Paul Pogba skippers Manchester United on opening night

Paul Pogba skippers Manchester United on opening night

Paul Pogba, Ashley Young, Fellaini and Jesse Lingard may yet be involved against Leicester tonight.

"He's more than ready but you can not have the players who arrived only last Monday after the World Cup semi-finals or final and three weeks' holiday".

Fans have been disappointed in the owner's apparent refusal to seriously back their manager as Mourinho had made it clear how many players he wanted to bring in.

The youngster has only three Leicester goals to his name since signing past year, and a goal could boost the confidence of the mercurial attacker. But Liverpool did its business early in splashing more than 170 million pounds (US$220 million) on Brazil goalkeeper Alisson Becker and midfielders Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri.

'Alexis Sánchez's contract - £391,000 a week with an extra £75,000 for every game he plays and an annual £1.1m signing-on fee - is another indication of how far United are willing to go when a category-A player is available.'
For example, Alexis Sanchez had a good pre-season with lots of matches and lots of minutes.

"It is hard for me to understand, to feel, to believe we finish second - which I keep saying, and it is sometimes hard to believe".

"You try to make a case and there is no case in it".

That will hardly have endeared Martial, who was left out of the weekend friendly against Bayern Munich, to Mourinho, although the manager insisted that omission was not a punishment. For nine days he didn't train.

The former Chelsea boss has clearly become very frustrated with Ed Woodward's inability to deliver signings.

But Mourinho, entering his third season in charge at Old Trafford, claimed, in typically confrontational fashion, that there are no problems in his squad or in his commitment to the club.

"The information I have is no", said Mourinho when asked if he would be adding to his squad. "We have a very good squad, with very good players and it is very hard to add players to that", he said.

"I like my players and my group".

"I expect a better United than last season".

"I know the words you want me to say or not to say but words don't come easy".
