Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho explains why Marouane Fellaini was withdrawn soon after entering the field against Tottenham on Wednesday night, adding the big man felt something in his knee.
The former Everton midfielder only played seven minutes after coming on to replace Paul Pogba during the second half of United’s 2-0 defeat to Spurs at Wembley.
“I think I was unlucky with Fellaini as I wanted to change a little bit the dynamic of the team,” the United boss told BT Sport.
“After a couple of minutes, he was injured. It’s always the same thing. It is the lateral ligament. I don’t think it’s a big, big thing but he was immediately feeling something and telling us he couldn’t carry on.”
