Jose Mourinho believes his Manchester United team had nothing more to give as they ended their pre-season with a narrow defeat to Bayern Munich.

"If we don't make our team better, it'll be a hard season for us", Mourinho told MUTV after United's 1-0 defeat to Bayern Munich on Sunday.

"If some players are ready, of course we are going to use them but we are not going to take some risks because sometimes for one game, you lose the players for one month or two months and that is (why it is) so important to be clever in the decisions that we are going to take".

Former Arsenal playmaker Nicholas predicted that Mourinho wouldn't last the season at Manchester United after a hard summer. "The players were, once more, brilliant, they could not have done better than what they did", added Mourinho to MUTV. (It was a) fantastic experience for the boys.

"At the same time it was Lewandowski on Axel, Robben on Mitchell, (Leon) Goretzka on Garner and (Niklas) Sule on Chong. Players are not going to be here on Friday and we have to go with best possible team and with a great mentality".
