Jose Mourinho missed out on a number of transfer targets in pre-season

Man United's transfer woes in pre-season has left Mourinho feeling more like a head coach than a manager as his targets were reportedly vetoed.

United were linked with several new players in various positions across the pitch during the close-season, but in the end only Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant arrived.

Media speculation suggested the reason United had not been as active

as expected was down to the club's hierarchy overruling Mourinho on his primary targets.

And the Portuguese seemed to confirm those reports after Fridayl’s unimpressive 2-1 win over Leicester in the EPL's opening game of the 2018-19 season, a campaign he predicts will be "difficult" for his squad.

"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," Mourinho said.
