The organiser of the International Champions Cup says he understands Jose Mourinho's criticism of the pre-season competition.

Bookmakers are now taking bets on Mourinho becoming the first Premier League manager to be sacked or leave his post this season.

With Man City running away with the league last season and Liverpool strengthening considerably over the summer, challenging for the title will be hard, as will playing a style of football that will entertain the fans after 2017/18's dour displays.

Mourinho is angry that the club's board has only allowed signing of only two first-team players.

And I wait to see if it's possible to have one of these players.

Jose Mourinho wants two more signings before the transfer deadline - but is only confident of getting one.

Looking forward to the new season, United fans?

"His condition was not good when he was back", he said after the player returned to the squad from holiday.

Manafort earned $60M from Ukrainian consulting work, prosecutors say
Two Democratic consultants who worked with Manafort in Ukraine, Tad Devine and Daniel Rabin, are set to testify against him. In Zehnle's retelling it was Gates who was the point person for Manafort's book-keepers and tax preparers.

The former Wolfsburg midfielder was very close to a move to the Red Devils last season but Manchester United couldn't agree a fee with Inter Milan for the Croatian star.

Asked if he knew his XI for the game, Mourinho said: "More or less, I know".

He was more critical of French striker Anthony Martial, who he said should have returned to the United States tour after going home to be with his girlfriend when she gave birth to a baby boy in Paris.

"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.

"The players we have bought one is a goalkeeper cover, one is a 19-year-old kid". We started the game with nearly half of the players who are not even going to belong to our squad on August 9.

United fans were quick to raise their concern after watching the clip and slammed Mourinho's players for their lack of effort.

Mourinho's mood has not been helped by United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward's perceived failure to deliver the transfer targets he identified before the summer break, with the window closing in just 10 days.

"I was surprised. When you have players like Ronaldo and Messi, you think they will stay with the club forever".
