Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool did reach they Champions League final, which they lost to Real Madrid, but Mourinho is still bristling over the perception of last season as a disappointment for United, who also lost the FA Cup final to Chelsea.

Mourinho faced the press ahead of tomorrow's season opener against Leicester City, though the major topic of information was whether or not United would strengthen their squad.

This new deadline which closes before the season starts has really ramped up the pressure on these transfers which means we could see a whole host of panic buys as clubs look to add to their squad before the Premier League season starts this weekend.

Mourinho revealed this morning he is not expecting anybody to join United before the transfer deadline, with the window shutting at 5pm.

Both clubs finished below United last season in the Premier League yet Mourinho claims they are projected as "serial winners" despite failing to land a trophy since 2012 and 2008 respectively.

"[Alexis is] more than ready but you can not have the players who arrived only last Monday after the World Cup semi-finals or final and three weeks' holiday".

Sergio Romero, Valencia, Marcos Rojo, Dalot, Ander Herrera and Matic are all injured for Leicester's visit, while Mourinho needs to check on the fitness of those that returned late from the World Cup.

Jose Mourinho 'not confident' of deadline day signings
Mourinho warned last weekend that a "difficult season" could lie ahead if they failed to strengthen the squad before the deadline. Leicester City have lost on seven of their last eight visits in the league, scoring a total of just three goals in the process.


"So I will have to focus on the players I have and in relation to this first couple of matches, maybe four matches because after Burnley there is national team and a couple of weeks to recover people and prepare people better, is to focus on players available so I'm not thinking about that list I give you, I focus on what we have".

"Because it is very important their feeling and to understand how they think they can help or not help".

"My view is that first of all is hard for me to believe we finished second", he added.

"So it's hard for me to understand or to feel or to believe that we finished second, which I keep saying that I - and sometimes it's also hard to believe - that I won eight championships and three Premier Leagues".

Romelu Lukaku, Marcus Rashford and Phil Jones all came back early from their own extended breaks but Mourinho sounded downbeat again when he was asked about the new season.

"In pre-season it looked like I was saying something absolutely out of order, it looked like I was saying something insane", he added.
