Mourinho rails against negative Manchester United coverage

  • Tottenham Hotspur finished third last season to qualify for the Champions League but Mauricio Pochettino said that is not enough

Manchester United will be starting the new Premier League season on Friday night, against Leicester City at Old Trafford.

After a record-breaking and dominant season in the most hard league in the world, Manchester City is riding high. In this moment, words are not important. The interesting thing in this report is that it seems as if the signings of Fred and Lee Grant, as well as Marouane Fellaini's new contract and the January arrival of Alexis Sanchez, were all Mourinho approved.

Sources have told ESPN FC the 55-year-old wanted a centre-back and a right winger but nothing materialised in the final weeks of the window.

Added to that is the fact that they have been able to keep ahold of 18-year-old wonderkid Ryan Sessegnon - who scored 15 Championship goals last season - and Fulham look like a side more than capable of competing in the top half of the division. "However, individually the players can improve", Guardiola said during the Sky Sports Premier League launch. "I like to work with my players".

"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".

"When you repeat 1,000 times that my relationship with my players is not good, it's a lie - and repeated 1,000 times it is still a lie".

Obviously turning the loan deal of Aleksandar Mitrovic into a permanent signing is a big plus given he already has experience of English football and indeed the Premier League, but also signing Alfie Mawson from Swansea, and former Chelsea man Andre Schurrle, are very eyecatching transfers. To finish 11th last season after losing their first seven games was a terrific achievement, and I fancy they'll improve on that this campaign. "Next season, after pre-season, after being comfortable and adapted, he's going to be great for us".

Spurs' Premier League campaign begins with a trip to Newcastle on Saturday. Jamie Vardy did reunite with the team early as did Harry Maguire and all the players who served their national teams.

In the end, though, Mourinho was left to settle with his current squad and the same can be said for his designs for the United midfield.

Cameron Borthwick-Jackson was loaned to Scunthorpe, Timothy Fosu-Mensah will spend the season at Fulham after joining them on deadline day, while Axel Tuanzebe will play for Aston Villa and Joel Pereira for Vitoria Setubal.

"He's in the group of players who didn't have a preseason, it's as simple as that".

But he says Anthony Martial is back at square one after missing nine days of pre-season training because of the birth of his second child.
