DEBATE: Jose Mourinho’s use of Marouane Fellaini - embarrassing or justified?

DEBATE: Jose Mourinho’s use of Marouane Fellaini - embarrassing or justified?

But Jose Mourinho, speaking soon after De Gea had saved his team from humiliation against Young Boys, revealed that he knew the goalkeeper wanted to stay at United.

"My players were really exhausted at the end and that's what we wanted: it means they gave everything". "I won the Champions League.

So I'm very happy to be here at this great team and very happy to be working with him too".

That meant familiar failings in front of goal were able to be brushed aside by Mourinho, who instead focused on the bigger picture in a tournament he has previously won with both Porto and Inter.

Manchester United, one of - if the - biggest club in Europe, are now closer to the relegation battle than they are to the Premier League title race. I was not unhappy with the players, but frustrated with the fact that we couldn't score.

"We didn't play for that, we didn't play for 0-0 or to be in trouble until the last minute". "It is very hard for us to score goals".

"I kind of enjoyed it", he said, ahead of United's Champions League clash with Young Boys on Tuesday.

He has hit the net just four times in all competitions this season, and he has revealed that his conversation with Mourinho has led to him reassessing his own goals as he bids to fire United back into contention in the Premier League.

"Without David [de Gea's] save, no winning goal", said Mourinho, in reference to his goalkeeper's goal line stop from Ulisses Garcia.

"I always try to give everything for the team whether I start or don't start".

"Now, I must say as a centre-forward, if I saw my manager react like that I would be absolutely livid". Rashford certainly did not have his best game but there was no need from this reaction from his manager, a reaction that certainly will not have helped the young forward.

And it appeared Mourinho was still in a spiky mood immediately after the game.

But the Portuguese coach was less than impressed with the 21-year-old just five minutes in when Rashford raced onto Jesse Lingard's flick but dinked his finish over the bar with just goalkeeper David von Ballmoos to beat.
