EPL 2018/19: Manchester United vs Leicester City

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho did not expect to add to his squad before the close of the English Premier League transfer window yesterday on an unusually quiet deadline day for English clubs.

The Chile worldwide, 29, said he feels more comfortable at United now following a full preseason with the club and hopes to combine more effectively with teammates Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku this term, beginning with the season-opening match against Leicester City on Friday.

"I don't know what Ed Woodward and Mourinho have been doing, but I am sorry, this is not the Man United I know of recent years, sitting on their hands, watching other player and other clubs spend money". 'He's a typical Brazilian player with a very rich luggage of technical skill and beauty.

It is for these reasons that Mourinho was understandably frustrated by the club not bringing in any new central defenders during the summer transfer window. "He's a player to really enjoy, if he adapts as soon as possible".

That works out at around £490,000 per week for Sanchez, provided he plays regularly, and it is why Mino Raiola, Pogba's agent, was happily linking the French midfielder to Barcelona this summer. That's the only thing I can promise, work hard.

Asked why the club have struggled to recruit players this summer, Pochettino replied: "The market was insane ". Maybe we have different principles.

Pogba, 25, signed for United for a then-world record fee of £89.3 million in 2016 and helped the club in the Europa League in his first season back at the club. "In general, I like to always be in contact with the ball".

"I have my players and I like my players", Mourinho said. "I have the same players, I have the same team". Go get your team right, get your tactics right, go get your team personnel right, oh and by the way, manage and encourage and get your players playing for you. One third of my squad arrived two or three days ago, so it's not easy. I'd prefer to look to the bench and to have them rather than to have 16-year-old boys without experience and without the power to be Premier League player directly.

"If he goes the opposite way and things don't go well and he keeps moaning and groaning, I would be disappointed if they didn't just pull the rug from under his feet and say, "this isn't looking good, we've had enough of you, get out of here".

"But he's got great experience, he's been at top clubs, he's been in hard positions before, he's in a hard position now I think, but he needs to try to find a way to get out of it". Click to find out more.
