The Chilean believes they can help get the best out of him

Manchester United's transfer woes in pre-season has left Jose Mourinho feeling more like a head coach than a manager as his targets were reportedly vetoed.

Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw inspired Manchester United to an opening-day victory as they ignored background noise and their deadline-day frustration to overcome Leicester.

United were outstanding in the early stages and I think the Foxes were in shock at the way they came out of the blocks and took control of the game.

Pogba's focus on trust seemed pointed, as did his post on Twitter shortly after the match.

"Paul was fantastic, his contribution was wonderful but the fuel was disappearing".

United moved quickly to add Diogo Dalot, Lee Grant and Fred to their ranks during the summer window, but Mourinho feels that his squad has not been significantly upgraded since the end of last season.

"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 put himself available for the team and he was very, very good for us". I need more changes but I couldn't.

Mourinho has made no secret of his disappointment that he was not able to significantly strengthen his team during the close-season. "I think we are more the head coach than the manager", Mourinho told Sky Sports.




United were not convincing as Leicester displayed wonderful creativity and had good possession throughout the first 45 minutes of the much-anticipated match.

Having led France to World Cup glory only a few weeks ago, the 25-year-old wasn't expected to feature for United until gameweek two at the earliest.

Sharing a picture of his goal celebration on both Twitter and Instagram, he wrote: "I'll always give my best to the fans and my teammates no matter what's going on".

"We know the players, and myself as well, didn't have a lot of training and we played a game".

The crowd went wild as players surrounded the World Cup victor, but one fan, who was named after the great George Best was celebrating more than most.

Sanchez ticks all the boxes you want from your forward, so it is very hard to leave him out.

"Harry started and played well, Jamie came in with good quality and scored".
