Jose Mourinho: I'm now a coach, not a manager

Man Utd transfer news Where Paul Pogba wants to play revealed by French journalist

Mourinho admitted he may have to get used to not getting his own way in the modern world having suggested last weekend United would face a hard season if they did not bolster their squad.

However, a move did not materialise and Mourinho must now work with the same central defensive setup as he did last season. That's the way I think football is going.

Shaw forced a save from Kasper Schmeichel just past the 40-minute mark, settling a pass from Juan Mata after some nice build-up play from United before firing right at the Leicester keeper. That being said, the majority of pundits thought David de Gea should fill the vacancy, but alas Mourinho favored more of a "position player" in the captain's role. The opaque reference to "what's going on" may also be a source of concern for United fans desperate to see him remain and flourish at the club for a long time. He made one mistake in 90 minutes, he was very good defensively. "I think we are more the head coach than the manager", he said.

"That's football, that's football management, I think football is changing and probably football managers should be called head coaches".

"I had only two options, Scott [McTominay] or Paul, but if I play Scott I play two two kids and a new player, so I asked Paul and he put himself available for the team and he was very, very good for us".

"I know it's a great cup, it will stay in my mind, but I want to win all the trophies".

But the transfer window slammed shut and Martial was still a United player.

Pogba spoke after the 2-1 win over the Foxes, which saw Luke Shaw grab his first senior goal, pointing out that wants more silverware with his club.

He is the best left-back at the club when he is fit and flying so I am glad he has got his goal, because it should take a bit of pressure off him. A lot of coaches forget that player development is part of the job description, but not Mou.

Bailly can be a bit rash and possibly needs a voice in his ear as he is about to dive into a tackle to say "stand up, stand up" but he got away with it against Leicester and is clearly a good defender. Or you believe in the pundits and go with what they say.

"It was tough for Harry Maguire, he gave his best and had a good game". I am looking forward to seeing how their season progresses from here.
