Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says Munich air disaster resonates for him

03 February, 2018, 10:50 | Author: Lamar Ellis
  • Mourinho claimed his side conceded two'ridiculous goals in Wednesday's 2-0 defeat

"Unlucky for him and unlucky for me".

Jose Mourinho's decision to substitute Marouane Fellaini seven minutes after bringing him on was a big talking point following Manchester United's 2-0 defeat to Tottenham on Wednesday.

United are now second on the table, 15 points behind rivals Manchester City. Fellaini's deal ends on 1 July and the 30-year-old wants a sizeable increase on a salary thought to be around £120,000 a week.

'I told him yesterday, sign the contract and shut up, ' Mourinho joked at his news conference on Friday.

Fellaini lasted just seven minutes during United's 2-0 defeat to Tottenham on Wednesday after coming on as a second-half substitute and nearly immediately hobbling off.

Vaping is safer than cigarettes
A study a year ago looked at the effects of e-cigarettes in what they defined as "long-term users" (around 17 months). Details of the study are reported in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences .

With Carrick and Fellaini both set to be out of the picture in the summer, combined with Ander Herrera's limited influence this season, you get the feeling that one midfield signing won't be enough. "Two, three, four or five, I can not say at the moment".

"The Champions League is arriving [on February 21] and lots of tough matches to play and probably we are going to lose him for a few weeks". Mourinho draws inspiration from United's response after his Chelsea side won the Premier League for a second successive season more than a decade ago. "They always have areas to improve". That was the click for the improvement of the team. With Zinedine Zidane enduring a hard season at Real Madrid, many reports have linked the Argentine with becoming the next manager at the Bernabeu.

"In 2006-07, Manchester United wins the title back". It is not just about the points and finishing in the top four, which is important.

The Belgium global is out of contract at the end of the season and Mourinho, in lighthearted fashion, said he had told the midfielder to sign a new deal.

"If the team decides to sell me in the future then I can't do much but at the moment, I am very happy to be here in Rome".
