Man Utd news Jose Mourinho says Alexis Sanchez doesn't want to leave

Speaking on Monday evening, Mourinho said: 'He will be out for quite a while.

Victory for Mourinho's men, allied to a Valencia failure to beat Juventus, would see United qualify for the last 16 of European club football's elite competition with a game to spare.

"The solution is that probably I have to make certain choices based on heart and then probably I will play myself".

"Obviously thats what we need to do".

Just as a prime minister or president facing difficulties in the domestic sphere often tends to look for diverting glory on the foreign-policy front, Mourinho is clearly hoping that Champions League success can help gloss over his team's Premier League travails.

Instead, he was left to warn his players that a similarly lethargic showing at home to Swiss side Young Boys on Tuesday could leave United struggling to progress from this season's Champions League group stages.

Macari said on MUTV: "There are a lot of players you like to think that they can step-up but can they?"

"But I think we should also blame ourselves for the result as we started really well and did the most hard thing apart from score - which is to find the spaces to play against a team that is very closed".

If you feel pressure, stay at home. and I don't mean stadium home, I mean home home!"

"But we'll work hard again because we know, given this run, that we can't have any more slip-ups at home again like this. If it is not better I walk", Mourinho added. I want the team to go immediately and it's a bit frustrating'. Probably the fans think José told them to start slow [in recent games] but it's the opposite. I think it is only a matter of time until they go in.
