Jose Mourinho heavily criticizes Manchester United after pre-season loss

Sanchez spends time with Hollywood stars after pre-season win over AC Milan

Mourinho has nine players out injured, while a further eight still on extended breaks following their exploits in the Soccer World Cup in Russian Federation this summer and not due back in training until this week. This is not our team, this is not our squad - not even 30 per cent of it.

Reports reaching home from the U.S. tour depict players too nervous to talk openly about what they think, with the Daily Telegraph and The Sun claiming those in the squad feel they are "treading on eggshells".

"I'm confident I will get one, but I think two I'm not going to get, which is not a drama", said Mourinho.

Mourinho had been banking on starting the Premier League season with a back four of Valencia, Shaw, Bailly and Smalling, but all are now injured or carrying knocks, throwing his preparations into disarray ahead of the home game against Leicester on August 10.

United have signed Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant this summer so far and Mourinho said after their 4-1 International Champions Cup defeat to Liverpool at the weekend that two new signings would be ideal. "We are not playing here to improve the team, the dynamic or our routines". I think he was just voicing that frustration.

Mourinho's comments were subsequently compared by football fans to the recent praise Pep Guardiola gave to the young players in his Manchester City squad.

Mourinho continued to explain that the fans in the US which were around 101,000 in the stadium did not deserve to watch this performance but saw two great goals; "These people here show how much they love their club and came to enjoy the clubs they love in Europe.

If I sign one player before the window closes, that's fine".

"If it's possible it's possible, if not, it's not".

The French footballing legend left Real Madrid at the end of last season having guided the La Liga giants to three consecutive Champions League titles.

He was more critical of French striker Anthony Martial, who he said should have returned to the U.S. tour after going home to be with his girlfriend when she gave birth to a baby boy in Paris.

Mourinho also had his say on Paul Pogba, and his influence on the France team that lifted the World Cup, the Portuguese coach insisted that the conditions were ideal for the midfielder to flourish and that he should take this form into the Premier League season. "Alexis is the only striker we have".

"I just hope that the boys that are on deserved holidays, they take care about themselves a little bit". He wants his full team.
