Mourinho: I asked for five players and none have arrived

Mourinho: I asked for five players and none have arrived

Two of the world's most powerful clubs will meet in Miami on Tuesday as Real Madrid faces Machester United at Hard Rock Stadium as part of the International Champions Cup.

Mourinho's stance has seen Bookmakers react and he is now classed as second-favourite in the Premier League sack race. "They thought was a baseball game", Mourinho said. For me, it's possible. They deserve the best teams and invest to bring the best clubs to the US. That is fantastic, and why people like [Ander] Herrera and others have so much respect for the fans, and they give everything they have.

The United boss has knocked the club's lack of movement in the transfer market and criticised a number of players for a myriad of reasons before the season has even begun.

Manchester United was without stars Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku, both of whom are coming off deep World Cup runs.

"At our team meeting, Jose ran through a presentation of what we can expect [from SeaWorld] and you have to say it's impressive", Juan Mata told FourFourTwo. We are playing here just to survive and to have some not very happy results.

"It's not like the gaffer to make an oversight in his match preparations, so it seemed odd that he would inadvertently have played each of us almost 235 miles out of position", Mata continued.

"And the poor man is there trying his best with the frustration of someone who wants more".

He said: "This is not even 30% of my squad".


"The players we have bought one is a goalkeeper cover, one is a 19-year-old kid".

"I'm focused on my training sessions and on the games. Nothing. Nothing at all".

"Anthony Martial has the baby and after the baby is born - handsome baby, full of health, thank God - he should be here and he is not here".

"I'd like to have two more players". It was not fair on Alexis [Sánchez] and [Juan] Mata and [Ander] Herrera.

"Matic has had surgery".

"I agree that when the season starts the transfer window closes", said Mourinho.

Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld, Leicester ace Harry Maguire and Chelsea winger Willian have all been linked with a switch to Old Trafford. "I don't know how long he will be out for".

"I would like to have two more players".
