Paul Pogba reportedly wants out of United once again
Manchester United kicked off the new Premier League season with a 2-1 win over Leicester at Old Trafford.
Yet after Mourinho was denied the signing of an elite centre-back in the summer window he voiced his frustrations by hinting United's board, led by Woodward, are acting as de facto football experts by having the final say over him regarding recruitment.
"It will be a hard season for everybody, not just for us", said Mourinho.
"We played well in periods against a good team that invested more than us", he said. He said: "I have my players, I like my players, I like to work with my players". It's over, the market is closed.
"I think football is changing and probably football managers should be called head coaches". I enjoy the last season, the fight to finish where we finished and to manage the best position in five or six years.
"We know the players, and myself as well, didn't have a lot of training and we played a game".
The midfielder, who named captain for the night as United's Premier League campaign got off to a winning start, netted a penalty after just three minutes. It was a good match with three good teams, in my opinion.
"I had only two options, Scott [McTominay] or Paul, but if I play Scott I play two two kids and a new player, so I asked Paul and he put himself available for the team and he was very, very good for us".
Fulham sign Vietto on a season-long loan from Atleti
Timothy Fosu-Mensah is heading back to London, about 10 miles south east of where he was plying his trade last season. Speaking after joining Fulham , Fosu-Mensah told the club's website: "I have a good feeling about the Club".
It was very exciting to watch for the first 20 or 25 minutes but, when they took their foot off the gas, Leicester came right back into the game.
Boss Jose Mourinho selected the £89m signing despite his lack of pre-season following an extended post-World Cup rest.
Pogba offered up an impressive post match interview as he confirmed he is eager to move on from France's World Cup glory and focus on club football once again.
"He was a monster".
"We should start the Premier League with a win and we did", he said.
Leicester manager Claude Puel felt his side deserved a draw.
Yes, Marcus Rashford missed a couple of half-chances, but there was nothing clear-cut, while Romelu Lukaku should have scored when he was clean through but Kasper Schmeichel made a superb save.
Their first thought when they got the ball was always to get it forward and they were trying to get their wide players high up the pitch, which is the United way. "If it is not possible, we will continue fighting, working and believing in those we have".
Jose Mourinho sends angry message to board over transfers
Eric Bailly did superbly to deny Iheanacho, and Vardy bundled Shaw off the ball to send in a cross that Gray nearly flicked home. It was the first senior goal for former England and Southampton defender Shaw, on the 23-year-old left-back's 141st appearance.
