Mourinho accuses midfield of lacking 'bite'

Adjust Comment Print

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho took aim at the lack of passion from his midfield after their 2-2 draw at Southampton.

Six minutes later, it was 2-2 when Rashford got to the byline and cut the ball into the six-yard box, where Herrera nipped in front of his marker to score with a cute back-heel that McCarthy got a hand to but could not keep out.

The Red Devils are thought to be after a centre back in January but Mourinho believes their chances of signing anyone from a team like Tottenham are unlikely.

Mourinho apparently said to Pogba: "You don't play".

"We lost so many balls in midfield, we lost so many balls in our transition to the last third, it was hard to have that continuity". Can you buy Tottenham's best players? No.

He said: "The second goal was a direct free-kick and the first goal was because we don't press enough the ball when our block is low, which is something that we do wrong".

"That was hard to have that continuity". I need to sell'.

Joy Behar Invites Kid Rock on ‘The View’ After Fox News Remarks
Behar, for her part, invited Rock onto The View , saying, "This b***h and these b***es would be happy to have you on the show". At the Waffle House in May, Shaw tackled and disarmed a shooter who had shot and killed four people and injured two others.

"I'm pleased with him even without that [goal] because his work rate was incredible", he said. It doesn't matter the system we play, it has to do with the characteristics of the players.

With Mark Hughes emphasizing time and again how his side had improved in the last few weeks despite results going against them, the early lead showed his words weren't without merit.

Barring an impressive final 20 minutes in the first half, it was another lethargic display from Mourinho's men, with Pogba struggling in particular to make an impact as he lost the ball 25 times in the 90 minutes.

"But good spirit, good fight, good comeback from 0-2 to 2-2".

Neither side could go on to find a victor in the second half, but Hughes was delighted with his team's performance despite seeing them lose a two-goal lead. I don't recall too many occasions where we've needed Alex [McCarthy] to help us out. Great examples of players fighting until the limits where probably I would say as positive examples, Marcus Rashford, Phil Jones, of course many others showing that respect for our shirt, that respect for the club.

United are back in action on Wednesday evening against Arsenal at Old Trafford.
