Mourinho Explains Why Man Utd Won't Buy Replacement For Zlatan

GETTYJose Mourinho is not afraid of player power at Manchester United

I don't think it works with a two with Paul.

In his first season, under former boss Louis van Gaal, Shaw made 16 league appearances.

Jose Mourinho's son, Jose Junior, was by his father's side on the United bench during Saturday's match against Swansea.

After finishing as runners-up to Portugal at Euro 2016, France head to this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation as one of the favourites, but Pogba admits they still have more to do if they are to be successful at this year's tournament.

"Pogba's form has nothing to do with his injury". Ask the coach if you want to know why I play less.


After the disappointing reigns of David Moyes and Louis van Gaal, United turned to the Portuguese in the summer of 2016 in a bid to bring glory back to Old Trafford. I would be amazed if he lasts any length of time at United. "The team played very well in the first half, he played very well in the first half; the team went a little bit down in the second half and Paul also went a little bit down, but he played 90 minutes in Russian Federation [for France] and it's normal to go a little bit down with the rest of the players. Second-half I think Alexis was one of the guys who paid the price of the global week, playing two matches in three days".

Both Chris Smalling and Phil Jones have performed way below expectations this season, while Victor Lindelof has had a most challenging first season since making the move to England from Benfica.

The France worldwide made a blistering start to the Premier League season following two goals and two assists in his opening four games.

Mourinho claims not to have given Saturday's game much thought but believes United deserve second spot ahead of much-lauded Liverpool and Tottenham.

Shaw looks destined for the exit door, despite having appeared to win favour with the 55-year-old midway through the season.
