Mourinho Aim A Jibe At Conte – “I Should Cry Every Week About United Injuries”

Published

on

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho believes he merits credit for not griping more about Paul Pogba‘s injury issues and those influencing whatever is left of his squad, saying he should go public about United injury issues more regularly to earn sympathy in what has all the earmarks of aiming another jibe at Chelsea‘s Antonio Conte.

Mourinho criticised Chelsea boss last month after United’s Champions League win over Benfica, referring to manager’s who “cry” repeatedly about a selection headache,

Pogba has been out for right around two months on account of a hamstring injury suffered amid a 3-0 Champions League triumph over Basel on September 12.

Five different players – Marouane Fellaini, Michael Carrick, Marcos Rojo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Jesse Lingard – are currently on the sidelined and Mourinho says their unlucky deficiencies ought to be considered.

“You know, I think it’s my fault because I should cry every week about our injuries and remind everybody, day after day or press conference after press conference,” he said.

“It’s my way of dealing with problems. It’s my way of trying to motivate and respect and give confidence to the players that are going to replace those people.

“But maybe I have to reconsider my profile. I know that I moan with a lot of things, but I don’t do with the injuries and probably I should.

“I think any other manager would be speaking about Pogba every day. ‘Oh, I don’t have Pogba. Oh, when will I have Pogba?’

 “‘Oh, 10 matches without Pogba. Oh, all the Champions League group phase without Pogba. Oh, all the big matches — against Liverpool, against Chelsea, against Spurs — without Pogba. Oh.’

“I don’t speak about Pogba one single time. It’s only when you ask me about his situation.

“And it’s not just Pogba. It’s Pogba, it’s Fellaini, it’s Carrick, it’s Ibra, it’s Marcos Rojo. It’s a big group of players. So yes, I think we are doing very, very well.”
