Martial then reportedly told his teammates that he has no intention of returning for the last two matches of the tour.

"But I don't have the players to work with. If not, I need to look at myself and maybe find another solution". But I'm feeling really good. "I think you have to be fair and now you have to demand (they win the league)", Mourinho added. I've been unlucky because I've had a few ups and downs, with different managers, but I would say I've never been out of shape. "I always look big because I'm bigger built - I've got that Wayne Rooney type of body".

"Valencia is injured, you are right", Mourinho said.

While United's title rivals have also embarked on pre-season tours missing several World Cup stars, Mourinho rejected suggestions the mass absenteeism would create a "level playing field". But, the most important thing to (Mourinho) is results, he will be judged on that.

"He knows what I can do".

"I can't keep sitting on the bench and let my life go on, smoking a cigar and not doing anything". I want to play football.
