Mourinho: Shaw? It's Fellaini that 'worries' me

Mourinho, the Manchester United manager, claimed at his pre-match press conference on Friday that despite being linked with a £50 million for Dier during the summer transfer window, eventual recruit Nemanja Matic was always his preferred target.

"He called to ask me about my players - available or not available - so I don't know why should I begin the football match day in a tunnel (speaking to Dier as reported)".

"I'd rather play for Pochettino or Guardiola than Jose".

While Harry Kane misses out as expected due to a hamstring injury, Davinson Sanchez also sits out as Spurs switch to a back four with Eric Dier and Harry Winks set to start ahead of the defence in a 4-2-3-1 formation.

'Maybe it is to try to sell books, maybe his ghostwriter wants to make some money'.

But Mourinho values him highly and said he never entertained the idea of getting rid of him.

Shaw is reportedly anxious that he has no future at Manchester United but it is the big Belgian that concerns Mourinho.

"It's not for me to judge that", said Mourinho. I'd take Pochettino. I think he's done a fantastic job at Tottenham.

Danny Rose, meanwhile, has just recently returned to first-team action for Tottenham, having been out of action since January with a knee problem. "I probably have the player I didn't think it was possible to have, but we got the player I really wanted".

"You can not even be lucky all the time". 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.

"But in terms of the attitude that we didn't like and knowing the players and knowing how good people they are, yes, I believe that was an isolated case".

The 30-year-old Belgian global has flourished under Mourinho and won over sections of the United support who had been critical of him.

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.

The 27-year-old had established himself as one of the finest full-backs in the English top-flight over recent seasons, with his stellar showings before his injury last season having led to heavy links with Manchester United.

"I'm anxious about Fellaini and not about Luke Shaw", he said.

Jose Mourinho was asked about Luke Shaw's future and had no interest, instead offering an opinion about the contract stand-off with Marouane Fellaini.
