With little more than pride to play for last night, Southampton vs Manchester United was a particularly dry and low key affair, eventually ending in a scoreless draw at St. Mary's. Souness asked. "No it wasn't".
Paul Pogba will return for Manchester United for Sunday's home game against Crystal Palace after missing the last two matches due to the death of his father, manager Jose Mourinho said on Friday. Tell Wilfried Zaha to go slow, leave Christian Benteke at home. You only know them when you have them in good moments and bad moments. The 4-2-3-1 formation hasn't been used much by Mourinho this season, but he has had success with it in the past and he would like to have the option to field it with United. "I think we did more than ok", he said.
However, Souness isn't buying Mourinho's complaints about fixture congestion, his most common complaint this season. In fact, United would lose approximately $27 million in its kit deal with the apparel manufacturer if they don't make it back to the UCL next season. But they also have a large squad, which should offset the strains of competing on several fronts.
Following Schweinsteiger's exit, Mourinho made a point of apologising publicly to the footballer and admitting he'd made mistakes. "It's the price on the ticket if you're winning trophies". Next Wednesday will be our 19th European game this season. It's nothing new in football.
"It would be wrong for me as a manager to jeopardise anybody that you want to pick for that football match". But I repeat, the best for a young player is in the middle of an experienced structure.
It has robbed the 35-year-old Swede of a possible United swansong and the chance to write the ideal script in his homeland when United face his old club Ajax in Stockholm, though Mourinho has revealed Ibrahimovic will travel to Sweden to be at Wednesday's game anyway.
"Was that a hard game of football tonight?" No it wasn't. Was it a tough game against Tottenham at the weekend? For the players as well because they've got good bonuses for the position they finish in the league so they are well aware of what it means.
"Big players have to say to themselves 'I'm not exhausted.' I mean it, I never ever felt exhausted".
But Romero has already solved a problem about De Gea's successor should all attempts to keep the Spaniard fail. It's by looking at us not them.
