Jose Mourinho claims Manchester United “cannot walk from the bed to the toilet”

Date Posted,April 29, 2017

Jose Mourinho claims his Manchester United stars can’t even “walk from the bed to the toilet” without suffering an injury.

United endured two more layoffs in their 1-1 draw with Swansea with Luke Shaw and Eric Bailly both forced off early.

Left back Shaw was withdrawn after just nine minutes and centre back Bailly after 61 minutes – both with suspected ankle knacks.

The defensive injury list now stands at SIX – with Marcos Rojo, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Timothy Fosu-Mensah already sitting out of action.

Mourinho, who had Juan Mata back from a groin operation, is also without Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

“I don’t know about the injuries,” Mourinho said. “I think Luke Shaw’s must be a big injury, because to leave the pitch after 10 minutes I am expecting a very big injury.

“At the moment, we cannot walk from the bed to the toilet without breaking a leg.

“I prefer not to speak about Phil Jones and Chris Smalling. I prefer to speak about Juan Mata giving everything to be available. I am grateful for that.

“We will give everything on Thursday. That is sure. Whether we go to the final or not doesn’t matter, I am really happy with the guys.”
