Jose Mourinho: I'm now a coach, not a manager

Jose Mourinho: I'm now a coach, not a manager

The midfielder returned on Monday and, although he has not featured in any pre-season friendlies, he was thrust straight back into the action four days later as the Premier League got under way once again at Old Trafford, United winning 2-1 on Friday.

Jose is the type of manager who gives someone the captaincy for the right reasons and I think he chose to give Pogba some responsibility for managing the game and the players around him, which was a very clever move. "I think we are more the head coach than the manager", he said.

"Of course the boys with the proper pre-seasons, they were in much better condition", Mourinho said. I enjoy the last season, the fight to finish where we finished and to manage the best position in five or six years.

"We played against a team that invest more than us". They [Leicester] 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.

"I want to play Martial but I can't, Paul Pogba can't play 90, Fred the same". Every team is a good team, forget the name, forget the history, forget the shirt. "I have worked really hard over the preseason and I had a lot of time to reflect, and work on what I needed to", Shaw told Sky. Pogba responded with a strong all-round performance, as well as scoring the opening goal after what I have to say was a very unusual run-up for his penalty. "Valencia is the captain and Paul is one of the options, his third season in the club, made in the academy, understand the clubs the culture, good relation with the boys and a good example today of putting himself available to try and help the team".

Let us know your thoughts in the comments. "But very complete performance, he just has to keep going, the mentality was very good, the tactical discipline was very good too and he had the power to move forward and score an important goal for us".

When the deadline passed at 5pm on Thursday there were no new arrivals at Old Trafford.

"It was tough for Harry Maguire, he gave his best and had a good game".

Shaw wasn't positive his goal meant he'd remain a first-choice starter for Mourinho, but he said he's set his sights high.

However, the second goal of the game would eventually come for the hosts late on, via an unlikely source.
