Didier Drogba: Jose Mourinho admires Paul Pogba a lot

Chelsea legend, Didier Drogba has stated that the tensioned relationship that seems to exist between United manager, Jose Mourinho, and star player, Paul Pogba is because the Portuguese tactician believes so much in the French midfielder’s talent and is quite keen on his development.

The Man United pair has been consistent in newspapers’ headlines in recent weeks as many believe that Mourinho isn’t happy with Pogba’s display lately which has led to him being dropped from the starting X1 a number of times now.

His national team boss, Didier Deschamps admits that the former Juventus player cannot be happy with his situation at Old Trafford, with Scott McTominay having been preferred by Mourinho in recent games.

Drogba, who played a significant role in Mourinho’s outstanding Chelsea side of 2004/2005, spoke to Telefoot about his ex-manager’s behavior and played down any suggestion that the two are not getting along.

“It’s been hot between us [Drogba and Mourinho],” the Ivorian said. “But Jose is never going to attack people he does not like.

“He likes Paul a lot. That’s why he’s given him a lot of responsibilities.”

The 25-year old has featured in 27 games for United this season, scoring three goals and providing 10 assists.

The Red Devils were dumped out at the Round of 16 stage of this season’s UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night after a 2-1 loss to Sevilla at Old Trafford, but the former Real Madrid Boss has taken a lot of positives from the response of his players after the heart-breaking loss, and they look set to bounce back with a win to seal their place for the semi-finals in Wembley.

He said: “I’m happy with what I saw from my players after the match, I’m happy that people were sad and that people were frustrated. I’m really happy with that. I’m happy we were exactly on the same page, and I’m happy to see the boys coming back again on my page.”
“We don’t have many, many days to be sad,” he said. “We don’t have many days for that, so I’m happy that the players come back exactly like myself. We train very well. We always train very, very well.
“We don’t need a reaction to train better than we do because the training, the professionality, the enthusiasm, the organization, every training session with us since day one, since I arrived, the players, on that, absolutely are brilliant.”

Mourinho tags former Crystal Palace Manager as worst in Premier League history

Mourinho tags former Crystal Palace Manager as worst in Premier League history

Manchester United Manager, Jose Mourinho has mocked former Crystal Palace Manager, Frank de Boer tagging him as the worst the Premier League has ever seen after the Dutchman questioned his handling of Marcus Rashford.
The young England International scored two brilliant goals as he stole the show in United’s 2-1 Premier League victory over rivals, Liverpool on Saturday in his first start since December.
De Boer, who was fired from his position as Palace manager last September after going seven games without scoring a single goal or securing a point, said it was a pity that the young sensation had a manager like Mourinho as he believes that the former Chelsea Manager will frustrate the progress he [Rashford] has enjoyed in recent seasons.

However, Mourinho had enough time to answer De Boer’s criticism of his methods when he addressed a news conference ahead of United’s Champions League Round of 16 second-leg showdown with Sevilla seemingly holding De Boer responsible for Palace’s terrible run which finally came to an end after he [De Boer] was fired and Roy Hodgson was appointed.
“I read some quote from the worst manager in the history of the Premier League, Frank de Boer,” Mourinho began. “Seven matches, seven defeats, zero goals.
“He was saying it is not good for Marcus Rashford to have to be coached by me.
“If Frank coached him he would learn how to lose because he lost every game.”

I hold no grudge against Chelsea – Mourinho

I hold no grudge against Chelsea – Mourinho

Former Chelsea Manager, Jose Mourinho who was fired by the club he helped win the league three times in his two different stints with the club has insisted that he held no grudge whatsoever with the London club as they travel to face his current side, Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.
A victory for Mourinho against his beloved “Chelsea” would take the Red Devils back to the second spot which is currently occupied by Liverpool on the League table. The Portuguese tactician admits that what is vital to him is picking all three points as he attaches no special significance to the encounter.
While speaking with Sky Sports News, Mourinho stressed his consideration of the game as a usual Premier League match that teams play week in week out.
He said: “When you leave a club, what keeps that extra feeling of playing against your previous club is when you leave with a negative feeling or have stones in your shoes.
“I didn’t leave with negative feelings. As a professional, I always accept decisions from the club.
“I gave everything I could to the club so no negative feelings. It’s just a very important match because we are separated by just a few points and we have similar ambitions.”
When questioned about his opinion on the strength of the current Chelsea squad, the former Real Madrid Boss replied: “They are very strong defensively and showed that a few days ago against probably the most talented team [Barcelona].
“In attack they have individuality and I know them very well because I coached all of them – [Alvaro] Morata at Real Madrid, [Eden] Hazard, Pedro, and Willian at Chelsea.
“Individually they can all resolve matches.”

Title race isn’t over – Guardiola

High-flying Manchester City Manager, Pep Guardiola has responded to rival, Jose Mourinho’s claim that the race for the League title is over after his side suffered an embarrassing 2-0 defeat to Spurs during the week.
The Citizens only need to come out victorious in eight more matches to be crowned as Champions of England and they could lift the title if they win their clash with Mourinho’s team Manchester United on April 7.
The legendary Portuguese Manager concluded that City’s 15-point lead in February implies that the race is over as it is impossible to catch up and the best his team can do is to claim the second place.
However, the former Barcelona Boss has dismissed such declarations, stating that the league is still long from being won.
“Not yet (it’s not over),” he said. “There are 13 games, 39 points to play, a 15-point lead, so it’s not over.
“We have an amazing run of games to play.
“We can’t deny how complicated games with Burnley, Stoke, Goodison, Arsenal, Tottenham, United and Chelsea will be. Definitely, it’s not over.”
City could extend their lead at the top to 18 points with a victory over Burnley in their early kickoff game on Saturday before second-placed United face Huddersfield later in the day.
According to Mourinho, he said: “We have to try to finish second.
“We are in this position all season – we were first for a few weeks and then we were always second.
“We are better than last season in every aspect – points, position, a number of goals scored, conceded so we have to try to stay there.
“The fight is open for second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth, but is practically closed for the first.”
