I called through to Mrs Palmer in the next room.
Myles : “Jose’s parked the bus in Madrid.”
Jan : “Is that what he said?”
Myles: “No but that’s what his team selection says.”
Mourinho hasn’t started Rashford but the dynamic youngster could still be his matchwinner from the bench.
Liverpool could only draw with Spartak last night but mighty Manchester United might be strong enough to beat CSKA in Moscow.
However, the cautious Special One likes to see the pitch and the atmosphere and the formation and firepower of his opponents.
He doesn’t want people saying, “Oh, Jose got outsmarted last night.”
And he doesn’t like conceding goals, or even conceding chances. Never has, never will.
