Jose Mourinho provides key transfer update regarding new arrivals

I think he was just voicing that frustration.

Mourinho, speaking after United were beaten 4-1 by Liverpool in MI on Saturday, complained that he could not name a stronger side with a host of stars on extended leave following the World Cup.

"I think that it's possible I will have one".

United are back in pre-season action on Wednesday when they face Champions League holders Real Madrid in Miami, Florida.

Jürgen Klopp has explained that he won't be signing a new centre back this summer and will be giving Joe Gomez more of a chance in central defence this season.

Manchester United is not the only club where the Portuguese coach has failed to build relationships with his players. Last season I didn't play much - that's my objective and my ambition.

Mourinho was not in a good mood after his undermanned United side were beaten 4-1 by Premier League rivals Liverpool at the International Champions Cup on Saturday.

In a report covered by BBC Sport, Mourinho confirmed that he would have liked to sign two players from the five-man shortlist submitted to Ed Woodward few months ago but at the moment, he may settle for a single recruit before the transfer deadline approaches on August 9.

The Reds have two more games before opening their Premier League campaign against Leicester City.

The first few weeks of the season will offer a more definitive answer to the question 'Will Jose Mourinho continue to suffer from "third season syndrome" at Manchester United?' "If it is not possible we keep fighting, working and believing in the players that we have". "It was probably because we played against my old team". The short term need for players to return to training early has to balance with the need to ensure they are recharged and rested after the World Cup.

"This is nothing to do with reinforcements", Mourinho said.

Responding to a question about Chilean worldwide Alexis Sanchez's performance against Liverpool, Mourinho suggested the pre-season tour had been of little value, adding that the team were just trying to "survive".

"It's a big club and I want to show my football too and you can see on the pitch that I have a lot of experience too".
