Mourinho: Why This Man Utd Star Hasn't Played This Season

Jose Mourinho: Why This Manchester United Star Hasn't Played This Season

By Keegan Kruger - Sep 20, 2017 06:00 PM @KeeganKruger

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has explained why one of his top performers from last season is yet to feature for the first team in this campaign.

Barca To Sign Man Utd Wonderkid?

Red Devils club captain Michael Carrick is yet to play a single minute of competitive football for the Old Trafford side in the current campaign, a decision Mourinho has now elaborated on.

"(Sergio) Romero played the Europa League final which was the game of the season for us, and he's not playing. Ander Herrera was the player of the season, and he is not starting matches. That's life in big clubs," the Portuguese tactician said, as quoted by the Daily Express.

"We gave (Carrick) a contract because we think he is a good player, we think he is an important player.

"He is just in a team where, at this moment, (Nemanja) Matic and (Marouane) Fellaini are in the best form that I've ever seen them. I never saw Matic playing so well, I've never seen Fellaini play so well.

"He's in a team with these two guys playing phenomenal, so for Carrick and Ander, it's just patience.

"Their time will arrive, and they're going to be important players, for sure. That's the team, that's the squad, we can only play with 11 guys."

Did Mourinho give Carrick the armband or it was the management coz I don't think as a coach you choose a captain whom isn't guaranteed game time?
