Man Utd manager Mourinho delighted with Bournemouth build-up


"Antonio Valencia? I watched something amusing in his Instagram where he says "work work work" in the gym", Mourinho said.

"I don't think as a player you could do that, you've got to respect the club and the fans and also respect your team-mates".

In-form Bournemouth take on a tentatively resurging Manchester United at the Vitality Stadium in Saturday's early live encounter.

The attacking players, without Romelu Lukaku, failed to link up with Alexis Sanchez and Anthony Martial failing to got hold of the ball and show their attacking flair.

Mourinho pointed to United's failure to be more ruthless in their past two league matches, the draw at Chelsea and the 2-1 home win over Everton, as evidence of a problem that is costing them points.

The 22-year-old Frenchman's curler proved to be the victor in Man United's 2-1 victory over Everton at Old Trafford and was the highlight of the match.

"We will have Juventus away before Manchester City. The form book would say we might be favourites going into the game", Francis insisted.

Jose Mourinho wants Anthony Martial to sign a new deal at Manchester United and laid down a challenge for the forward.

Conte still managed an FA Cup final victory over United in his last game in charge, but CaughtOffside understands there are concerns within Old Trafford that he would not represent enough of a break away from the Mourinho era.

The FA charged Mourinho after the game for using foul language during the game, but the manager has escaped any punishment after the governing body's charge could not be proved.

The Football Association have fined Marco Ianni £6,000 after the Chelsea coach admitted to improper conduct during the Man United vs Chelsea game.

"You know the reason why I ask the club and lawyers to appeal was because I was 100 percent sure that I was not guilty of these charges but you never know how it ends", he said.
