Manchester United great Paul Scholes said Jose Mourinho has made too many unnecessary changes at Old Trafford which has led to a philosophy which has so far failed.

"I asked for five players and they did not bring me any".

Following a successful summer in which he helped France to win the World Cup, Pogba's future at United has been the subject of speculation over the last week of the Premier League transfer window.

The Toffees captured one of United's targets - Colombian defender Yerry Mina from Barcelona - as well as Portugal winger Andre Gomes from the same club and Brazilian winger Bernard who previously played for Shakhtar Donetsk.

"But we have needs, the list that I gave you before of the injured players is an important list and after training I will speak with that group of players because everybody is different physically and mentally and see how they feel they are and to understand to think how they can help or not help".

He told BetVictor: "It has been a hard summer for Jose Mourinho and all United fans despite the signing of Fred".

"Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday (to prepare) is not enough". We don't have many solutions and we want to go with everything we have.

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

Leicester City, on the other hand, have recently lost Riyad Mahrez to Manchester City for £60m and just like United, have had disappointing pre-season results.

Maguire and Leicester's main goal threat, Jamie Vardy, may not start having just returned to pre-season training this week after their exertions in Russian Federation. So, when you repeat 1,000 times that my relationship with my players is not good, it's a lie that repeated 1,000 times is still a lie.

And the wait is finally over, as the Premier League is back tonight. He said: "I have my players, I like my players, I like to work with my players".
