Transfer: Real reason Manchester United didn't back Mourinho in market revealed

I've been to the World Cup in Brazil and that was incredible so I want to be in the World Cups and the Euros'.

"It was my first goal and that is all that was important, it doesn't matter how I scored", he said.

The Toffees captured one of United's targets - Colombian defender Yerry Mina from Barcelona - as well as Portugal winger Andre Gomes from the same club and Brazilian winger Bernard who previously played for Shakhtar Donetsk.

Captain for the night Paul Pogba, back at the club as a World Cup victor, scored an early penalty after Daniel Amartey handled a shot from Alexis Sanchez - another stand-out player in this team - after just 77 seconds.

Despite being critical of the club, Scholes is hoping the Red Devils get their campaign off to a flawless start when they face Leicester City at 3am tomorrow.

"He didn't have a pre-season, three days of pre-season", Mourinho said. He's in the group of players who didn't have a pre season, it's as simple as that.

Jose Mourinho selected a youthful squad to take to America after a number of players were missing due to the World Cup.

"One lie repeated 1,000 times is still a lie, but the perception of the people is that it's true but it's still a lie".

Manchester United endured a poor summer this time around. He can also be backed at 6/4 not to be in charge for the club's final game of the season, and 10/1 to be the first sacking and United to finish outside of the top-4.

Chelsea let the Serbian defensive midfielder leave for £35m last summer - and he enjoyed a remarkably consistent debut season at Old Trafford.

Mourinho's relationship with players like Pogba and Martial has come under close scrutiny, as have the manager's mood swings over the club's failure to complete key signings he wanted in the transfer window.

They had the lead after three-minutes at home to Leicester, in front of 75,000 fans on the opening night of the Premier League, but they didn't really strive to build on their advantage.

United need a good result to lift up the mood in camp but Jose knows that Leicester won't be pushovers.

"You have to keep it in mind, but you have to keep working to get better and better because I am still quite young".
