Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has taken a dig at his Arsenal and Liverpool counterparts Arsene Wenger and Jurgen Klopp respectively in his pre-match press conference for the Community Shield.

The FA Cup winners will take on the English champions Leicester City at the Wembley on Sunday. The Red Devils have added three new faces to the squad and the Portuguese coach confirmed that he is looking to complete one more signing before the start of the new Premier League seasons.

Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford for a world-record transfer fee of £110 million. The price tag associated with the France international’s imminent switch to United has been criticised by both Wenger and Klopp.

Mourinho, who did not take names in his press conference suggested that two managers of other Premier League clubs have been talking about United’s transfer business, which according to the former Real Madrid and Chelsea manager is unethical.

“I heard two of my colleagues from other clubs already speaking about us. I do not like that. It is not ethical. There are things that when I do are not ethical and when others do it everything is normal and nobody says that. I do not speak about the others. They can do what they want,” Mourinho explained.

“All that matters is what happens in my house and not in my neighbours’ house. Paul Pogba is a Juventus  player until he isn’t, officially, so we stay like this. The market closes on Aug 31 but I think my club is trying to do everything to close our market before the 14th.”

“[We have signed] A young defender that needs time to be a top one but who has top potential. A creative player that we know the quality, a super striker, and we are going to get a very good midfielder.”
