Dunphy: 'Mourinho a bad fit for United'


The legitimacy of the illness which caused Paul Pogba to miss Manchester United's clash with Huddersfield yesterday evening has been called into question today.

The 32-year-old will be seeking a prized scalp once more when Sevilla face United in at the last-16 stage of the 2017-18 Champions League, and the World Cup victor is determined to give both current and former employers something to shout about.

Jose Mourinho called on the football authorities to start making video calls "perfect" after his Manchester United was denied a goal while beating Huddersfield 2-0 in the FA Cup on Saturday.

United will be hoping for the midfielder's recovery on time to face Sevilla in the Champions League on 21 February.

RTÉ Soccer analyst Eamon Dunphy claims Jose Mourinho's managerial style is not suited to players who are still developing, and works better with those who are more experienced in their careers.

"On Friday we had a good tactical session and then I have to prepare a new team". A number of players were injured ahead of the clash against Huddersfield in the FA Cup, which we won courtesy of a Romelu Lukaku brace.

The 20-year-old made history in 2015 by becoming the youngest player to captain a team in a UEFA Champions League match (at age 18 years and 221 days).

As for Pogba, Mourinho said he had no clue if the Frenchman would be available for the European tie.

United boss Mourinho is happy to see technology utilised and pointed to its relative success in Portugal, but felt it was wrong for video review assistant Neil Swarbrick to get involved given it was not a clear and obvious error.

Still, the United manager will have noted one thing about the way his side brushed aside David Wagner's team: Alexis Sanchez's eye for a killer pass has not been dulled by his move from Arsenal.

"He obviously thinks they should do better but the pressure is getting to them".

According to the Mirror the ill-feeling boiled over during last week's 1-0 defeat at Newcastle.

'We know it is a very hard match - but we go for it'.

"United were always our great rivals when I was at City, and we played some really important games against them".

Speaking about his return to the United fold, Scholes said: "He [Ferguson] originally wanted me to come back to coach the reserve team with Warren Joyce".

Jones also missed the game after he said he was unfit during the week.
