Signings have not improved United, claims Mourinho

  • Man Utd transfer news Leicester star Harry Maguire has been linked with the Red Devils

"It is hard for me to understand, we finish second which I keep saying, that I won eight championships and three Premier Leagues but I keep feeling the second last season was one of my biggest achievements in the game".

Scholes said the club has undoubtedly brought in talented managers, but they still lack the edge when it matters the most.

The 2018/19 English Premier League will kick-off tonight with 20-time English Premier League winners Manchester United facing 2015 Premier League winners Leicester City in the Theatre of Dreams in Manchester.

Mourinho admits the likes of Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and Jesse Lingard "are not really fit" for the Cityclash but with injuries elsewhere, the United manager says "we have needs".

The former Juventus midfielder was among a handful of United players who only returned to pre-season training on Monday, after their countries advanced to the World Cup semi-finals. He worked amazingly well on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Courtney Smith's lawyer: My client has never been contacted by Ohio State
It is unclear whether or not OSU policy requires a school representative to reach out to the alleged victim in a case like this. Leveridge's statement was also apparently a response to accusations against her client, attacking Courtney Smith's credibility.

"If we don't make our team better it will be a hard season for us", Mourinho warned earlier this week, so far to no avail ahead of Thursday's transfer deadline. He's one of the players that I have to speak to see how physically and mentally he feels.

If he remains at Old Trafford beyond the 31 August European transfer deadline how do the club, and Mourinho, manage the World Cup-winning star?

"In pre-season it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, it looked like I was saying something insane", he added.

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. He's in the group of players who didn't have a pre season, it's as simple as that. He's a midfield player that technically is very good. Both the teams will be looking to start their Premier League campaign with a victory as they face off today in the inaugural match.

"I repeat, pre-season is hard when you don't have your players to work with".
