Jose Mourinho admits he's "worried" about Marouane Fellaini's Man Utd contract situation

I do hope that I can play for him again one day.

Mourinho and Pochettino go head-to-head at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon, sitting level on points after nine rounds of Premier League fixtures.

"So, contrary to some imaginary sources that tell you everything we do here, I can promise you that since that match I didn't speak one single second about that match because there is no need".

"Maybe it is to try and sell books, maybe his ghost-writer wants to make some money".

As per reports spreading throughout the English media, a swap deal involving Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur defenders Luke Shaw and Danny Rose is looking like an increasingly realistic possibility.

Mourinho made it crystal clear the poor attitude displayed by his team in their surprising, and first, defeat of the season at Huddersfield will not be seen again.

'I think with Southampton he achieved the impossible.

Another consideration for United is the imminent return of Marcos Rojo from injury, with the Argentina worldwide defender also preferred by Mourinho, pushing Shaw further down the left-back pecking order.

"I just have a very good relationship with him".

"He needs two, three, four, five or six matches in a row to play, to make mistakes, to get conditioned, to get match fitness and I can not give him that". After the victory over Swansea City FC, Herrera said that what happened was just in the heat of the moment and the team has forgotten.

The Untied boss brought up the Fellaini situation when quizzed about whether out-of-favour Luke Shaw would use the optional extra year in his contract.

Shaw signed a four-year deal when he swapped St Mary's for Old Trafford, but United are set to trigger a one-year extension that will keep him at the club until 2019.

"Because Fellaini finishes his contract and Luke Shaw doesn't".
