Mourinho bemoans lack of 'mad dogs' after United draw

Marcus Rashford set up a pair of goals to answer an early Southampton flurry, as Manchester United drew Saints 2-2 at St. Mary's on Saturday.

He was one of the best players on the pitch, even though he did not record assist or a goal, which is really something considering he has been involved in just four goals since the start of last season. "And you kill the mentality of the good honest people around you", Mourinho reportedly added during his rant at Pogba.

Pogba, 25, returned to the team after being benched for the Red Devils' midweek Champions League victory over Young Boys.

Jose Mourinho has an injury crisis in defence as Chris Smalling has been ruled out with a foot injury while Eric Bailly has a back problem so they join Victor Lindelof on the sidelines.

"We lost so many balls in midfield, so many balls in our transition to the last third that it was hard to have that continuity", Mourinho told BT Sport. "In the second half we went back to losing too many balls in midfield".

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho turned on Paul Pogba in front of the playing group after Saturday's 2-2 draw at Southampton, it has been claimed.

Moscow is also backing pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine where more than 10,000 people have been killed in fighting. The vessels were trying to pass through the Kerch Strait on their way to the Sea of Azov, where Ukraine has two major ports.

The latest clash is just one of a number incidents between the pair, with Pogba having previously been told he would never captain the club again due to his behaviour.

Robben played under "The Special One" throughout Mourinho's initial spell in the Premier League in West London, between 2004 and 2007, helping Chelsea win back-to-back titles and their first in half a century.

Superb strikes from Stuart Armstrong and Cedric had put the hosts 2-0 up before Romelu Lukaku and Ander Herrera brought United level before halftime. I would say the positive examples were Marcus Rashford and Phil Jones.

Michael Obafemi fed Armstrong inside the area and from a tight angle the Scottish worldwide smashed the ball confidently past De Gea for his third goal in two league games.

The former Spurs midfielder stated that the trajectory of both clubs so far this season and in recent years suggests that the move away from Tottenham will be a step down for the player.
