Mourinho in ‘fear’ ahead of Manchester United’s start to the season

The Portuguese insists that he is unsure how the campaign is going to start, given the absence of a number of players

Jose Mourinho admits he “fears” the start of the Premier League after a tumultuous pre-season at Manchester United.

“This is a very strange pre-season. It’s not our fault,” he told beIN SPORTS.

“They did as always a fantastic job to organise it, and we must give the players at the World Cup a little bit of a holiday. The pre-season in terms of organisation is fantastic but we don’t have our players and that’s a big frustration especially because we go back to Europe and when we arrive, we start the Premier League, with all the risks it takes to us.

“We are going to start without the players that were involved in the World Cup, without proper training for them and it’s going to be hard. Honestly, I fear it a bit.”
