Manchester United rejects claims to hire Zinedine Zidane

Manchester United rejects claims to hire Zinedine Zidane

After stripping Pogba of Manchester United's vice-captaincy last week, Mourinho insisted that there had been no falling-out with the club's record signing.

Jose Mourinho was critical of Anthony Martial's work rate after handing the Frenchman a rare start in Manchester United's 3-1 defeat at West Ham on Saturday.

Manchester United are now occupying 10th position on the Premier League standings with ten points after seven games played this term.

The Hammers suddenly look a world away from the side who lost their first four matches of the season, having taken seven points off Everton, Chelsea and United as well as putting eight goals past Macclesfield in the cup.

While Mourinho has been grumbling about his lack of backing in the summer transfer window, he was able to pay 35 million pounds (then $48 million) in January for Sanchez despite being a free agent six months later. That was followed up by a tragic loss to West Ham United by three goals to one.

Pellegrini's side have picked up seven points from their last three matches to get their season up and running.

Lampard makes his mark by bucking League Cup trend
But in the fifth minute of added time , substitute Fellaini headed in a Diogo Dalot cross to force the shootout. Pogba can't go anywhere until January, so he is guaranteed to be at Old Trafford for three months.

"I thought to play him as a second striker would be easier for him and at the same time I feel we need quality on ball in the building up from the back and Scott McTominay has that quality with the ball".

Anderson provided the second in the 43rd.

They were 2-0 down before half-time when Andriy Yarmalenko's shot from inside the box deflected off Victor Lindelöf for an own goal. "And after weeks of analysing and changing opinions with my coaching staff we made the decision that from now Paul is just a player and not a captain".

The former United manager says there is a reason Sir Alex Ferguson parted with Pogba back in 2012, as he was allowed to depart for Juventus at the end of his contract, and Jose Mourinho is showing himself to be the wrong manager for a flamboyant figure and the Old Trafford outfit as a whole.

But hopes of a comeback flickered only briefly.

Mourinho threw on Rashford shortly before the hour-mark and went close to pulling a goal back when Marouane Fellaini, operating in forward role, powered a header downward only to see Lukasz Fabianski pull off a fine stop. Mark Noble was able to thread a pass through to Arnautovic, who evaded Chris Smalling before striking past De Gea.
