Manchester United Fans Will Love Jose Mourinho's Latest Comments On Luke Shaw

"Very, very positive performance, especially with the ball going forward", he said of Shaw.
But after Shaw's dazzling performance last night, there is a chance Mourinho could change his plans regarding Rose and stick to the 22-year-old former Southampton player.
Shaw has been a peripheral figure at Old Trafford this season but got his chance to impress in what was effectively a meaningless game for the Red Devils.
Unsurprisingly given his lack of game time, Shaw succumbed to cramp late in the second half and opted to play the remaining 15 minutes in a more reserved manner, sitting back and allowing other players to attack down the left flank, yet that should take nothing away from his overall contribution. "The way he plays for the team is incredible. I would always pick my strikers to score the goals and it was good for him to score".
"I hope there's a future for him, a couple of years ago I thought we were signing possibly the best left-back in the world". At half-time we were playing well and I was not unhappy.
Shopping centre giants Hammerson and Intu to merge
THE owner of Merry Hill shopping centre has been bought in a £3.4billion takeover by the owners of Birmingham's Bull Ring. Hammerson shareholders will own 55% of the combined firm and Intu investors the rest.
"The team in the second half, they showed the desire of not qualifying with a defeat, we could lose four or five nil and qualify but that was not the objective - the objective was to play well and win and we managed both".
Considering Manchester United could still face German giants Bayern Munich, Serie A champions Juventus or back-to-back Champions League holders Real Madrid, the prospect of facing an elite club should be more of a concern for the ever-confident Mourinho. Some fine individual performances, some brilliant moments.
"I'm not the luckiest guy with draws, so it's better I shut up", he added jokingly.
"The boys have played professionally and qualified the way we wanted to qualify". I have to focus on the English competitions. The England worldwide joined Man United from Southampton for an eye watering £27 million back in 2014.
