Jose Mourinho takes a swipe at United’s critics

Club bosses overruled a number of Mourinho’s transfer suggestions

Club bosses overruled a number of Mourinho’s transfer suggestions

Sir Alex Ferguson hates him because he was the reason behind Pogba's departure to Juventus in 2012.

"Is hard for me to understand, to feel, to believe we finish second".

Vardy did grab a late goal, heading in at the far post after Ricardo's cross had rebounded off the post, but it turned out to be a consolation as the Reds kicked off the new campaign with the three points.

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

He continued: 'Well, that's my style of taking penalties. "I hope so. Will it entertain the fans? No".

"I focus on just what we have, and we go with everything we have to the first match".

Their season will not be defined by losing at Old Trafford in August, but there was enough here to suggest they should be aiming to be best of the rest behind the top six of United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal.

Mourinho is desperate for a centre-back with Harry Maguire still believed be keen to switch Leicester for the Red Devils, just a year after his £17m move from Hull City.

United have only won three trophies since, the Europa League, Fa Cup, League Cup.

Pogba played a key role for France as Didier Deschamps' men triumphed in Russian Federation last month, though his participation in the latter stages of the tournament meant he was late in joining up with his club colleagues.

"They finished second which was great, but not winning anything at Man United is a major disappointment".

Chief football writer Daniel Taylor writes: "United's conclusion was that in most cases Mourinho had targeted defenders who were no better than those they already had".

I also like living in London, it is an unbelievable city, and my family is well adapted.

The move was created to ease disruption in the first few weeks of the campaign after a number of high-profile players, including Alexis Sanchez, Philippe Coutinho and Virgil van Dijk, missed matches at the start of last season due to transfer speculation.

The title-winning team has all but broken up and in their place are players like 21-year-old James Maddison, signed for £20 million from Norwich in the summer.
