Jose Mourinho aims early dig at 'serial winners' Liverpool and Tottenham

  • Training: City get the X factor!

The transfer window may officially shut at 5pm on Thursday but Blackpool and Fleetwood can still be active in the transfer market thanks to an EFL rule.

Mourinho also suggested he had not been given enough credit for guiding United to a runners-up finish in the Premier League last season, as he again suggested the negativity around the club was misplaced.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has stated that he does not expect to sign a player today.

The highest-spending clubs were Liverpool (£165m), Chelsea (£120m), Fulham (£105m) and Leicester City (£100m), representing around 40% of the aggregate gross player transfer expenditure by Premier League clubs.

"I will have to focus on the players I have and in relation to this first couple of matches".

'My view is that first of all it's hard for me to believe we finished second, ' said Mourinho of last season.

Asked whether he he believed there would be any movement in or out of Old Trafford on deadline day, Mourinho replied: "The information I have is no".

"He said: "[Sergio] Romero, he had a surgery after his injury, [Antonio] Valencia, he was injured in pre-eason, Marcos Rojo, he was injured in the World Cup, [Diogo] Dalot had a surgery in Porto at the end of April and he is not yet ready.

'It is hard for me to understand we finish second which I keep saying, that I won eight championships and three Premier Leagues but I keep feeling the second last season was one of my biggest achievements in the game'.

The Arsenal legend said: "I want this season's title race to be more spicy and I think it will be".

The Portuguese believes runners-up are often portrayed as if they have been relegated and those who finish below them are presented as "serial winners".

'I said during pre-season - it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, something insane - but I repeat: pre-season is hard when you don't have your players to work, it's as simple as that'.

"Like any big club, they need some silverware - in his first season at Old Trafford, 2016-17, Mourinho won two trophies - the League Cup and Europa League - but he won nothing last season".
