Jose Mourinho’s proposed trip to SeaWorld clearly clashes with Real Madrid game

Jose Mourinho  Jose Mourinho has been the first to admit that Manchester United's pre-season preparation has been less than ideal

"I don't think he is a great leader", Mourinho said of Bailly while adding that newly-appointed captain Antonio Valencia's physical preparation was below expectations.

Jose Mourinho wants two more signings before the transfer deadline - but is only confident of getting one. I think in every pre-season it happens basically the same with probably every club, which the manager wants more. But then, club decisions are different and normally you don't get what you want which happened during all my career.

"I gave a list to my club of five names a few months ago and I'll wait to see if it's possible to have one of these players".

Mourinho had been banking on starting the Premier League season with a back four of Valencia, Shaw, Bailly and Smalling, but all are now injured or carrying knocks, throwing his preparations into disarray ahead of the home game against Leicester on August 10.

And the 19-year-old, who has only made eight senior appearances to date, is enjoying the experience so far, despite mixed fortunes for United in pre-season.

"So, in fact, we have one new player which is Fred so of course our team is not going to be very different".

High turnout in first post-Mugabe poll
A recent Afrobarometer survey of 2,400 people put Mnangagwa on 40 per cent and Chamisa on 37 per cent, with 20 per cent undecided. However, the Zimbabwe Election Commission (Zec) insists that it has acted within the law, and will deliver a credible poll.

Goalkeeper David De Gea and midfielder Fred have now linked up with the squad but Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku, Marouane Fellaini, Ashley Young, Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford, Phil Jones and Victor Lindelof are not in the US after taking time off following the World Cup.

Currently, the ex-Monaco ace is earning about £150,000 plus as wages per week at the Premier League outfit which is another concern that prompted new PSG boss Thomas Tuchel to snub a move.

With Grant and Dalot not seen as first-choice players, Mourinho says his starting XI will be similar to last season's.

"I think something has gone on in the background maybe they've had a fallout or whatever".

In the aftermath of that, there were reports that his relationship with vice-chairman Ed Woodward were "at an all-time low" but these rumours have been denied by a reliable source when it comes to Man United news, sports journalist Simon Stone. When they fell they are going to the knockout phase and can win the World Cup, they close each other.
