Manchester United's Champions League trip to Sevilla on Wednesday night is the type of occasion for which the English giants swallowed their pride to pay £89 million ($125 million) for Paul Pogba, four years after he left Old Trafford for Juventus as a free agent.

Manchester United are overwhelming favourites to win the tie despite Sevilla's recent successes in Europe and their general good form in cup competitions this season.

"Well, I open the training session today and I open in a period where normally don't open", Mourinho said of the 15 minutes of training that UEFA make clubs open up to the media.
"When a player is in that situation it's because the players are normally ready and without problems".
"So, you could see that in training some people that didn't play against Huddersfield with problems, like Pogba, (Antonio) Valencia, (Marcus) Rashford, (Ander) Herrera".
Keane's jibe appears fairly hollow when you look at the stats and his criticism of Young - who has adapted to his new role better than many could have hoped - in particular appears pretty harsh.

Mourinho subsequently hit out at reports claiming his relationship with Pogba had broken down, repeatedly calling the speculation "lies".

"I think the responsibility is for everyone, so I don't like that kind of approach".
"Sevilla's anthem? I always listen to it to further understand the spirit [of the club] and to get better with my Spanish".
