    But Mourinho insists the 20-year-old is fit and available for Sunday’s clash against West Ham.

    ‘He [Martial] was okay for this game, it was just an option [not to pick […]

    Mkhitaryan embarrasses Mourinho with outstanding display

    Manchester United fans will feel they had more reason than usual to tune in to tonight’s Europa League clash against Feyenoord, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan finally handed a start by Jose Mourinho.

    The 35-year-old appeared to grab the defender’s neck and shout at him during the incident, which may still be retrospectively punished.
