Pre-season talking-points: How are Manchester United shaping up?
beer777Manchester United's pre-season ended with a whimper against Bayern Munich but what have we learned ahead of their season opener with Leicester?,United ended a turbulent pre-season campaign with a disappointing showing, losing 1-0 to the German champions and failing to register a shot on target.
History repeating itself? Mourinho's mood has turned sour during this pre-season campaign - perhaps indicating a repetitive pattern seen at previous clubs in his third season in charge. The manager has openly criticised Antonio Valencia's physical condition, questioned Eric Bailly's leadership qualities and disciplined Anthony Martial for not returning to their tour after his girlfriend gave birth to a baby boy in Paris.
beer777 However, Mourinho's biggest bugbear has been regarding his transfer budget. Brazilian international Fred has been one of three signed up, but Mourinho is keen to have two new faces in the squad and fears United are in for a "difficult season" if he is unable to get the players he desires.
We've seen Mourinho in this type of mood before. This dark demeanour was on show during Chelsea's start to the 2015/16 campaign. Despite winning the Premier League title in May and signing a new-four deal in August, Mourinho oversaw a sloppy International Champions Cup campaign where Chelsea suffered defeats to New York Red Bulls and Fiorentina. The champions went into the new campaign with no wins from their five pre-season matches.
Mourinho was frustrated with the level of professionalism during that trip with Diego Costa returning reportedly overweight and a section of players repeatedly turning up late for training.
Off the pitch, Chelsea were linked with Paul Pogba, Raphael Varane and John Stones. Those deals were not done. beer777 Instead, Mourinho signed Baba Rahman from Augsburg for £21.7m and Papy Djilobodji. All that pre-season woe culminated in a classic Mourinho pitch-side meltdown in their opening Premier League game at Stamford Bridge against Swansea when he became angry when Chelsea's medical staff rushed to treat Eden Hazard with his team chasing the game.
