the three goalkeepers, which is what I do for 15 years.
"But we have so many players, so many competitions, especially the Europa League, which changes the profile of the season a lot.
"You have the big risk of travelling a lot, playing Premier League. So I made the decision to play with 23 players and two goalkeepers, which is a lot. I had to make my decisions, it's simple."
