Jose Mourinho rules out Old Trafford exit for Eric Bailly

Shaqiri shoots and scores during the football match against Manchester

Ojo's goal came on a second penalty kick for Liverpool, and the always-outspoken Mourinho had some choice words about the officiating.

José Mourinho faces the possibility of ending Manchester United's pre-season tour to the United States with another heavy defeat as up to 17 players could miss their friendly against Real Madrid in Miami on Wednesday. We start the game with nearly half of the players [who] aren't going to belong to our squad.

"Alexis is the only attacking player we have", said the United manager. "I know the one who are ready for anything, and I know the ones who are not ready".

"It was fantastic to play with this great team, you can see this team has awesome players, I feel good and I'm very happy".

" I gave a list to my club of five names a few months ago and I wait to see if it's possible to have one of these players". The short term need for players to return to training early has to balance with the need to ensure they are recharged and rested after the World Cup.

Mourinho also confirmed after the game against Liverpool that United would be without Nemanja Matic for the opening weeks of the season after the Serbian underwent surgery in Philadelphia.

"I can't see in the moment the need, but there are 12 days to go and a lot of things can happen".

With nine players injured, Mourinho is keen to have the eight players who were granted extended breaks due to their exertions in Russian Federation return to training a week before they were supposed to. He is a team boy, he is a great boy.

United began their pre-season with three straight draws against Club América of Mexico, San Jose Earthquakes and AC Milan, but last night's 4-1 thumping at the hands of bitter rivals Liverpool certainly represents the nadir. With so many senior players missing, the likes of Angel Gomes, Tahith Chong, Demetri Mitchell and James Garner have gained some precious game-time in a first-team environment. "We've played against quality opponents".

Matic picked up the injury at the World Cup in Russian Federation and had undergone surgery in Philadelphia, Mourinho said, though he did not disclose the nature of the problem. Two fantastic goals from Pereira from Shaqiri, but the referees they came by mistake.
