Jose Mourinho 'very humble' in taking over Man United - Sergio Romero

Jose Mourinho insists there will be no more arrivals at Manchester United this transfer window.
Jose Mourinho says Bastian Schweinsteiger is unlikely to feature as the competition in the squad is very high.
Don Hutchison says that the Europa League won't be a priority for Jose Mourinho, but believes that he will still want to win it.
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho insists he's pleased his side have been handed a tough Europa League draw.

Jose Mourinho has been "very humble" at Manchester United from the start of his reign and even sent a good luck message to Sergio Romero, the reserve goalkeeper has told ESPN FC Radio in Argentina.

Former Chelsea manager Mourinho announced himself as a "special one" when he arrived in London in 2004, but Romero has seen a more caring side to the 53-year-old in Manchester.

"He is not a very complicated person. He's been very humble from day one," Romero said. "I didn't know him and he sent me a message...

Alfie Mawson set to move to Swansea after fee agreed with Barnsley

Francesco Guidolin insists the starting XI places at Swansea are far from a guarantee to any player.
Alfie Mawson, right, is set to complete a move to Swansea.

Swansea have agreed an undisclosed fee with Barnsley for their central defender Alfie Mawson.

Hillingdon-born Mawson joined Barnsley from Brentford in June 2015 after the player had loan spells at Luton, Welling and Wycombe.

Mawson has made 64 appearances and last season was a part of the Barnsley side which won the Sky Bet League One play-offs and lifted the Football League trophy at Wembley.

"The move is subject to the 22-year-old agreeing personal terms at the Liberty," said a statement on the...

Criticism of Klopp's Liverpool is fair, but calls for his sacking are far-fetched

The ESPN FC experts debate the proper grade for Jurgen Klopp's managerial performance thus far at Liverpool.

Modern football is an unforgiving sport. It used to be widely accepted that three seasons were required for any manager to put his own mark on a team. In the whole of the 1980s, Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool had just three managers each. Leicester City, Tottenham and Chelsea had four. Manchester City had seven, and another seven in the 1990s, but that's the sort of club they were in those days, and frankly, football is all the poorer now that they're so much richer.
