Man Utd news: Mourinho provides KEY Pogba fitness update, Sanchez motivation and assesses Sevilla

Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho spoke to the media on Tuesday evening ahead of his side’s clash with Sevilla in the Champions League.

The two sides meet in Spain for the first leg of their last-16 tie, and the Portuguese tactician will undoubtedly be desperate to see his side come away with a positive result to take back to Old Trafford.

In key news, he has confirmed that midfielder Paul Pogba will be fit to feature having been sidelined by an illness, with the Frenchman seen taking part in a training session on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, he also spoke on Alexis Sanchez’s motivation after his January switch from Arsenal as the Chilean international is seemingly relishing playing in the Champions League again.

He’ll be a key figure for the Red Devils if they wish to make a deep run in the competition this year, and with his pace, technical quality and decisiveness in the final third, he’ll be expected to play an important role against Sevilla.

Meanwhile, Mourinho also paid tribute to the Spanish outfit and coach Vincenzo Montella, who took over earlier this season after being sacked by AC Milan.

Nevertheless, the Italian tactician has evidently done enough to impress Mourinho, as he accepts that his side will come up against a well-organised team in Sevilla and it will likely prove to be a difficult contest.

Time will tell if they are able to see off Montella and his men, as it will be crucial in their season and hunt for trophies.
