MANCHESTER, England – Jose Mourinho has insisted that Manchester United are in a "difficult" season despite starting the campaign with a 2-1 victory over Leicester at Old Trafford. And in what appeared to be another dig at Executive Vice President Ed Woodward, the 55-year-old suggested he was no longer a United coach but a "coach". The victory over Leicester came only 24 hours after Woodward had arrived empty-handed on the day of the deadline despite Mourinho's request for at least a new center-back. bring the Portuguese to vent his feelings after the final whistle at Old Trafford and reiterate his warning for the new season. "I'm at the start of the Premier League with the market closed in the situation I thought I would not be in," he told Sky Sports. "For us it will be a difficult season because I have had my plans for many months." This is the management of football. I think football is changing. Football managers should now be called more coaches. José Mourinho observes from the side line during the Manchester United match against Leicester.

We have to wait until the end of November, beginning of December, to understand how things are going and if we can fight for the title. Or believe in the experts and follow what they say. "Let's play a team that invests more than us [Leicester] we spent more money than we, so in the Premier League we have to get used to teams with players of the same quality we have. "Forget the name, the story, the shirt, every game is difficult." Despite having aimed his anger at the Manchester Council, Mourinho had some positive things to say about Paul Pogba, who was captain for the evening, scored and put on a man-of-the-match performance after a preseason which lasts four days and returns to Carrington on Monday. 26 days after raising the World Cup with France, the twenty-five scored an early penalty and dominated the midfield before being replaced after 84 minutes. "Pogba was a monster," said Mourinho. "Paul was fantastic, his contribution was fantastic, we thought for a maximum of 60 minutes, but he managed 80". "It was not difficult [to pick him], the decision was up to him because Andreas Pereira comes from the bench of Valencia as a wing to play n. 6, Fred, 10 days of training, Ukrainian championship, comes direct to Old Trafford, Ander Herrera injured. "I had only two options, Scott [McTominay] or Paul, but if I play Scott, I play two kids and a new player, so I asked Paul and he made himself available to the team and he was very, very good for us. "Mourinho also confirmed that Pogba had his blessing to take the penalty after what seemed to be a disagreement with Alexis Sanchez, he added:" The thought is that he is a very good penalty player and he likes the responsibility and he is the first choice. "Of course, we have a second or third choice in case it is not confident or some reason does not want to take it but it was ready and obviously trained many penalties during the World Cup because it is something in a competition like the one that every player he trains a lot and he was very sure. "[Kasper] Schmeichel is very good on pens but no chance. "
