Mourinho has invested money in young, talented future super star players.
And the Special One insists he might as well go on holiday if he feels United can not claw back the 11-point gap to rivals Manchester City.
“I can only have six (outfield) players on the bench and I try to have some balance on the bench”, Mourinho said, as he explained his squad section for Wednesday night’s 1-0 win against Bournemouth.
Former Manchester United manager, Louis van Gaal believes that the club is way more boring under Jose Mourinho.
The Portuguese has until until 6pm on December 18 to respond to the request. They have incredible players, they have a fantastic coach, they have lots of good things. But Mourinho has since said that he gave Mkhitaryan an extended chance to find form, and that he failed.
He added: ‘You know, what we did in the Arsenal stadium [after winning 3-1 their earlier this month] it was completely diverse.
“They wanted to win the match and I could see that from minute one to the last second”.
‘I’m not saying first or second choice, he’s an option, ‘ he said.
Both City and United have already been asked to provide observations on a post-match fracas in the tunnel at Old Trafford. It is part of everything.
I’m not a doctor, I think the doctor can inform [you]. Our intentions were not that. Lukaku looked particularly drained in the closing stages of the Bournemouth game, but dropping him having just maybe regained some confidence after heading home his 14h goal of the season doesn’t seem likely. “We won a derby”, he said of a Premier League-record 14th consecutive win. “It was to celebrate inside the locker room”.
“We played football that was quite alright”.
