Mourinho sends stern message to United stars after City's Premier League win

Mourinho sends stern message to United stars after City's Premier League win

United's record signing was widely praised following a dominant performance in the Manchester derby last weekend but was withdrawn with half an hour to go in the Red Devils' defeat against West Brom.

"He's made everybody believe that they're good players and that they can do the things that he's asking them to do".

"Some of the guys that played [against West Brom] don't have a place in that team [for Bournemouth]".

There is interest from Italy in Matteo Darmian and Daley Blind, and sources have told ESPN FC that Anthony Martial will seek assurances about his role before restarting negotiations over a new deal. Asked further what he saw from the players, Mourinho answered, "I saw lots of people on the moon because we won against Manchester City. The only way is to go with performance".

"He's just built a bit of confidence back up", West Brom captain Brunt said.

Manchester United were poor throughout the match.

Pogba missed the next game at Huddersfield with a mystery illness that did not stop him from training at Carrington the following day.

"I've given them a bollocking, and quite rightly", said Ferguson.

And what of Pogba's future at United after it emerged on Monday that he is the biggest name on a list of players Mourinho is ready to offload in the summer?

Pogba has previously been dropped this season for a series of games that included the two-leg defeat at the hands of Sevilla in the Champions League. But the fact that Mourinho has chosen to do so suggests that he feels strong enough to take the risk.

By beating City, the Red Devils stopped their rivals from celebrating winning the Premier League - not that it matters anymore. Everybody will try to improve - like we did from last season. Pogba was hooked before the hour, although he had not had a awful game and Mourinho explained it was due to being on a yellow card, suggesting he is keen the Frenchman is available for the weekend. Everything was complicated. We couldn't think fast, we couldn't play fast.

Finding a buyer prepared to give United their money back on Pogba will be a challenge due to the lack of clubs capable (or willing) to spend so much on the 25-year-old, but Mourinho still believes that the France worldwide can be a crucial player alongside better midfielders than those now at his disposal.
