What United Are Doing To Prevent De Gea From Leaving In January

As good as the goal was, Mourinho's celebration was even better.

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, fired back at BT Sport pundits Gary Lineker, Paul Scholes and Rio Ferdinand, after Maroune Fellaini's late victor secured Manchester United's passage to the last-16 of the Champions League.

Fellaini's goal secured United's place in the round of 16 of the Champions League with a game to spare.

Jose Mourinho explains the emotions behind throwing a drinks rack after Manchester United's victor against Young Boys and says he is proud of his side's performance.

De Gea (below) has won only four major trophies since signing from Atletico Madrid for £18.9m in 2011, joining a club that had reached the Champions League final three times in four years. "I controlled the ball, if it touched my hand it was not on goal".

After all the commotion in the media between Mourinho and his players, those comments should go down a treat with the Portuguese.

"If I saw my manager react like that, I would be absolutely livid", Gary Lineker said on BT Sport after Mourinho failed to disguise his irritation in the fifth minute last night.

"But really I had a conversation with the coach about it and I said: 'Listen, it's been a long year and also with the World Cup, I felt a bit exhausted'".


David de Gea is open to staying at Manchester United if the club offer him a five-year contract worth around £350,000 a week to match top earner Alexis Sanchez.

"He said I didn't look happy, that I was angry".

"Never one of my teams stays behind the group phase".

"We've just scored a goal but we're talking about Jose Mourinho's reaction", Ferdinand added in the studio.

Paul Pogba's rift with Jose Mourinho, which culminated with the Frenchman being stripped of vice-captaincy, may be on the verge of starting again as the Frenchman was dropped from the starting lineup for the first time this season, notwithstanding injury issues.

"What he said the other day, that was more a generational thing".

The home side's best effort came in the opening minutes of the match when Marcus Rashford's chip from Jesse Lingard's through ball was sent over the bar.
