JOSE MOURINHO has insisted that Newcastle United's successful taming of Paul Pogba last week was achieved despite the fact the French midfielder was playing in his preferred position.

Mourinho hit back at what believes are "lies" and "bulls***" regarding the France worldwide before he later talked about his desire to strengthen the position in the next transfer window.

Carrick is set to retire and move up into a coaching role at Old Trafford at the end of the current season.

"If you are going to play in midfield, you should be able to play in a two or a three", former United captain Roy Keane said about Pogba, in his role as a TV pundit. "We had a hard game in the league here and we were well prepared and everyone was up for it from the start".

"This is Hamilton's first inclusion in a first-team squad and we can confirm the youngster will wear the no.48 shirt at the John Smith's Stadium, where the FA Cup fifth-round tie is scheduled".

"Some of you (the media) keep saying that we are going to buy that striker, that winger, that left winger, that right winger". I would like somebody to tell me in which position they think Pogba played against Newcastle.

One man who will benefit from Carrick's retirement is Scott McTominay, and the United club captain has been especially impressed with the form of the academy graduate. Carrick was a regular fixture for Jose Mourinho last season and was a pivotal part in United's pursuit of EFL Cup and the UEFA Europa League glory.

"And when he is not playing at a good level the team is not as good as the team can be". He was playing phenomenal after that and before that, he had a red card against Arsenal probably in his best match and the team's best moment.

Speaking ahead of Man United's clash with Huddersfield Town, Parker noted that perhaps using Pogba as a No.10 would provide a solution.

The situation soon settled down as United got back down to business to see out the game and book a place in the FA Cup quarter-finals.

"It is black or white".

"This win is important for us and starts us off for a good week, hopefully".

"Sevilla is half of a knockout, so not so crucial as Huddersfield, but nearly".

In an emotional leaving speech, the Blues legend said: "I am going to come back here one day supporting this team".
