Jose Mourinho: Alexis Sanchez right to be unhappy in Liverpool defeat

And United manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed he will miss the start of the Premier League season due to surgery.

"I would like two more players". "I think I am not going to have two". For me, it's possible.

"I gave my club a list of five names a few months ago".

"If it's possible.it's possible, if it's not it's not". If it's possible, it's good.

The weakness of his current squad was exposed by Liverpool on Saturday when Jurgen Klopp's team dominated their International Champions Cup fixture and won 4-1 in front of more than 100,000 spectators in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

José Mourinho has called on players such as Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and Jesse Lingard to cut short their holidays to help their struggling Manchester United team-mates.

He also bemoaned the fact he's missing so many key players because of the World Cup and said Alexis Sanchez is his only attacking option at the moment.

Mourinho is anxious to strengthen his first team squad, which is severely depleted during pre-season. We started the game with nearly half of the players who are not even going to belong to our squad on August 9.

"This is not our squad".

Reinforcements, you mean players that I would like to buy, that's another thing.

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

President Trump's tariff threats against China, Canada, Mexico and the European Union prompted immediate threats of retaliation. The administration clobbers farmers with an unnecessary trade war then attempts to assuage them with taxpayer handouts.

Speaking to the media after full-time, he explained: "Look, do you want him to be very happy with the players he has around him?".

Klopp was thrilled with his contribution and said: "That's not normal after four days in the club, adapting that well to the style of play".

"Do you want Sanchez to be very happy with the players he has around him?" We are not playing here to improve the team or our dynamic or routines. We still played simple and quick, kept them moving. We don't have wingers, we don't have strikers, he is the only who is here.

"We're trying to play these matches as best we can".

"After the [Borussia] Dortmund game, I didn't feel really good but I knew I don't have to make it bigger than it is".

"I have worked hard over the summer".

"If Tottenham can invest and get a couple of genuine performers at the highest level, they will be a real danger". United made a strong start to the summer with the likes of Fred and Diogo Dalot brought into the squad but they have since pursued just a solitary signing in the form of Lee Grant, who is expected the assume the role of the third-choice goalkeeper.

He added at his press conference: "I wouldn't spend my money to see these teams".

"For example I was watching Chelsea against Inter on television today". "They arrive here, and it was soccer, and they had to be in a soccer game".

His goal ratio still stands at an average of just less than one goal in two games, but Sturridge has made just 98 league appearances in five seasons at the club. They can not give more.

"The atmosphere was obviously fantastic". I'm taking every day as it comes with a positive mindset.
