Here's What Jose Mourinho Said About 'Anthony Martial Wanting To Leave'

If I was you I would go ask why Lukaku plays every match, why Matic plays every match.

However, Mourinho insists he will not bring in any competition for the Belgian striker. The answer is, if you want what I call dry answers, we have dry answers.

Adding that he had not selected Rashford for his recent starting line-ups "because I decide that way", Mourinho said: "If I were you, I would go in another direction (with your question)".

"So probably I would have to reduce and send some away". Football can not be whittled down to catchy headlines; sacrificing genuine insight in favour of shock value deprives us of being able to have a meaningful connection with the sport online.

The Manchester United forward's opportunities to play from the start have been limited since Alexis Sanchez's arrival from Arsenal in the January window and there is speculation over his future at the club. Only 11 can start.

The Manchester United boss has had to watch on as neighbours Manchester City steamrolled their way towards an nearly certain Premier League title. That would be wonderful economically for the football club if you had only 11 with no injuries and no suspensions and no fatigue.

The forward has made more United appearances for Mourinho in all competitions than anyone else, but has been given only one Premier League start this year.

The best answer Mourinho could deliver would be to go after west Brom like his side did in the second half against Manchester City in last weekend's 3-2 win. I am surprised because of the quality and experience of numerous players and the squad.

"In our case, we come from a big result". I didn't, because I was not complacent, because I was working really hard, because I tried to build motivational training sessions with new exercises, with things that could motivate them, with little tactical things that I know for the players is motivation.

"We need the points to finish second".

"To finish fourth we need four or five points, but to finish second we need much more than that".
