Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has said that he has a strong relationship with the club’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward. There were several rumors that Mourinho had a strained relationship with Woodward. This was because of the latter not signing any central defender during the summer transfer window.
However, the Portuguese has insisted that there aren’t any tensions between the two. In a press conference, when asked if he had a good relationship with Woodward, Mourinho replied, “Of course (our relationship is fine). No (problem at all).
Jose Mourinho also talked about Paul Pogba’s comments following the defeat to Brighton last weekend. Pogba said that the team’s attitude was wrong. Mourinho said, “Paul said that so Paul has to answer that. If you want an explanation for Paul’s words, you must get him and ask him.
Mourinho also said that Antonio Valencia, Nemanja Matic, Diogo Dalot and Alexis Sanchez have all returned to training. He would take a final call on their availability for Monday’s game against Tottenham on Sunday. Mourinho said, “Today is still Friday and we will have training on Saturday and Sunday, then the match on Monday. The decision will be made on Sunday but yes, they are training with the team and [Diogo] Dalot also is training with the team for the first time this week so in terms of the medical department, they are almost free.”
