Man Utd transfer news Merson cannot understand why Mourinho has not been able to sign a defender

Less than two minutes into the Red Devils' opening game of the new Premier League season, Jose Mourinho's side were awarded a spot kick after Daniel Amartey handled inside the box.

"I think football is changing and probably football managers should be called head coaches. There is something going on behind the scenes and I don't think Woodward is helping Mourinho as much as we really think".

"Of course, it will be a hard season for everybody".

United fans, and commentators will be watching the Frenchman's performance closely this evening as the 2018-19 Premier League season gets under way at Old Trafford. They [Leicester] spent more money than us, so in the Premier League we must get used to teams with players of the same quality that we have. I know it's a great cup, it will stay in my mind, but I want to win all the trophies.

At the pre-match press conference ahead of the Leicester clash Mourinho hit back at claims of unrest at Old Trafford, Sky Sports reports. Every team is a good team, forget the name, forget the history, forget the shirt.

"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". Pogba responded with a strong all-round performance, as well as scoring the opening goal after what I have to say was a very odd run-up for his penalty. "We thought a maximum 60 minutes but he managed 80".

As ESPN's Rob Dawson says: "Mourinho and Pogba's frosty relationship is a puzzle Manchester United must solve".

Such comments emerged again earlier this summer after a picture of the 23-year-old topless while on holiday in Dubai did the rounds on social media.

"[Kasper] Schmeichel is very good on pens but no chance".

Pogba, who carried over his fine World Cup winning form into the first game and produced a complete performance as skipper, shook hands with the subs after being replaced for Fellaini, and though Martial extended his hand to his compatriot - his frustration at not coming on was clear.

Harry Maguire, Toby Alderweireld, Jerome Boateng, Yerry Mina, Diego Godin and Raphael Varane were all linked, but no deals materialised in the window.

And speaking about his goal - his first in 134 games for Southampton and United since his first-team debut aged 16 in January 2012 - Shaw told United's official website: "Honestly I can't describe it, in front of the Stretford End, it's the best feeling I've had".
