Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku cutting World Cup break short to join team

Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku cutting World Cup break short to join team

Goals from Alexis Sanchez and Ander Herrera helped United end on a positive note as Mourinho fielded a largley inexperienced side against the Spanish giants. "I think I am not going to get two".

United put in a sub-standard performance against Liverpool in MI, but the club's manager excused the defeat by saying that the squad available to him was a shadow of that he would expect to have when the season starts.

It has been claimed that there is a clause in players' contracts that they are "entitled to a break of five weeks in over the year, of which three weeks may be consecutive" and that "clubs should not unreasonably withhold permission, subject to club commitments and global commitments".

"I gave my club a list of five names a few months ago".

"He wants even his players who have personal commitments to be here". "I think it's possible I'm going to have one. So I tried it and it was a very lovely goal". That's another thing, but this is not my squad, this is not even half my squad, or 30 per cent of it.

And reports on Monday night suggested that his rant has had a devastating effect on the United squad as a whole, not the news supporters want to hear on the eve of the new season.

"So what did this game give me?"

Shaqiri, 26, did the heavy lifting on the play, outmuscling a United defender and then slipping a pass back to Sturridge who made it 2-1.

I think it was a week after he finished the World Cup, so I said: 'No, no, no. Go!'

The injury to Serbia's World Cup midfielder Matic, who is now back in England after surgery, is another blow to Mourinho, who lost captain Antonio Valencia to a calf injury earlier in the tour.

Several players from United's first-choice starting line-up, including Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and Jesse Lingard, are resting after the World Cup and could miss the opening league fixture against Leicester City in less than two weeks' time.

Aside from the pair, United have had tentative links with Real Madrid's Raphael Varane, Bayern's Jerome Boateng and Milan Skriniar from Inter Milan but they remain outsiders for the moment to strengthen the heart of the United backline.
