Pereira pleads for more Manchester United chances

Pereira pleads for more Manchester United chances

Manchester United's Paul Pogba was given the chance to show his talent in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night, but after missing a sitter and failing to have an impact on the game, a former Premier League player believes Jose Mourinho should not select him against Liverpool this weekend.

The Serie A giants lost 2-1 at the same time that United fell by the same scoreline in Spain, where a Carlos Soler strike and Phil Jones own goal meant substitute Marcus Rashford's late strike was just a consolation effort.

United were beaten 2-1, a result made all the more disappointing given they could have gone through top of Group H following Juventus' surprise loss to Young Boys. "Today, we played with freshness and bravery, and I'm delighted for them because they have suffered", he said.

Sergio Romero, Antonio Valencia, Eric Bailly, Marcos Rojo, Marouane Fellaini, Andreas Pereira, Fred and Pogba were the eight players to come into the starting line-up.

"They've got to try to win a cup and they've got to try to finish in the top four, which is going to be a tough ask for them".

"I think that to qualify in this group is a success", the United boss said.

That, according to British junior Brexit minister Martin Callanan, is what May wants. "Does this House want to deliver Brexit? ". The British public voted to leave the E.U.in June 2016, with the separation due to become official on March 29 of next year.


"(It) was a good match to play, a match without any kind of pressure, a match in a competition that everybody likes to play. "But finishing second in this group is a success and I don't think that finishing first or second - apart from a couple of clubs who are clearly much better than the others - [means that] the draw will be significantly different".

"And, in the end, my team improved, really, when I made the changes that I didn't want to make, which is a little bit of frustration because I didn't want to play the three players that I played in the second half".

"Jose Mourinho will be fully aware of Liverpool's strengths, nullifying them, sitting deep, not giving them space behind, not letting them win the ball in turnovers in unsafe areas".

"Matic, you are the first ones to make the stats and to say how many minutes he is playing and you are saying week after week that he needs a rest".

Mourinho's team could have been in pot one for the round of 16.

United have the option to extend his current £100,000-a-week deal by a further 12 months before it expires next summer.
