Mourinho picks three players who can move into first team
Jose Mourinho has picked a couple of the club’s young prospects who can make their way into the first team in the near future.
The Portuguese tactician has been criticised in the past for not being able to nurture youngsters over the years despite his undoubted success in consistently winning silverware.
However, the United boss has defended his ability to develop young talent, tipping the likes of Scott McTominay, Demetri Mitchell and Andreas Pereira to break into the first team soon.
“More than half of their [Real Madrid] team – which is their first team because they were only missing Ronaldo and Ramos – all these guys started with me and had debuts with me,” said Mourinho.
“They came into the first team with me, trained with me at 15 and 16 years old. Nacho, Casemiro, Carvajal, Morata, Marcelo was 20.
“So probably in a few years Manchester United will also have half a dozen of these kids.
“I think Scott McTominay and Demetri Mitchell are also kids to have a future in the club. And Andreas Pereira is back.
“So when the kids are good and have potential, there is no problem.”https://www.fanchesterunited.com/mourinho-picks-three-players-can-break-first-team/
