  • Mourinho: Face the pressure or stay at home

United must trigger a 12-month option on De Gea's current contract, which expires at the end of this season, before Jan. 1 to prevent him from being able to talk to foreign suitors in January.

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, fired back at BT Sport pundits Gary Lineker, Paul Scholes and Rio Ferdinand, after Maroune Fellaini's late victor secured Manchester United's passage to the last-16 of the Champions League.

Fellaini's arrival in 2013 as a 27.5 million pounds signing by his former Everton boss David Moyes, was hardly greeted with enthusiasm by United fans who were already underwhelmed by the choice of successor to Alex Ferguson.

"But, in the end, we qualify in a very hard group with one match in hand, suffering a lot, but we did it".

The late win after another sub-par performance at least ensured United qualified from Group H as they moved on to 10 points, two behind leaders Juventus who beat Valencia 1-0 to eliminate the Spaniards who have five.

"For some of my lovers, I just want to say for the ones that like stats - 14 season in the [Champions League], 14 times qualify through the group phases. the season I didn't play Champions League, I won the Europa League", he said.

It's not the first time Mourinho has taken his frustration out on a water bottle. "I won the Champions League".

"If I saw my manager react like that, I would be absolutely livid!" Do you think I should smile?'

"I think the mood is good".

With Mourinho, no one really knows, but one thing is for sure.

It is not just critics that irritate Mourinho but questions, too, having raised eyebrows before the game by dropping Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba to the bench, with Alexis Sanchez missing out entirely.

"He's the type of coach where he would be honest with you and tell you how it is, and if you can not deal with that, I mean, that's a big problem".

"We don't score enough goals but is not about Marcus".

Mourinho's tendency to turn to Fellaini in times of need is part of a bigger problem; the Portuguese is blatantly failing to get the best out of his attacking talent.
