Mourinho tells United to follow Federer's lead amid Young Boys pitch concerns

Man Utd-Rashford

The match at the Stade de Suisse will be played on an artificial surface, but Mourinho said: "We are in Switzerland, the home of one of the best ever tennis players [Roger Federer], and I'm pretty sure that the big man sometimes is not happy to play on such a surface, but he has to play and has to win".

A number of United's players were seen raising their eyebrows when stepping out for training on the plastic pitch, with the added impact meaning United captain Antonio Valencia did not travel for the Group H opener.

"Valencia is the only one we need to protect".

Jose Mourinho will be keen to make-up for last season's disappointment that saw United crash out to Sevilla at the last-16 stage of the competition following a 2-1 second leg defeat at Old Trafford.

Manchester United have been forced to change the way they play in order to battle back from a poor start to the season, according to manager Jose Mourinho.

"At this moment I feel Marcus Rashford will say probably not".

Jesse Lingard hasn't travelled to Switzerland while Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo are still unavailable but Marcus Rashford will return to the starting eleven as he's now serving a domestic suspension.

"He (Shaw) has a chance to play, of course he has", said Mourinho.

While Kriti Verma and Roshmi Banik from the outhouse entered the show, Surbhi and Mital got eliminated on the basis of votes. Shivashish Mishra and Sourabh Patel, Romil Choudhary and Nirmal Singh were also welcomed on the show as the two jodiss.

"We have a hard group, starting with a hard team".

Mourinho said: "Yes I lost in Switzerland both matches but I won the group phase - a defeat tomorrow and I win the group, I sign immediately".

"We decide not to play Antonio Valencia because his knee is not a knee that needs an artificial pitch at all".

Shaw will return to the United team after missing Saturday's Premier League win against Watford due to a head injury sustained on England duty.

"So, we have (Romelu) Lukaku, Rashford, (Juan) Mata, Alexis (Sanchez), (Anthony) Martial and they can not play all together".

Manchester United forward Romelu Lukaku has taken Marcus Rashford under his wing and is spending more than half an hour after every training session on attacking drills with the 20-year-old, Metro.co.uk understands.

"Try to be a little bit happy with the ones that are playing and not to be greedy with the ones that are not playing".
