Manchester United won the Community Shield, the League Cup and the Europa League in Jose Mourinho's glorious debut spell a year ago, and Giggs opines those are signs of things to come.

Mourinho had previously claimed that he would like to coach his country, when he feels "tired". The Portuguese admitted in an interview he was having a rough time at Camp Nou.

But he told the magazine: "I am not close at all".

"I think being the coach of a club is my job. I would say I am even further away from being exhausted now than I was a few years ago".

Mourinho said Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo had a similar effect to Argentina's Lionel Messi, describing both as "so good that they can make their teams better than they are on paper".

Donald Trump Responds to Roseanne Cancellation
A way to keep the cast and crew together in some way? It's unclear if " Roseanne's " 10th season will be eligible for any Emmys. ET, quoted Herman Cain on Fox saying "I believe they were looking for a reason to cancel #Roseanne and here's why".

United, meanwhile, are hopeful of bolstering their defensive options with Portugal under-21 full-back Diogo Dalot to add competition for regular right-back Antonio Valencia, who will turn 33 in August. "As a United fan you want to compete for the league and compete in Europe as well, but winning the FA Cup and coming second, you can build on that and we all hope they can compete for the Premier League next year".

"Brazil, due to their manager Tite, can play well tactically and defensively, but they still have that natural Brazilian talent". And of the European teams, Spain looked really strong in qualifying.

Meanwhile, Mourinho added that it will be sides like Portugal, Argentina, Brazil and Spain that ought to be among the favourites to win the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

Fred would offer enough defensive qualities to play in a double-pivot, but he would also pose enough of a threat going forward to diversify our attacking threat.
