In the build-up to Tuesday's goalless Champions league draw against Valencia, it was claimed United's Ecuadorian right-back was no longer on speaking terms with Mourinho after he was criticised for not attending the Derby match.

"You would be getting another reason to criticise me, I think you have had enough".

"The players tried, they raised the level of their efforts".

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho called for his players to play for "the crest" before their Champions League stalemate with Valencia.

After executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward denied Mourinho the chance to sign a centre-back over the summer, the United boss has continued to criticise his lack of depth at the back in nearly every press conference.

"I think there are things that are hard for me to say".


Valencia struggled to create chances as Michy Batshuayi muscled his way around United defenders constantly giving them trouble though they managed to hold out their attacks.

United sit 10th in the Premier League, nine points behind pacesetters Manchester City and Liverpool.

United's second-place finish last term flattered their cagey performances, but the formula - heavily reliant on goalkeeper David De Gea's consistent heroics - was less likely to yield success this season. Our attacking players are not in their best moment of confidence and individual performance level, so we thought with three or four chances we would score and win the game, which we didn't.

TUKO.co.ke previously reported that Pogba had reportedly threatened to force his way out of Manchester United in January if Mourinho remains the manager at the club. "It will be good for the team if we can beat Newcastle".

If United decide to cut their losses, where does Mourinho go next?
