This Man Utd player needs to become main man under Jose Mourinho

Fenerbahce compounded the woes of Manchester United and their manager Jose Mourinho with a 2-1 victory in the Europa League that ruthlessly exposed the shortcomings of the Premier League giants.

Sow opened the scoring with a spectacular overhead volley after two minutes and things got worse for the visitors when Lens curled home a superb free kick in the second half.

Rooney scored his in the 89th minute, turning, taking a touch and swinging his right foot with power to send the ball on its way.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has been ruled out of the Premier League clash against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday according to the official club website.

United were then forced into a premature change when Pogba, who had earlier taken a strong challenge from Souza, hobbled off to be replaced by Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

"They (Fenerbahce) were playing the Champions League final and we were playing a summer friendly".


"But we started the game sleeping". They're struggling to score goals and to win games of football, with (Daley) Blind and (Marcus) Rojo at centre-half, they nearly need to score three goals, because they look like they're going to give goals away all the time.

"Conceding within two minutes means we are not ready, mentally prepared, focused". United have two matches remaining in the group stages. So, yes, we are in trouble, but these boys are coping well in the last two matches.

The Armenia global - who hadn't played for United since September's 2-1 defeat to Manchester City - replaced Marcus Rashford in the 61st minute but made very little impact.

"Sometimes you are in a period when one chance is enough to win the match", Mourinho said in an interview with www.manutd.com. It was a once in a lifetime strike that not even United keeper David de Gea could react to.

"It is hard to play a game of this difficulty with two left-backs playing in central defence".

It remains to be seen whether Mkhitaryan will be receive any playing time, but he is at least closer to playing than he was this time last week, which will undoubtedly please United fans.
