Solskjaer confident young stars can give Man Utd a good season

The United boss went on to respond to questions over a backlash from supporters and a perceived negative mood around the Theatre of Dreams, adding: "Well that's not the feeling inside the club and the fans I've met are excited with the signings we've had".

"I think Ole has looked at that and probably Lukaku has looked at that. I just hope that he gets a good start at Inter Milan".

"Within the team and the club we are feeling very confident and we don't feel that negativity", he insisted. The players are here now and have been shown that trust and we believe in them.

"It's all part and parcel of growing up in a United shirt".

Eight defeats in their last 12 matches last season condemned United to a poor sixth place in the Premier League and although the club has signed defenders Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, as well as winger Daniel James, the summer has also seen them loose midfielder Ander Herrera and striker Romelu Lukaku, while Marouane Fellaini was sold in January and Real Madrid are still interested in Paul Pogba.

"That's how you know the way forward".

"Sometimes in football unbelievable things can happen, but we are speaking about a team that last season won everything, we are speaking about the European champions, we are speaking about the European runners-up".

"With the same amount of rest this year we've been able to schedule training, it's been a lot more individualised and I feel a lot better for it".

Mourinho will now be a part of the Premier League set up in his new football expert cum commentator avatar and will make his maiden appearance in this role when his former club Manchester United meet Chelsea on Sunday.

"The Premier League is a special competition for me, one that takes so much hard work to win and you just can't take your eyes off the matches every week", Mourinho said in a statement released on Saturday morning.
