El Mundo: Mourinho accepts one year sentence in Spanish tax case

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho celebrates his win at Burnley Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho celebrates his win at Burnley

Before they played against Burnley, Manchester United had lost to Brighton and Hove Albion and Tottenham Hotspur in the league. I feel that I need to see the followers.

The fan-funded plane that flew overhead calling executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward "a specialist in failure" was a nod to the fact all is not well at United, but the victory at Burnley was a much-needed show of strength and unity on the field.

Concern over his fitness did not deter Mourinho, however, In fact, the Manchester United manager paid more than his £17.4m release clause in order to push the move through as quickly as possible in the face of interest from Barcelona and Real Madrid.

"Bardsley's been in the game for 20 years and Marcus is a naive boy".

"Harsh? I don't know".

Romelu Lukaku opened the scoring for the Red Devils as he latched onto a brilliant cross from Alexis Sanchez. He prepared [for] the game in a very good way.

Mourinho has not been afraid of publicly criticising his players throughout his United tenure, but one player who has regularly escaped the wrath of the Portuguese has been Lukaku. "This two week period now gives us a chance to rest and work, but certainly refresh ourselves for the challenge which is the Premier League".

Mourinho claimed that Pogba will remain United's penalty taker, despite his miss, should he wish to remain on duty.

"We lost at home, the fans were awesome to the team, the team understood that the direction was good, the result was bad".

England star Rashford has had a hard start to the new season, failing to score or assist a goal in United's first four games.

"The three points were an important thing, the quality of the performance and happiness of the team is an Old Trafford response - the way Old Trafford reacted to the boys in the Spurs defeat was important", he said.

It's no great surprise that United rebuffed a direct top four rival for two of their stars, and whilst Martial is seemingly impossible to prise away from Old Trafford, that may not be the case with Mata.

Apart from a couple of late efforts from substitute Sam Vokes, winless Burnley created little and their lack of penetration in the final third could leave them facing a long season ahead. Fellaini was solid in the air, winning many of his aerial duels and was surprising with passing ability as he kept it simply and helped to recycle the ball forwards many times throughout the game.
