Mourinho Defends His Decision For Benching Star Duo

Published

on

Jose Mourinho

Manchester United manager José Mourinho has defended his decisions to bench Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford since the second half of this campaign.

Anthony Martial was one of the best performers for the Red Devils in the opening period of the season but the Frenchman was surprisingly fizzled out of the team’s starting lineup by José Mourinho towards the festive period.

To worsen the situation for the 24-year-old, Jesse Lingard entered a blistering form, scoring and creating many goalscoring opportunities for his teammates and that further pushed the former Monaco player down the pecking order.

Just as Martial, Marcus Rashford is rated one of Premier league’s brightest youngsters heading into the season but his qualities seem to have depreciated due to lack of regular actions.

The acquisition of Alexis Sanchez in the previous transfer market has dashed the player’s hope of returning to Mourinho’s starting lineup before the end of the season.

When asked for the reason behind his decision to bench both players throughout the season in his pre-match conference, Mourinho told reporters that he could only start 11 players in a single match so there is no room for the young talents.

He also showed how bad he felt for dropping both players from his regular starters but he admits he wouldn’t drop in-form Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez from his lineup so as to create space for the talented youngsters in his starting 11.

With Mourinho’s latest comment, both players could be tempted to end their stay at Old Trafford in the summer as they would love to move to another club where regular action is guaranteed.

Pailo Dybala

Juventus attacker Paulo Dybala is closing in on a move away from the Italian Serie A club this summer.

Paolo Dybala could move to French Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG) according to Daily Post.

It was revealed that Juventus will open talks with PSG later this week over the big money sale of Dybala who came close to moving to the Premier League before the English top flight transfer window ended on August 8.

Manchester United wanted to sign him in a swap deal involving Romelu Lukaku but his financial request blew the Red Devils out of the running to sign him.

Tottenham Hotspur also wanted to sign him this summer but the move didn’t see the light of the day.

Paolo Dybala has been told by senior Juventus officials to get a new team as he’s surplus to requirements under the managerial reign of Maurizio Sarri.

According to the aforementioned publication, PSG are ready to offer as much as €80m (£73m) but Italian champions Juventus are holding out for €100m (£91m) and it remains to be seen whether the French giants would accept the asking price from the Italians.

PSG sporting director Leonardo has had his hands full since returning to the club after six years and he wants to conclude a deal for Dybala in the next few days.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has been left infuriated by one of his players according to The Mirror.

Pep Guardiola is said to be angry with winger Leroy Sane over his decision to undergo surgery with another doctor.

Leroy Sane and Manchester United were dealt a big injury blow after the German international winger sustained a serious knee injury.

Sane injured his anterior cruciate ligaments during the Community Shield clash between Manchester City and Liverpool.

Despite his injury, Manchester City were able to win the Community Shield via a 5-4 victory in the shootout after both teams had played out a 1-1 draw.

Guardiola and Manchester City wanted trusted doctor Ramon Cugat to carry out the knee operation on the 23-year-old only for the player to opt for Austrian doctor Professor Christian Fink.

Ramon Cugat is a known face at Manchester City having operated on the likes of French defender Benjamin Mendy and Belgian international playmaker Kevin De Bruyne in the past.

The decision made by Leroy Sane has left ex-Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager Guardiola infuriated according to the aforementioned publication.

Sane is expected to be out of action until next year as a result of the knee injury sustained during the Liverpool game.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has had his say on the disappointing draw at home to Leicester City.

Lampard and his Chelsea players drew 1-1 with Leicester City at home to further extend their winless run at the start of the season to three games.

After the Leicester City game, Frank Lampard spoke to the media about the result as he pointed out that his players should have done better against the Foxes.

Lack of game management was responsible for the disappointing result according to ex-Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard.

The Blues legend also said that his team played well for the first 25 minutes and that it should be the blueprint for the rest of the season unlike the final 65 minutes of the game.

Frank Lampard also said that the performance against Manchester United was better than the one churned out by his players against the Brendan Rodgers-led Leicester City team.

The Manchester United game ended in a 4-0 defeat in what’s his first match as the new Chelsea manager having been appointed into the job this summer.

Marcus Rashford (2), substitute Daniel James and Anthony Martial were the goalscorers for the Red Devils.

Lampard and Chelsea played 2-2 with Liverpool in the UEFA Super Cup before they were beaten 5-4 on penalties in his second game as the new Chelsea manager.

Manchester United flop Alexis Sanchez is on the verge of leaving the club before the European transfer window ended after agreeing on personal terms with Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan.

The news of the agreement was announced by trusted Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.

The Premier League transfer window has closed but players can still move from the English top flight to other leagues and Alexis Sanchez falls into the category.

The Chilean international also attracted the interest of Inter Milan’s rivals AS Roma but the Italian capital club dropped out of the race to sign him due to financial reasons.

AS Roma can’t afford the finance required to sign the former Arsenal, Udinese and Barcelona attacker.

Inter Milan have agreed on personal terms with the player but they will still need to reach an agreement with Premier League giants Manchester United over the transfer fee for the player.

Alexis Sanchez has three years left on his present contract with Manchester United and the three-time European champions want at least £22m for the player according to the latest reports in the British media.

Manchester United have not reaped their rewards on Alexis Sanchez who earns £500,000 on a weekly basis at the club.
