Paul Pogba captains Manchester United in Premier League opener against Leicester City

Paul Pogba captains Manchester United in Premier League opener against Leicester City

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. Following a strong World Cup, the Red Devils will lean on Paul Pogba to display his incredible talent.

Martin Fisher: Jose Mourinho rarely smiled last season and his expression hasn't changed after a summer of frustration. Along with the new signings, nearly 9 players have left the club with key player Riyadh Mahrez joining reigning champions Manchester City, Robert Huth being released and record signing Ahmed Musa leaving for Al-Nassr to name a few.

Brazil global Fred, highly-rated but raw full-back Diogo Dalot and third-choice goalkeeper Lee Grant all arrived at United by early July, but nobody followed despite Mourinho's explicit desire to bring in two more players.

The Daily Telegraph adds that United's board would only sanction the signing of a world-class defender such as Varane, but refused to bring in a "lesser" player, despite Mourinho's demands.

Training: City step up ahead of league opener
Scudamore, who will end a 19-year tenure in December , added: "I'd like someone to get a little bit closer to Manchester City ". They argued that they have to sell players for financial reasons if they fail to qualify for Europa or Champions League.


Jose Mourinho is "desperate" for Manchester United to get off to a winning start in the Premier League curtain-raiser on Friday night, despite bemoaning a lack of preparation time.

Former Manchester United striker Owen ruled out the Red Devils launching a sustained challenge in the Premier League this season. He didn't have nine days of pre-season where no training, no football, absolutely nothing.

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

Martial angered Mourinho during pre-season. "There is not a story".

Playing Bellerive 'semi-blind' no problem for Rose
Woods has partnered a variety of players over the years, including Furyk four times at the 2006 Ryder Cup in Ireland. Woods, as a vice captain, would recuse himself from any discussions about his viability as a player, Furyk said.


Jose Mourinho enters his third season in charge of United looking to capture the league title. The style of play under Mourinho has not been easy to watch but he'll always say I don't care what style but we finished second in the league. "It is a lie, repeated 1,000 times".

"I like my players and my group".

Schmeichel was called into action again 10 minutes into the second half, going low and to his left to keep out a Matteo Darmian line drive from distance as both teams looked to up the tempo of the match after the break.

However, Spurs haven't sold any of them, and they may now hope that European clubs come in with bids in the coming weeks, given that the market closes around Europe on August 31.
