West Brom manager Tony Pulis has backed Jose Mourinho to get Manchester United back on track and feels the Red Devils are heading in the right direction under the Portuguese.
Jose Mourinho has told Paul Pogba to reduce his commercial work and concentrate on his Manchester United career.
And it is a similar kind of sentiment he is expressing now. If they get injuries they can put in replacements who have cost a lot of money. We want people that if I call or Mr Woodward calls some guy or some agent, we want people who are immediately engaged or dreaming about coming.
The United boss made three changes from the team that beat Middlesbrough 3-1 with Marcus Rojo, Henrik Mkhitaryan and Anthony Martial returning.
It is little wonder Mourinho admits that there is no further room for error.
What is yet to fall into place is the attacking setup.
"If you compare our situation with our opponents, West Bromwich Albion, only one player on worldwide duty".
Pogba became the world's most expensive player last summer having joined Manchester United from Juventus for a world-record € 105 million transfer fee. Those are big losses, especially against such a solid defensive side, but United still have the talent to win.
"We miss easy chances, we have moments or periods to push really, but then a couple of players they disappear and there are 10 minutes when you don't see them".
United are already linked with high profile players and that included Barcelona star Neymar, which has been ruled out by Mourinho after he labelled it as an "impossible" signing. "I think clearly they are long-term injuries, and Pogba I have no idea". "We need to kill opponents off and this is déjà vu all season".
Schweinsteiger could make his MLS debut against Montreal Impact on Saturday, when United host West Brom at Old Trafford - the first of nine matches Mourinho has to deal with in April.
Despite both men's absence possibly leaving his side with just two natural first-team centre-backs for the rest of the season, José Mourinho insisted that players on the shelf are "not important" because it's the players who are "ready to play" that mean the most.
