"They're the ones with the power these days - unfortunately".

It lead the Portuguese to vent his feelings after the final whistle at Old Trafford and reiterate his warning for the new season. "I had my plans for many months and I find myself with the market closed in a situation I did not think I would be in".

"A match where I needed six changes, not three". I want to progress and get better again and I want to win more trophies. "I don't think I was playing as well as I could with my attacking capabilities last season, and that's what I'm known for".

"When we have everybody with you, everybody next to you know they want to fight for you, obviously it's going to be easier, you know?" Or you believe in the pundits and go with what they say.

"There are ways to improve your team: one way is to spend a lot of money and to bring in lots of important players, another way is to work and that's the way we have to do it", he added.

"Even if I forget the goal, it was a complete performance", said Mourinho of the left-back's display. "Forget the name, the history, the shirt, every match is hard".

Jose Mourinho showed his disappointment over the club's transfer activity this summer again as he said he should be described as Manchester United's "head coach" rather than manager.

Bharat: Salman Khan kickstarts the second schedule of the film in Malta
Written by Niren Bhatt, "Loveratri" is directed by Abhiraj Minawala who will also be making his directorial debut with the film. Salman will be sporting five different looks in the film wherein a crucial part will showcase the actor in his late 20s.

For a moment it looked like Schmeichel would just get his hand behind the ball to deny the French national, but there was no stopping Pogba's stunning shot.With the Reds up by 1, the scoreline for the remainder of the half did not reflect the performance. Alexis Sanchez was desperate to take the spot-kick but captain Paul Pogba eventually slotted away in the third minute after the longest run up in history. "We thought maximum (he could play) 60 minutes, but he managed 80".

This could hint that Shaw will play a big part in this season, and if the backing from his once worst enemy continues, then who's to say he won't have a massive season?

"I always give my best for the fans, for the team mates. and for the people that trust me".

"[Paul] was very good".

The flashy midfielder, who had two stars carved into his hair to denote Les Bleus' two World Cup triumphs, demanded the ball at every opportunity and breezed past Leicester players easily.

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