Mourinho reveals what’ll happen to World Cup stars in Manchester United squad

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho has revealed what will happen to World Cup stars in his team at the beginning of the Premier League season.

The Portuguese was unhappy with the early start for this season and declared that he won’t start players returning from the World Cup in the Red Devils’ Aug. 10 opener.

Speaking on RT on Saturday, the former Chelsea boss expressed his displeasure with the small window between the World Cup and the start of the domestic season.

He pointed out that players who participated in Russia won’t be given ample time to fully recover.

“We cannot start the Premier League with our players that were in the World Cup, which is a shame for the most important club competition in Europe,” he said.

United players, who participated in the tournament include Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic, Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard, Marouane Fellaini and David De Gea, among others.

Pogba will file out against Croatia in the final on Sunday while Rashford, Lingard, Fellani, and even Jones played in the third place playoff on Saturday with England and Belgium respectively.

“Three weeks [off], which I think is the minimum that their body and soul needs, and which is the minimum for them to return and think about football again,” Mourinho said.

“To bring them back before that would be, ‘OK, I have you for the first match of the season, but maybe I don’t have you in three or four months.’

“I think three weeks is the minimum they need, which means that they’re going to be back in the week when the Premier League starts, which means they’re not ready to start the Premier League, which is I think difficult to understand, where we could have one more week to prepare everybody.”
