Mourinho takes swipe at United's detractors

Mourinho takes swipe at United's detractors

"Nothing will happen before the transfer window shuts?"

'My view is that first of all it's hard for me to believe we finished second, ' said Mourinho of last season.

Mourinho was speaking at a 9am press conference and his words did not equivocally rule out the possibility of something happening. "The information I have is no", he replied matter-of-factly.

Liverpool have invested heavily over the summer as they look to pose a challenge to last season's runaway champions, Manchester City, but the same can't be said for United.

Here, Sky Sports takes an interactive look at how the competition between the two Manchester clubs has evolved throughout the Premier League era, with City slipping to the third tier before fighting back to overtake their neighbours. Is not an opportunity, is a match, an important match, we would prefer to have a couple more days but decision was to be first to play and that's it. Sometimes its also hard to believe I won eight championships and three Premier Leagues, and I keep thinking the second position past year was one of my biggest achievements in England'.

"You also have to consider that Liverpool are City's Kryptonite. [Sergio] Romero, [Antonio] Valencia, Marcos Rojo, [Diogo] Dalot, Ander Herrera, [Nemanja] Matic [are injured] and I think that's it".

"They returned on Monday, trained Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and today so you can imagine they are not really fit and ready but we have needs", Mourinho said.

We are sure to see a number of huge deals go through today and we will be keeping you up to date with every single one of them no matter how big or small. In football you need time to work and players on the pitch to work and we didn't have that until now.

"We have only seen him when he has appeared in front of the TV cameras this summer and heard what he has told the media, and I suspect he will behave very differently on the training ground with his players".

The Red Devils coach has cut a sullen figure throughout pre-season with the former Chelsea boss unable to hide his dissatisfaction with Brazil global midfielder Fred being his sides only high profile signing.
