Mourinho explains why Man United will not sign a striker

Jose Mourinho

The club's £89million record signing has been below par since returning from a hamstring injury in November following more than two months out of action.

Pogba has been left out of the starting XI by Mourinho for United's past three games, a shocking turn of events given that run has included a cup quarterfinal, a vital Champions League tie against Sevilla and a high-profile Premier League meeting with fierce local rivals Liverpool.

Mourinho also praised Lukaku for the continued improvement in his all-round play, as the Belgium star celebrated his 100th goal in the Premier League.

"Ask him when you get a chance what he thinks about it", he told United Kingdom newspapers. "I think credit to [Swansea manager] Carlos [Carvalhal] because he improved the team at half-time but we let it go a bit, probably six or seven players played global football midweek. It's the only thing I can do". "I can not do anything else".

He also denied that the former Juventus man came back too early from injury, saying: "It was a hard injury. In his case, not at all", Mourinho added. His recovery was really, really good'.

"We have Lukaku and Marcus Rashford as number nines, and of course Marcus can play right and left, but Marcus is a striker", Mourinho said.

However Pogba looked a different player when he scored a stunning free-kick, and provided an assist in the midweek when France defeated World Cup hosts Russian Federation by 3-1 at Saint Petersburg.

The Portuguese added after seeing his side cement a second-placed standing: "It would have been ideal if we had could have played the second half as we played the first half".

As per the report, the former Southampton defender reacted to Mourinho's decision by saying: 'Why are you always picking on me?'

"Everything that brings confidence to the players is positive for me, that's what I want", he said. So for me, the Zlatan goodbye moment was more in that direction.
