Man Utd News: Jose Mourinho gives team update for Benfica Champions League clash | Football | Sport


Manchester United can seal their passage to the knockout stages of the Champions League with victory over Benfica tomorrow night.

The Red Devils will go into the game brimming with confidence after a huge 1-0 win over Tottenham at the weekend. 

United still have players out, however, with Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo among the players currently out of action.

And Mourinho says the squad for tomorrow’s game will be the same as the one that put Tottenham to the sword on Saturday afternoon.

“I think its the same,” the 54-year-old said. 

“We have one training session just to confirm, at 3pm, but the best scenario is that we have the same players as we had last weekend.”

Speaking yesterday, Mourinho refused to comment on when Pogba would be making his return.

The France international has been out since injuring his hamstring against FC Basel back in September.

But Mourinho is in the dark as to when his £89million man will be gracing the turf again.

“Again, I have no idea, honestly, I have no idea,” Mourinho said. 

“I have no idea, I’m not in control of his recovery process, he’s not training with me, he’s on individual work and not in my group.

“Even under certain conditions, for example Marcos Rojo is working with me, with certain conditions, but he’s working with me. But I would expect Marcos Rojo to be ready to play after the international break. I can predict that because he’s training with me.

“But Paul, I have no idea.”
