This was a classic case of Mourinho getting his excuses in ahead of a season that is likely to be his last as United manager unless his attitude on and off the pitch changes to the point where the club feel they can back him once again.

"I would like to have two more players", Mourinho said in characteristically sour fashion.

United head for the humidity and tropical storms of Miami with dark clouds hovering over them and a manager whose mood flicks between exasperated and foreboding.

Mourinho vented his frustrations after his charges were thumped 4-1 by Liverpool in the International Champions Cup in America.

To add to their woes, the gaffer has revealed that he faces a lengthy injury list to add to his missing big-name players recuperating from a taxing World Cup campaign.

Matic, Sergio Romero, Smalling and Shaw missed the defeat to Liverpool through injury, while Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku, Victor Lindelof, Marcos Rojo, Marouane Fellaini, Ashley Young, Phil Jones, Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford have yet to return to training following the World Cup.

With just 11 days to the close of the transfer window, Mourinho has expressed great concern, claiming that he submitted a list of 5 summer signings to the Club, and that inly one among the five has been recruited.

Though, it is reported that Mourinho wanted to sign five players for the new Premier League season.

"I know he knows how to take the pressure, being where he's been". It gets later and later, the season seem to get earlier and earlier and it's really a challenge for everyone. The midfielder played in six of Les Bleus' seven matches in Russian Federation.

Mourinho has to be careful.

They have all the money in the world, why not spend it, right? He cannot put too much pressure on, particularly as he admitted last week that if players are rushed back after an intense worldwide tournament, they can suffer burnout later in the season.

Mourinho meanwhile praised the contribution of senior players such as Sanchez, Juan Mata, Ander Herrera and Eric Bailly. The aforementioned game versus Real Madrid then Bayern Munich on Saturday. I think [it] is possible I am going to have one.

"I nearly think he's asking to be sacked".

Throughout the summer tour, Mourinho's press conferences have been incredibly negative and there can't be many pundits backing them to beat Man City to the title.

"We are not playing here to improve the team, the dynamic or our routines".

"If he can't be assured first-team football, he might need to move on".

It has also benefited versatile defender Timothy Fosu-Mensah, who has returned to Old Trafford from a loan spell with Crystal Palace. "The joy I had was to receive a message when he left Real Madrid".

"It has been good", said Fosu-Mensah, when asked about the tour.
