Yet the fall-out from a disappointing transfer window that saw United fail to sign the central defender Mourinho was demanding was still the subject of debate as he was asked about the club's lack of summer spending.

"It is hard for me to understand, we finish second which I keep saying, that I won eight championships and three Premier Leagues but I keep feeling the second last season was one of my biggest achievements in the game".

Martin Fisher: Jose Mourinho rarely smiled last season and his expression hasn't changed after a summer of frustration.

"That's football managment. I think football is changning and managers should be called head coaches. I think we are more the head coach than the manager", he said.

"In football you need time to work and players on the pitch to work and we didn't have until now".

Indeed, there isn't a lot for Man United supporters to be optimistic about right now, as they're set to play Leicester City in the Premier Leaguein the opening day and get set in a season which some have even suggested that'll struggle to achieve top-four in, let alone win the league title. Or you believe in the pundits and go with what they say. They 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.

'Forget the name, the history, the shirt, every match is hard'.

Jose Mourinho checks his notes on the sideline during last night's match against Leicester City at Old Trafford.

United's squad is stretched through injuries and fitness issues with returning World Cup stars heading into their Premier League opener.

'Paul was fantastic. His contribution was unbelievable.

"Pogba was a monster, we thought maximum 60 minutes but he managed the 80".

Pogba overruled Alexis Sanchez when United were awarded an early penalty despite the protestations of his teammate.

Pushed on whether there would be any ins or outs on Thursday, Mourinho added: "The information I have is no (nothing will happen)". 'The thinking is he is a very good penalty taker and likes the responsibility of it. "Everyone is hungry for that, that is the trophy we want".

After a £52m deal was struck with Shakhtar Donetsk before the World Cup, the Brazilian midfielder agreed to join Man United. Maybe in the next game I can give to Alexis. It's not a problem, it's the win that is most important'.

Manchester United boss Mourinho said: "Mr Scudamore must be happy, it's a good way to start the Premier League".
