Manchester United back José Mourinho despite manager's transfer frustrations

Man City GETTY City won the league by 19 points last season and are favourites once again

Anthony Martial has issued a statement after his premature departure from Manchester United's pre-season tour angered manager José Mourinho.

The wheels have threatened to come off during the club's pre-season tour of the United States, with the Portuguese becoming increasingly outspoken and irritated by a variety of matters. However, the Frenchman has left José Mourinho in the dark over his whereabouts, and United's manager has admitted that he doesn't know if Martial will return once they get back to Manchester.

The Norwegian saw a free-kick saved by De Gea late on but United held firm to lift Mourinho's mood.

'We are going to make good players from our youth team again when they grow older because I repeat, our under 23's were relegated'. "He is an honest man, always ready to give everything for the team".

Mourinho has cut a frustrated figure throughout pre-season, due to several of his high profile players being unavailable due to their exploits at the World Cup and an inability to land his main transfer targets.

"As I was saying to the players, some of my players will be in an incredible condition", he said. "I know the one who are ready for anything, and I know the ones who are not ready".

The Guardian is reporting that Manchester United have informed Mourinho that there are finances available to improve the Red Devils squad before the current transfer window shuts.

But unlike the rest of his team-mates, the Brazilian came out the airport dragging three large suitcases despite only being in the U.S. for just over a week.

United is without a number of players after they were given extended breaks following the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

He has been linked with moves to Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Tottenham but sources have told ESPN FC Mourinho will not consider letting him join a Premier League rival.
