Jose Mourinho criticises Manchester United summer - Leicester spent more than us

Man Utd transfers

"Of course, we have second or third choice in case he is not confident or some reason doesn't want to take it but he was ready and of course he trained lots of penalties during the World Cup because it's something in a competition like that every player trains a lot and he was vert confident".

"We don't have a penalty taker, it's how we feel and I chose to take it".

Jamie Vardy came off the bench and pulled a goal back in the 92nd minute but United held on for all three points, and with a World Cup under his belt, star midfielder Pogba is targeting more silverware.

The Portuguese boss was keen to bring in a winger last summer, with Croatia's Ivan Perisic known to be the main target, although vice-chairman Ed Woodward failed to finalise a deal. I haven't won the Premier League, I haven't won the Champions League, I haven't won the Euros so there are more to win.

"We knew we were not going to be fit, 100 per cent, but the aim and most important thing was to start well the Premier League and we did that".

The France playmaker then continued to impress as the first half wore on at Old Trafford , leading his team-mates by example. With seven minutes remaining, he flicked the ball past a defender before sending a low left-footed strike into the net.

Perhaps there is growing frustration at the club, so much so that they are no longer prepared to spend money for the sake of it, just because the manager wants to. Mourinho was reportedly involved in bust-ups with Paul Pogba who was eventually dropped from the starting XI.

And although left-back Luke Shaw - one of Mourinho's other whipping boys - was made man-of-the-match for his win-clinching first ever goal for United it was Pogba's drive, determination, influence and leadership that were key to victory. "In the second half I had Andreas Pereira and Fred with a yellow card, Paul was fantastic his contribution was awesome, but the fuel was disappearing". We were in trouble. "I think football is changing and probably football managers should be called head coaches".

When asked if he would make a signing today, Mourinho said: "The information I have is no".

Brazil worldwide Fred, young right-back Diogo Dalot and veteran goalkeeper Lee Grant have all joined. "He made one mistake in 90 minutes, he was very good defensively".

"Preseason was very hard and we needed this fantastic spirit by the players to manage this performance and this result", Mourinho said. The Frenchman, who had been linked with a possible transfer window move to Barcelona, said he remained hungry for more success.
