Man Utd blocked Mourinho from signing Willian

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has said finishing second behind Manchester City last season feels like one of his "biggest achievements" as a manager in football after the criticism he has received.

"I have my players and I like my players, I like to work with my players", said Mourinho.

The United manager predicted a "difficult" campaign if there were no new arrivals before the end of the transfer window and the deadline came and went on Thursday with no movement into Old Trafford.

Former Arsenal playmaker Nicholas predicted that Mourinho wouldn't last the season at Manchester United after a hard summer. He's one of the players that I have to speak to, to see how physically and mentally he feels.

There have been many conflicting opinions from so called "club insiders" and "in the know" journalists about the potential of Alderweireld's deal still being a goer. I'm sure United would've known of him, certainly Mourinho I imagine would have known of him as well.

Nevertheless, it seems Chelsea held off their rivals just as they did with Willian who was believed to be another target of Mourinho's.

Israeli air strikes 'kill woman and toddler'
The gathering had raised hopes a deal for a lasting truce with Israel, with the backing of Egypt and the United Nations. Gaza residents reported several Israeli airstrikes after the Palestinian rocket barrage.

"When you repeat 1,000 times that my relationship with my players is not good, it's a lie - and repeated 1,000 times it is still a lie".

"He didn't have a pre-season, three days of pre-season", Mourinho said. I enjoyed last season, the fight to finish where we finished and to manage the best position this club has had in five years. Clubs from other leagues are also free to bid for Premier League players.

And while those players are all now back in training, with Lukaku, Rashford and Jones having returned earlier than scheduled, Mourinho has admitted he will still be without a number of key players against Leicester.

The move was created to ease disruption in the first few weeks of the campaign after a number of high-profile players, including Alexis Sanchez, Philippe Coutinho and Virgil van Dijk, missed matches at the start of last season due to transfer speculation.

"It is hard for me to understand, to feel, to believe we finish second - which I keep saying, and it is sometimes hard to believe".
