Jose Mourinho Second with Manchester United among my biggest achievements

  • Man Utd transfer news Tottenham Toby Alderweireld

The Portuguese coach said over the weekend he expected a "difficult" season if no-one else came in but seemed to backtrack ahead of Friday night's Premier League opener against Leicester - and went on to suggest finishing second last season is among the highlights of a career that has been littered with domestic and European success.

Read the full interview with Alexis in Friday's edition of United Review, available to buy at Old Trafford.

It is understood United officials have grown increasingly tired and suspicious of Pogba's high-profile agent Mino Raiola, whom they blame for stories that his client would prefer to play for Barcelona.

The ingredients appear to be in place for another Mourinho meltdown should United get off to a bad start and he believes even the scheduling of his side's opening fixture has made his task even harder.

United also hand a debut to Fred, who will complete an attack-minded midfield three with Pogba and Andreas Pereira - who impressed Mourinho in pre-season after spending the previous campaign on loan at Valencia.

"My view is that it is hard for me to believe that we finished second", he said. It's Anthony Martial's turn to be publically criticised as he chose to spend time with his family after the birth of his child rather than return to America.

Newman claims in her book that her former boss, President Donald Trump , is a racist who has repeatedly used the N-word. Omarosa says she rejected the offer. "It must have been something very, very sensitive", she writes in her book.

"You try to make a case and there is no case in it. There is not a story".

Ed Woodward has also been thrust into the limelight with Mourinho moaning at the lack of signings this transfer window.

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

The Red Devils kick off the new season at Old Trafford with Mourinho juggling a number of injury worries, while many of his players only returned to training at the start of the week following their World Cup exploits. "I am going to enjoy this season again".

However, Tottenham have become the first Premier League club not to sign a player since transfer windows were introduced in 2003, with their primary target Jack Grealish remaining an Aston Villa player.
