Man Utd boss Mourinho: I select team on merit, not price-tag

Man Utd boss Mourinho: I select team on merit, not price-tag

This has reportedly led the Portuguese to believe that both of these clubs stand a better chance of winning the Premier League title then United.

"So the word is not rotation, it is an opportunity for people, for some people to play and to try to get a place in the team for Spurs".

Mourinho claimed afterwards that he had not been happy after the City result because he knew they would win the league regardless and he accused some of his players of getting carried away.

Despite Pogba under-performing, he is clearly still a world-class player when on song and Mourinho has a history of letting top talent go, only to see them flourish elsewhere.

Promising Hope For Lung Cancer Patients
Doctors already prescribe Keytruda to patients if a blood test shows that they are likely to respond to this drug. Last May, the Food and Drug Administration approved the Keytruda-chemo combination based on an early-stage trial.


The United boss has now vowed to drop some big names ahead of Saturday's Wembley semi-final against Spurs, with changes also in mind for Wednesday's Premier League trip to Bournemouth.

Manchester United won both the Europa League and League Cup in Mourinho's first campaign in charge last season.

"Some of the guys that played [against West Brom] don't have a place in that team [for Bournemouth]".

Mourinho added: "What is the criteria for a manager to choose a team?"

Browns not interested in Dez Bryant
He averaged over 90 receptions for over 1,300 yards and 14 touchdowns the previous three seasons. Bryant caught 69 balls for 838 yards and six touchdowns last season.


"Do you want me to go for the price they cost, their salary, their attractive face?"

United's record signing was widely praised following a dominant performance in the Manchester derby last weekend but was withdrawn with half an hour to go in the Red Devils' defeat against West Brom.

The Red Devils record signing Paul Pogba had put in a match winning performance at the Etihad, but yesterday the enigmatic France worldwide was back to his frustrating best and was hooked on the hour mark after yet another ineffective display.

"I just kept it simple and said "this is what you are" and "this is what you're good at".

Stephanopoulos Grills Kellyanne Conway on Comey Interview: 'That's Not Correct Either'
Many online jumped on Conway's comments Monday morning, saying she admitted that "Trump wouldn't have won without the Comey". It's really hard to follow, which is nothing new for those who track Conway .


Explaining his reasoning behind taking Pogba off, Mourinho said: "I wanted more width, and Paul had a yellow card and before that he had a situation not for a second yellow but you never known in football, so I reacted to that". It is the way you play. You can do it if your team is not losing the ball, but our team was losing the ball so everything was complicated. "Everything was slow. Everyone was one more touch, one more trick, one more flick, one more turn". "In terms of the way he played, he was not worse than some others who were on the pitch for 90 minutes".
