However, a move did not materialise and Mourinho must now work with the same central defensive setup as he did last season.
Mourinho was particularly annoyed to miss out on a series of centre-back targets, including Leicester's Harry Maguire who shone for England in Russian Federation. "We must get used to teams who have players of the same quality that we have", he said. "I haven't won the Premier League, I haven't won the Champions League, I haven't won the European Championship so there are more to win", he said.
"I don't want to speak too soon after one game, but I want to be up there with the best left-backs in the world".
The Premier League match between Manchester United and Leicester will be broadcast on NBCSN.
I won't be full from a World Cup.
The manager, however, celebrated on the touchline after defender Luke Shaw directed home his first senior goal to put the result out of reach after an excellent through ball from Juan Mata. "Even tonight, I know I can be better and that is what I want to keep showing the manager". "I am happy with the performance to make this game in this condition, it's encouraging for the future".
Everton Complete Signing Of Manchester United Target On Deadline Day
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has attacked his critics at today's first media conference for the new season. Mina, who was a target of Manchester United signed for Everton for 30.25 million on a five-year contract.
"Pogba was a monster", said Mourinho.
"Like I always say, I always give my best for the fans, for my team-mates, for the people that trust me".
"Paul was fantastic, his contribution was awesome but the fuel was disappearing". "We thought maximum [he would play] 60 minutes, but he managed more than 80".
Footage has emerged of the France global using the exact same technique against United's fierce rivals, but what happened back then was just freakish. I'm going to enjoy this season.
"It was not hard [to pick him], the decision belonged to him because Andreas Pereira comes from the Valencia bench as a winger to play No. 6, Fred, 10 days training, Ukrainian league, comes direct to Old Trafford, Ander Herrera injured".
"If I played Scott, I would have two kids and a new player [Fred] in midfield".
