Juventus Loss Proves How Far Pogba, Manchester United Are From The Top

Posted October 27, 2018

The Belgian worldwide was widely criticised after United were beaten 1-0 at home by Juventus in midweek, extending his goal drought to eight games.

The Frenchman is said to be keen to link up with former Old Trafford favourite Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus stadium in January, with the France worldwide still a popular figure at his former side. I think we had a spell in the first half where we got on top and, especially in the second half, we were on the front foot.

The Belgium striker has yet to score any goal in his last 8 appearances for United despite seeing enough of games under manager Jose Mourinho.

United have been locked in negotiations with Martial's representatives for over six months and the club had recently grown confident that the 22-year-old would sign a long-term deal.

Sharpe told talkSPORT: "I've never seen a centre forward with such a bad touch".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is reportedly livid with the club's higher ups once again, this time due to a lack of private security offered to himself and the players prior to their midweek defeat to Juventus. The players must be relaxed and concentrated before a game.

"Could I play (Marcus) Rashford there?"

Mourinho believes Woodward has damaged United's title chances by failing to bring in sufficient reinforcements and a row has played out in public between the two figures.

Jose Mourinho's side are now sat 10th in the Premier League table, are out of the Carabao Cup and have dropped five points across their last two Champions League outings against Valencia and Juventus.

"The players need to know me and know my movement. I will prepare during the week they don't have doubts".

Manchester United will be without Alexis Sanchez will not feature for Manchester United against Juventus.

Mourinho appeared to aim another barb at United's board for not investing in defenders as he expanded on his praise for Juve's defensive duo.
