Henrikh Mkhitaryan criticised by Mourinho as Borussia Dortmund show interest

He started this season very well and after that, step by step, he was disappearing. That was enough [to drop him]. Everybody works to have a chance. "It's as simple as that".

Mourinho said Mkhitaryan's performances have been "decreasing step by step".

Getting back to what Mourinho had to say about playing with too many forwards, it will be interesting to see what people have to say about this, i.e. how it plays into the narrative that he's too defensive minded.

'It's hard for me to be on the bench and don't know when Pogba has to be changed, ' said Mourinho. Both times I returned a month early, watching the team and stating with confidence I would reclaim my place. "I think they were good from minute one until the last minute". I can not complain about the dedication or the motivation. My boys they didn't play well but they gave everything. I made a decision to play Marcus Rashford and Martial together. He's scoring more goals than last season. He has more minutes on the pitch.

"The three players that played with Lukaku, they didn't get the ball, nor successful on the one against one". They have different kinds of qualities. We had awesome chances a couple of days ago [against Basel in the Champions League] and we couldn't score, today we did it.
