Read The Best Quotes From Jose Mourinho’s Press Conference Ahead Of Manchester United’s Fenerbahce Visit

Manchester United

With Manchester United stuck in the Premier League doldrums, a big win away to Fenerbahce would be a much-needed boost to the squad.

Jose Mourinho spoke to the press on Wednesday afternoon ahead of Thursday’s clash with the Turkish giants.

Read the best quotes from the Special One as his side prepare for an important Europa League group stage game.

One of the first questions up was, unsurprisingly, regarding Mark Clattenburg’s dreadful refereeing performance as the Reds were held to a scoreless draw with Burnley.

When asked if he wanted to comment on the events of Saturday, he was quick to move on. Upon it being brought up again, he simply said:

“Next question”

Also on the agenda was Phil Jones, United’s start to the Europa League and the importance of the competition.

He also delivered a worrying update on Antonio Valencia, out injured with a fractured arm.

The former Porto boss then addressed the return to training of Bastian Schweinsteiger.

It appears that Basti is there to do little more than make up the numbers rather than get any time on the pitch. He also suggested that his return is also allowing him to gain fitness to make the German able to compete when he leaves Old Trafford.

Matteo Darmian followed his boss at the media conference meaning the Italian will start the match, in keeping with Jose’s policy.

Manchester United released their 21-man squad for the game earlier this morning with a number of surprise decisions. Memphis Depay was left out after he reportedly underperformed in training as rumours swirl of a January exit for the young Dutchman.

United take on Fenerbahce at 6PM tomorrow night with their group finely balanced.
