Mourinho urges Pogba to lead by example against Valencia

"First of all, let me send a message to my lovers and say I play Champions League 14 years and qualify 14 times". Neville said, "You can argue whether he has got the right programme and then you start to question your coaching staff and things like that, but I really do question that".

Prizes include, a trip to Old Trafford to watch Man United take on Liverpool in the Premier League, tickets to Ireland's home games in the Six Nations, All Ireland football and hurling final tickets and much more.

Like Mourinho, Valencia manager Marcelino García Toral finds himsellf under mounting pressure, with Los Che now 14th in the La Liga table - and their form in Europe has not been much better.

"Yes, even the numbers, the stats that for me are not fundamental but sometimes they give us, they support our feelings, they support our ideas", said Mourinho, whose job is reportedly under threat from Tottenham's Mauricio Pochettino. They broke the world transfer record to sign Paul Pogba and he's had some good moments, he's had some great moments; the performance against City away last season when they came back from 2-0 down to win 3-2 but the consistency is just not there. Prior to that, they will play against Valencia.

"(We are) still waiting for conclusions, still waiting for people like Martial, Smalling, Jones - people with these kind of doubts", Mourinho said.

"We have players that need to play, we have players that deserve to play". Let us know in the comments section below. We play with high full-backs and, when you've got full-backs who can attack and defend, it's brilliant.

Manchester United are set to travel to Valencia without a host of first-team regulars after a number of Jose Mourinho's squad sat out training on Tuesday morning.

As a result, Mourinho has finally been given the green light to bring in yet another centre-back to shore up the Manchester United defence.

"I know the history, the boys in the squad know the history".

After making his league debut off the bench at Southampton last weekend, 19-year-old Dalot impressed on his first start against Arsenal.

"I think he is fantastic", Mourinho added.

Valencia and Manchester United are meeting for the eighth time in the Champions League - with the English club never having lost (winning twice and drawing five).
