Jose Mourinho: 'No rest for Romelu Lukaku'

Romelu Lukaku had another night to forget

Manchester United lost their Champions League game against Juventus 1-0 on Tuesday and with that the pressure in back on the Red Devils to qualify for the knockout stages.

The manager played a strong team with Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Romelu Lukaku all starting.

In that time, Mourinho's side have slipped to 10th place in the Premier League standings and also crashed out of the League Cup to second-tier Derby County.

Sanchez is set to miss Sunday's Premier League home match against Everton, with the groin issue he sustained on Chile duty restricting him to a five-minute substitute appearance in last Saturday's 2-2 draw at Chelsea. "That's the base that allows them to play with the freedom in attack", said Mourinho after the defeat. "But we are in good spirits, we are in good form, we're enjoying ourselves".

"At this moment we are not in the best situation to think about resting players or trying to find solutions".

"One day will be and one day he will score and one day his confidence levels will be back to normal, which clearly they are not there but I always feel that."

ISIS has taken 700 hostages which include U.S. and European citizens
The issue, however, can be discussed among Iran, Syria, and the US , with Russian Federation joining the dialog, he added. Commander Sean Robertson, a Pentagon spokesman, said they have not received any proof of the large number of hostages.


The former Barcelona star is thought to be on huge weekly wages at Old Trafford - some believing them to be up to £500,000 a week - which might explain why United are willing to allow his departure.

"But we know our strengths, we know what to do to obviously keep the fans quiet, that's the most important thing".

That prompted some to question the players' support for their boss, but Sportsmail understands they had no option other than to remain on-board after security workers intervened, pointing out that they only had enough numbers available to safely escort the manager and not the rest of the squad.

"You may be going into the game a bit more relaxed and you don't need that, not in these sorts of games".

Man United have spent £400m since Mourinho arrived in 2016 - should they be doing better?

"You can lose games but you take risks".
