Mourinho: Why I Dropped This Star Against Bournemouth

Jose Mourinho: Why I Dropped This Star Against Bournemouth

By Keegan Kruger - Dec 14, 2017 08:29 AM @KeeganKruger

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has explained why one of his superstars did not make the bench against Bournemouth on Wednesday night.

Man Utd Star Set For Showdown Talks With Mourinho

The Red Devils returned to winning ways when they beat the Cherries 1-0 at Old Trafford, courtesy of a goal from Romelu Lukaku.

Armenia international Henrikh Mkhitaryan was once again dropped for the clash, and Mourinho has admitted the player has fallen down the pecking order at the club.

"I can only have six (outfield) players on the bench, and I try to have some balance on the bench – I had two defenders and (Daley) Blind who can play in different areas," the Portuguese tactician said, as quoted by the Daily Express.

"I had Ashley Young to cover me all of the wing and the wing-back position.

"I had (Ander) Herrera as a midfield player, Zlatan (Ibrahimovic) as a striker and Marcus (Rashford) as a second striker and winger.

"I played (Anthony) Martial, (Juan) Mata and (Jesse) Lingard in the team.

"To have Micki means that I don’t have one of them and, at this moment, I believe the other ones, they deserve (the chance to play)."

Mkhitaryan will be hoping to return to the matchday squad when Mourinho’s men travel to West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.
