Jose Mourinho refuses to comment about Man United’s transfer window

Jose Mourinho reckons his job title should be that of a “head coach” rather than a manager, after Manchester United‘s 2-1 win over Leicester City in the opening match from the Premier League.

The Portuguese manager also spoke about not being able to execute his plan and even added that it would be until November when he could say if United would be in the race for the title.

The Telegraph quoted the manager as saying:

“I think football is changing and probably football managers should be called head coaches. I think we are more the head coach than the manager.

“Of course, it will be a difficult season for everybody. For us it will be a difficult 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.”

Mourinho also added that the club had to play against a team that spent more than United in the transfer window, while also claiming that other teams are bringing quality players into their side.

The former Real Madrid manager did not want to speak about the transfer market any more since it had closed.

“I think it’s the last time we speak about it, it’s over, finished, the market is closed and no more talk about it.”

United’s next fixture is an away clash against Brighton and it will be interesting to see how we line up against the opposition.

The season has only just begun and the United players would be looking to get into the groove but three points from the first matchday is certainly the right way to begin the season.
