International Champions Cup organiser understands Jose Mourinho frustration

Jose Mourinho is famous for undergoing what has been labelled "third season syndrome" at football clubs.

The goal bore a striking similarity to the one the "Powercube" scored in the 2014 World Cup.

Good for Mourinho to call out the ICC for charging such high prices to see games featuring mostly 3rd-teamers and youth system players.

United's England internationals who were involved in the World Cup have also been called upon as Mourinho feels like his team is nowhere near ready for the start of the Premier League season.

United play one more friendly after the conclusion of the ICC, against Bayern Munich at Allianz Arena, before they kick-off the new Premier League season at home to Leicester City on August 10. "I do not know that, I can not say what I'm doing right now, there's still some time left [in the transfer window]".

Alexis Sánchez appeared frustrated at times against Liverpool and Mourinho responded by saying, "Do you want him to be very happy with the players he has around him?" We used to play at Monaco together so I know how he plays.

"I hope somebody wants to do what Rashford and Jones made a decision to do", Mourinho said.

Mourinho has been on a damage-limitation exercise for several days, claiming after a heavy 4-1 defeat by Liverpool in MI that they are merely trying to prevent "ugly results" because of how weak the teams he can put out have become. The people there decided the beach is better than this, so the stadium was empty. "It was probably because we played against my old team". I think he was just voicing that frustration.

Fosu-Mensah spent last season on loan at Crystal Palace but the 20-year-old wants to stay in Manchester and hopes his versatility impresses Mourinho.

Manchester United have signed two new players so far this season.

Mourinho views a centre-back and a wide man as the most important positions to strengthen, with Harry Maguire and Ivan Perisic at the top of his wishlist. "I'll keep working hard and see what happens". "We might tweak the format, but it's not a World Cup year, everyone is excited to come and I don't think we will have anything near the same problem".
