Mourinho rails against negative Manchester United coverage

Mourinho rails against negative Manchester United coverage”

"I'm not confident and the market closes today so it is time, at least for me, to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed, so I will have to focus on the players I have".

For the first time in over 20 years, the Gunners will play under a manager other than Arsene Wenger with Unai Emery taking over in North London.

Shearer added: "The spine of their side, with David de Gea, Eric Bailly, Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic, Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku is particularly strong, even before you get on to players like Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial".

Instead, the Portuguese's mood has been further soured by seeing another fierce rival Liverpool steal a march with a £170-million (RM890 million) splurge on new signings.

"We have a very good squad, with very good players, and it is very hard to add players to that".

It is a move that may yet happen, but Spurs are insisting on finding a replacement before selling. Boateng has turned down the advances of the Red Devils as he is eager to remain at Bayern Munich.

The agent of Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld is ready to fly to Manchester this afternoon.

Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool open their season at home at Anfield against West Ham United early on Monday morning (NZ time).

"You don't really know the team, you don't really know the players, you don't know how they're going to perform from one week to the next". Tottenham, apparently, wasn't out in the market very much to provide them with much material.

Unai Emery has enjoyed the luxury of having most of his squad available for pre-season with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette forming a fearsome front four.

"When I listen, when I read - not much but sometimes I do - it is hard to believe that we finished second because you [the media] are capable of making people who finished second look like they were relegated and capable of making people who win nothing and finish below us look like serial winners". It is hard for me to understand we finish second.

The former England midfielder pointed to a gulf in class - and playing styles - with Pep Guardiola's free-flowing Manchester City, who won the title 19 points ahead of their neighbours last season.
