Jose Mourinho ready to cut fringe players

Jose Mourinho ready to cut fringe players

Manchester United's out-of-favour attacker Henrikh Mkhitaryan was involved in a training-ground row with Jose Mourinho last month, according to a report.

The 23-year-old Ivorian picked up the injury while on worldwide duty in October and hasn't played for United since their loss to Chelsea on Nov 5.

Mourinho said: "He goes to surgery, the decision is made".

Defender Luke Shaw is another potential January departure, although the indications have been that the former Southampton player intends to remain at Old Trafford for the rest of the season.

United head in to the weekend action sitting 11 points adrift of Man City so they'll be hoping the leaders drop points at home to Tottenham on Saturday night which would give Mourinho's men the opportunity to close the gap on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Mourinho has claimed that his experience of lifting Real Madrid back to the top of the European game will stand him in good stead at Old Trafford.

Nasa's Acting Administrator Robert Lightfoot welcomed the announcement. "No human has walked there since", the statement said. Bush had called for Nasa to return astronauts to the moon by 2020, a mission that Obama ended out of cost concerns.

Phil Neville has backed Romelu Lukaku's decision not to celebrate his victor in Manchester United's 1-0 win against Bournemouth on Wednesday night.

"When you're cooking for 200-odd people, that's a lot of time, effort and money going straight into the bin".

Mourinho said: "When I went to Real Madrid, they were in a hard moment, no league title or cup, not even a Champions League quarter final for many years". I had that experience before.

"I don't like the January market just to buy [for the sake of it] but if you can buy a player in January that you would buy in June or July and can get him a few months before, then great".

"I think for the right price", said Mourinho, when asked if he would listen to offers in such circumstances.

Mourinho has also revealed that he is unlikely to make a major move in the January transfer window when it opens in a little over two weeks' time although the United manager would not rule out the possibility entirely. "To have Micki means that I don't have one of them and, in this moment, I believe the other ones they deserve [the chance to play]".
