Mourinho Blasts Klopp , Pogba Praises Martial, Club Face Battle To Land £84m Belotti

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has called out managers who sent out a weakened team during English FA Cup matches in a clear dig at his Liverpool counterparts Jurgen Klopp though he refused to mentioned names of managers that do not respect the oldest cup competition in England.

Former Mainz 05 and Borussia Dortmund boss Klopp made the headlines for the wrong reasons after he fielded a weakened team in the 3rd round of the competition against lowly Plymouth Argyle at Anfield as both sides played a disappointing goalless draw before the Reds sealed a 4th round spot by winning the replay 1-0 at Plymouth some days later courtesy a Lucas Leiva strike.

The German manager again fielded a weakened team in the 4th round tie at home to English championship Wolverhampton Wanderers and they deservedly lost 2-1 to Paul Lambert’s side.

Speaking to the press in his pre-match conference ahead of his side’s visit to English Championship strugglers Blackburn Rovers, Jose Mourinho, who won the competition in 2007, stated that he won’t be fielding a weakened team for the match slated for Sunday clash as he added that he had been taught a harsh lesson when he fielded a depleted side against Newcastle United as Chelsea manager and his then team subsequently crashed out after a 1-0 loss.

POGBA PRAISE MARTIAL

The world most expensive player Paul Pogba has showered praises on his Manchester United colleague and French international teammate Anthony Martial after his impressive performances in the colours of the Red Devils in all competitions (English Premier League (EPL), UEFA Europa League (UEL), English FA Cup, and English League Cup).

Pogba made this known while speaking on the performance of the former AS Monaco star in the team’s 3-0 win over French side Saint-Etienne in what was the first leg of their Round of 32 ties in the UEFA Europa League as he urged him to continue his good form.

TRANSFER NEWS

Manchester United will face stiff opposition in their attempts to sign highly rated Torino striker Andrea Belotti, who has impressed this season with 17 goals in 21 appearances in the Italian Serie A.

This was made known by popular transfer site Transfer Market Web, who added that other European giants such as German champions Bayern Munich, Arsenal, Manchester City, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, AS Roma, and Liverpool are all in the hunt to seal the signature of Belotti who recently signed a new deal.

Belotti, who is an Italian international, penned a new deal late last year at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino with the new deal taking him up to 2021 with an astonishing release clause of £84m. The huge buyout clause could be a big problem for other clubs but Manchester United have the money to spend and would be more than ready to meet the young attacker’s hefty price tag.
