José Mourinho: Manchester United must channel Roger Federer spirit against Young Boys

José Mourinho: Manchester United must channel Roger Federer spirit against Young Boys

Manchester United for several decades have been considered one of the top teams in Europe however since the exit of Sir Alex Ferguson their Champions League performances have been incredibly poor and that is only if they have qualified for the illustrious competition.

Rashford has only started one of Manchester United's opening five games, while the England worldwide has come off the bench three times.

The 20-year-old's career has been at the centre of a debate amongst pundits and critics.

Axed by Chelsea less than a year later, Mourinho took over at United and won the Europa League in his first season.

Former Manchester United defender Ferdinand believes neither Mourinho nor Rashford are to blame for the evolving situation at Old Trafford.

"I think it's premature to talk about our chances when we haven't even played our first match", he added. "I think it's been blown out of proportion", Ferdinand told ESPN.

United are back in Premier League action, meanwhile, on Saturday when they host Wolves (3pm). But I just want to remind you, in advance, that we can only start with XI, so when tomorrow you see the team you could try to speak about the ones that are going to play and not the ones that are not going to play.

Josh Gordon to be released by Cleveland Browns on Monday
Gordon posted an Instagram story later Saturday in which he thanked the Browns and their fans. But he missed all of 2015 for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.

"Right now, learning the game off the left hand side is ideal with Romelu Lukaku as the focal point and just playing off him suits Rashford". "I never listen to stupid things like this they say". In terms of building confidence, that's not a great place to start from.

"You can bring in Lukaku, you can bring in Sanchez".

The 8/11 (1.73) quote from bet365 for the men from Manchester to score more than once may prove popular, while the same firm go 13/8 (2.63) that there is more than one goal before half time. I'm Manchester United, I'm Manchester United through and through.

The United boss has told his players that reputation means nothing - particularly after Atletico Madrid, finalists in 2014 and 2016, failed to progress from the group stage last season.

Marouane Fellaini has been instrumental in the last two games for United.

José Mourinho has called on his players to show the professionalism and fighting spirit of Roger Federer as they look to begin their Champions League campaign with victory on an artificial surface in Bern.
