Paul Pogba misses training ahead of Champions League clash against Sevilla

Paul Pogba misses training ahead of Champions League clash against Sevilla

Manchester United host Spanish side Sevilla at Old Trafford tonight in the Champions League.

Mourinho is now in his second season in charge at United, having won two trophies and a Community Shield in his first campaign.

"If we go through to the quarter-final draw, it doesn't matter the opponent - for us or for Sevilla - will always be one of the big names in European football, but we will try".

Jose Mourinho briefed the media on Monday ahead of the game.




The fashion in which it was achieved irked fans but they've had some results to savour since then with 2-1 victories over Chelsea and Liverpool. "So I think his humble nature is what is making him a good player for us".

Now the Manchester Evening News claim he has passed a late fitness test and is in the matchday squad, though whether he gets in the side is a different matter given how well United played in Pogba's absence. There have been 30 previous occasions in which a first leg has been drawn 0-0 since the competition moved into the Champions League format in 1992, and the team playing away first has gone on to progress 21 times at a 70 per cent success rate.

Of course, the league titles races in England, France and Germany were all done and dusted by Christmas, with Italy's Serie A the only genuine title race among Europe's big hitting leagues.

"I read some quotes from the worst manager in the history of the Premier League", Mourinho told reporters, according to the club's website, referring to De Boer. "If he was coached by Frank, he would learn how to lose because he lost every game". "I'm really happy with Marcus".
