Jose Mourinho Wants Three New Players At Manchester United

Jose Mourinho Wants Three New Players At Manchester United

The Times claim there is no suggestion the 21-year-old crocked Pogba on goal in Friday's training session ahead of United's 2-1 win over Liverpool on Saturday.

"He's playing well. He is using every minute on the pitch and outside the pitch to learn", said the United boss, whose side shared a 0-0 draw at Sevilla in the first leg of the last-16 tie.

'I don't know what Real Madrid's intentions are, but if I were them, I would think of another player'. "If I finished the session one minutes before it wouldn't have happened".

"When you are in the last 16 it looks really, really far [away] but when the team gets in the last eight you start smelling semi-finals".

United's midfield three of Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez and Juan Mata in the first leg was designed with counter-attacking purposes in mind - a triumvirate capable of supplying and finishing off one killer pass to make all the difference - but it ultimately caused the visitors to stagnate and regress during the game. "It can be a historic match for the club if we get into the quarter-finals".

"In modern football you have to live day-by-day, week-by week and match-by-match and I can imagine that if we lose against Sevilla on Tuesday everyone will have forgotten what we did in the last couple of weeks". "But we will try".

Manager Jose Mourinho had on Saturday after the Liverpool game replied that he did not know if Pogba will be available for the winner-takes-all tie.

He also cited Sevilla's group-stage draws against Jurgen Klopp's men as a sign of their quality.

McTominay, who was born in Lancaster so is also eligible to play for England, played a key role in United's recent matches against Sevilla, Chelsea and Liverpool.

At the same time, it has to be remembered that Sevilla were the team disappointed with the fact that the first leg ended goalless.

"I do not feel like we have any advantage at this moment".

On Manchester United's end, Jose Mourinho announced that the squad is not going to have too many changes in comparison to the side that defeated Crystal Palace and Liverpool this past week. latan Ibrahimovic and Ander Herrera remain out, as well as the trio of defenders of Phil Jones, Daley Blind and Marcos Rojo.

Anthony Martial is another doubt, the forward missed the Liverpool win with a thigh injury.
