Manchester United are hosting Burton Albion in the EFL Cup, which the Red Devils won last season, and Jose Mourinho had some… explaining to do in the Press conference ahead of this match, talking about team captain Michael Carrick and United ‘Player of the season’ last year, Ander Herrera.
Ander Herrera was Player of the Season and he’s not starting matches. That’s life in big clubs. We gave Carrick a contract because we think he is a good player. We think he is an important player
the Portuguese manager told reporters, first making sure that everyone understands how important he considers both players.
They are just in a team where at this moment Matic and Fellaini are in the best form that I have ever seen them in. I have never seen Matic play so well and I’ve never seen Fellaini play so well
Mourinho said, sending a message to Carrick and Herrera to
stay patient. They are in a team with these two guys who are playing absolutely phenomenally. For Carrick and for Ander it is just patience because their time will arrive. They are going to be important players for sure
were the Man United manager’s words.
