Champions League: Mourinho reveals why he dropped Pogba, Lukaku, Sanchez against Young Boys


Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has revealed why he decided not to start Paul Pogba, Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku against Young Boys.

The Red Devils secured their place in the knockout stages of the Champions League, with a 1-0 victory over the Swiss club.

Mourinho made six changes to the team that was held to a goalless draw by Crystal Palace at the weekend.

Striker Lukaku and midfielder Pogba were named on the bench, while Sanchez was left out of the squad altogether.

Asked to explain his team selection before the game, Mourinho told BT Sport: “They are are always asking for Rashford to play, so you cannot complain that Rashford is playing as a number nine.

“And people like Fred, they play, so you cannot complain that Fred is playing.

“So fresh blood, fresh legs, people that did not play in the last match two days ago. I always think that to play after two days is never so easy.

“I try to keep a certain stability in the team, but with fresh people and the three attacking players are Lingard, Rashford and Martial.

“All of them young, all of them fast, all of them are supposedly fresh, so that’s the way we go.”
