Mourinho: Wait to see if Man Utd can contend

Mourinho: Wait to see if Man Utd can contend

Nine Spurs players took part in the World Cup semifinals and only returned to training on Monday, with Pochettino assessing their readiness ahead of the Newcastle trip.

"I made a decision to take it - I was one of the names - but maybe next time I can leave it to Alexis, it's not a problem".

United failed to win a trophy past year under Mourinho. I know it's a great cup, it will stay in my mind, but I want to win all the trophies.

"The team played as a team", Mourinho said. The foxes relentlessly attacked United, with none of their final attempts really challenging De Gea.Finally, one attempt on goal was deflected behind the goal for a Leicester corner in what was surely the last kick of the game.Every Leicester player, including Schmeichel, raced up to the penalty box, ready to fight for the point. He continued, "I would get two more".

"Paul was fantastic, his contribution was incredible but the fuel was disappearing".

Luke Shaw scored his first goal at the senior level as United doubled the lead in the 84 minute before Jamie Vardy pulled one back for the visitors.

Mark Spure, an off-duty police community support officer for Avon and Somerset Police, described Stokes as the "main aggressor" . Stokes, in a written statement given to police after he had been arrested, said he had acted in self-defence when punching Mr.

United failed to build on that positive start, though, as Leicester went onto enjoy the better of the first-half with £20 million signing James Maddison impressing on debut. "We thought maximum [he could play] 60 minutes, but he managed 80. We were in trouble", added Mourinho.

He went on to say the it looks like he was more of a head coach than a manager.

When asked if he would make a signing today, Mourinho said: "The information I have is no".

Young full-back Diogo Dalot, Brazil global midfielder Fred and back-up goalkeeper Lee Grant were all important additions and could well go on to play crucial roles in the Premier League campaign to come, but everybody knows that United haven't done the work they set out to do in May. "He made one mistake in 90 minutes, he was very good defensively".

If moves for Maguire and Alderweireld can not be completed before today's 5pm deadline, United may turn to Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng - although that deal would only be for a season-long loan.

However, the report suggests that the United hierarchy did not want to pay over the odds for players who did not come with a resale value, nor did they want to focus their attention on anyone who could only hold down places in the team on a short-term basis.
