Jose Mourinho hits back at critics

Manchester United have to defy their own coach José Mourinho's fears of a season of doom and gloom when they kick off the Premier League campaign against Leicester City tomorrow. I think it is clear what is going on and how we are going to move in the future. "I'm not confident and the market closes today so it is time, at least for me, to stop thinking about the market because the market will be closed, so I will have to focus on the players I have".
Asked whether he he believed there would be any movement in or out of Old Trafford on deadline day, Mourinho replied: "The information I have is no".
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho does not expect to add to his squad before the transfer window for Premier League clubs closes later on Thursday (Aug 9) at 1600 GMT.
Harry Maguire, Toby Alderweireld and Yerry Mina have all been strongly linked with moves to Old Trafford this summer, but the chances of a late arrival are slim.
"My view is that, first of all, is hard for me to believe we finished second", he said.
The Germany global is aiming to win one more Champions League title in his career.
"You also have to consider that Liverpool are City's Kryptonite".
Mourinho, who will be without the likes of Nemanja Matic, Antonio Valencia, Ander Herrera and Marcos Rojo on Friday, once again bemoaned the lack of preparation time for the start of the season, with many of his players having just returned to training after taking time off following the World Cup.
"They return on Monday, trained Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and today so you can imagine that they are not really fit and ready but we have needs", Mourinho said.
Writing in his column for the BBC, Shearer said: "Their team is definitely already good enough to challenge champions Manchester City for the title, but can Jose get the best out them, and can they play in a style that can keep their fans happy?"
