Mourinho is reportedly interested in luring the Germany worldwide to Old Trafford, while FC Barcelona and Liverpool, among others, are also said to be keeping a close watch on the player. "Matic is injured and when I say he is injured, he is injured". He plays tomorrow. All the other players who didn't play the last match they are still out.
Asked about the summer arrival's recent run, Mourinho said that Lindelof performs well when the team perform well, and when the team as a whole suffer, he suffers as well and that has been the pattern so far. "Zlatan needs sometimes very hard work on the muscle area that supports the knee that had the problem".
'I'm going to make a few but not too many changes, ' Mourinho added. "When he works really hard on that, he gets fatigue and you can not play with fatigue".
"When the time for that hard work comes the fatigue comes. More importantly, the others deserve an opportunity to play".
