Mourinho: I got emotional when Rooney left

With the addition of Zlatan Ibrahimovic last season, Rooney made just 25 appearances in all competitions scoring 5 goals as Mourinho preferred to play the former as the main striker, which led the England global to end his illustriuos career at Manchester United.

Jose Mourinho has admitted he got emotional following Wayne Rooney's departure from the club.

Manchester United look a confident unit, and with mega signing Romelu Lukaku settling in well, Jose Mourinho is optimistic about the team's outlook.

"We have to be better, much better, for that objective".

Manchester United fans speculated that when they paid the world record fee for Pogba that he would hopefully attract top class players.

Meanwhile, Manchester United lost their first game of pre-season after four successive wins in the USA. And that was the same at Real Madrid, a big club with big expectations but a hard period with the evolution of other teams and the distance between Real Madrid and Barcelona growing bigger and bigger and bigger. But in discussing that deal, Mourinho hinted that he may be expecting Ibrahimovic to be available for United six months from now.

However, the visitors failed to keep their momentum as they struggled to stop Barcelona's star duo of Neymar and Lionel Messi. "I am doing my best, I want to get into the team this season, I want to help my team and hopefully we can achieve a lot this season". "The other is an attacking player through the wings to give me more attacking options", he said.

Mourinho further said: "Real Madrid, for me, was really something that I wanted to do".

Speaking at a news conference before his side's friendly against Barcelona in Washington at 19:30 on Wednesday (00:30 BST Thursday), Mourinho said no progress had been made. "But I have to say that Paul Pogba showed the level. he showed he belongs to that level".

"I can guarantee that he's not going this season, that I can".

In Mourinho's first season, Rooney was limited to just 15 Premier League starts but Mourinho has insisted that the club would have been happy to see the 31-year-old remain. I think Scott and Demetri are also kids to have a future in the club and Andreas Pereira is back.
