Shaka Hislop makes Man United prediction about Jose Mourinho

How one Man Utd youngster is helping Fred settle in at the club

How one Man Utd youngster is helping Fred settle in at the club

Mourinho has consistently complained in recent weeks over his lack of backing from the United board and also had a host of injuries and players lacking match sharpness after the World Cup to contend with. Andreas Pereira, who spent last season on loan with Valencia in La Liga is set to play a key role in United's first team after an impressive spell in Spain, and he is helping his compatriot get used to life in Manchester.

United gaffer Jose Mourinho claims he "needed six changes not three" in his side's season opener, with Anthony Martial seeing no game as other options had to take priority.

Despite being able to broker a number of lucrative sponsorship deals around the globe, Woodward has failed to deliver players for all of the managers in his tenure, with current boss Jose Mourinho being the latest Man Utd boss to vent his frustrations at not receiving his transfer targets.

The France midfielder scored from the penalty spot to help United record a 2-1 win over Leicester City on Friday, despite returning to training just four days prior to the fixture. I came in the academy, I grew up.

"We don't have a penalty taker, it's how we feel and I made a decision to take it".

"We changed Daley Blind [returned to Ajax] for a 19-year-old kid [Dalot] that we believe has the potential to play right-back or left-back".

"For us, it will be a hard season because I had my plans, and I had my plans for many months, and I started the Premier League season without a situation I thought was possible".

"It's not a role that I give to myself".

It was a striking comment from the midfielder in what has been one of few occasions that he has stopped to speak to the written media after a United match.

However, he can still rely on one of the world's best goalkeepers as David de Gea put his poor World Cup showing behind him with a fine save to prevent Maddison levelling. Leicester came close to an equaliser though when substitute Jamie Vardy robbed Shaw and found Demarai Gray whose flick forced another good save out of De Gea.

It comes after a summer during which Pogba's relationship with Mourinho has appeared strained.

"And wearing this armband, it's even more [special] because of the past, because of the players that played here, the people that have been wearing this".

Shaw got the start, which would have been nerve-wracking for him.
