Jose Mourinho: 'No big changes to team'

United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has become increasingly concerned with "the negative tone set" by Mourinho, and with the club's new Premier League season starting on Friday 10 August against Leicester he fears the players are being infected by their manager's defeatism.

Preseason preparations have been far from ideal with Jose Mourinho bemoaning the club's lack of activity in the transfer market, picking needless fights with several players, and generally moaning about every aspect of managing one of the world's biggest clubs.

The players were dwarfed by their fellow athletes, who cast imposing figures. Normally you don't get what you want which basically happened throughout my career.

"There are challenges in a World Cup year".

The result was a league campaign that never got going, and led, ultimately, to the dismissal of Conte at the end of the season. They just think about football.

"We are looking at changing the format next year, but it's a bit cyclical anyway". There's probably not a lot a members today. With rivals enjoying a happier and more promising preseason, some fans have even taken to social media to vent their frustration and demand the Portuguese manager is sacked before he does more damage to the squad and club harmony.

"Maybe I'll get one more if that's possible". I have nothing but admiration for him and what he does.

"They are there, just for that".

Cohen says Trump knew about Trump Tower meeting with Russians
Giuliani also claimed the conversations exonerate Trump from any wrongdoing. The New York Times first broke news about the meeting in July 2017.

Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku, Marouane Fellaini, Ashley Young, Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo and Victor Lindelof are not in the US after taking time off following the World Cup.

Anthony Martial was another to miss out, having returned home from the tour to attend the birth of his second child.

'The atmosphere was good but if I was them I wouldn't have come. "I watched Chelsea versus Inter earlier and people had decided the beach was better".

The Portuguese manager has constantly seemed downbeat during his press conferences on United's preseason tour of the United States. "The stadium was empty".

"I'd like to have two more players, although I don't think I'm going to have two more", he said.

Although global players such as Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and David de Gea will be available for their first game against Leicester on August 10 at Old Trafford, they will not have played a game for three weeks and may well not have trained properly, either.

And the right-back says he now wants to leave the club for the opportunity to play more regular football.
