Jose Mourinho, Manchester United’s manager, has revealed that six players will miss the final Champions League clash tomorrow, Tuesday, against CSKA Moscow.
In a pre-match conference ahead of CSKA Moscow’s match, Jose Mourinho confirmed that six players, including Zlatan Ibrahimovic, will miss the final match.
Jose Mourinho confirmed that Nemanja Matic will be out due to an injury, Zlatan Ibrahimovic to rest him due to his long-term injury, Eric Bailly, Marouane Fellaini, Phil Jones and Michael Carrick due to injuries as well.
Jose Mourinho said:” Matic is injured, when he says he is injured, then he is injured. I won’t let him play tomorrow. There are other players who deserve a chance to play as well.”
Mourinho continued:” Zlatan Ibrahimovic isn’t suffering from an injury, but he needs to train well after the long-term injury due to the muscle problems in his knee.”
On the other hand, Jose Mourinho confirmed that Paul Pogba will play tomorrow, who is a major doubt for Manchester City’s match on Sunday due to the red card he got on Saturday against Arsenal in a match where Manchester United won 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium, Arsenal’s home.
