With two games remaining of the Premier League season, United are second, 20 points adrift of champions and neighbours Manchester City. "If he's now on 200, I hope, next season, he goes into the 250s".

He told reporters: "How many points separates us from Man City?"

United manager Jose Mourinho reacted to Friday's 1-0 loss at Brighton by making eight changes, introducing a back three and utilizing fit-again Alexis Sanchez as his main striker.

Meanwhile, Mourinho said that the United squad needs improvement in the off-season, and that current squad members need to be "more consistent" and show "more quality" on the pitch.

The French star spoke to Premier League Productions and opened up on his injury, "I had a big injury and missed a lot of games, but now I feel much better".

"I've had a decent career, I've been a decent player but coaching is a whole different ball game".

"They were quite successful previous year, winning two trophies, but coming second is definitely progress". That's normal. I know the players.


'Unless there is a ideal squad where you buy one goalkeeper, you don't like and you buy another one.

And Mourinho admitted he can not accept such a poor return from those fixtures, especially when his players have been able to rise to the occasion and win against their rivals at the top end of the table. You buy a central defender you don't like, you buy another one.

Pogba has found form in recent weeks and was named as the club's player of the month for April, with his double against Manchester City sparking a brilliant 3-2 comeback win which denied City a title celebration against their rivals.

"When I say love, I say it footballistically - players you do not totally believe have the degree of the group but you must keep". 'So, in this moment, for me, he's staying'.

"The amusing thing is I'm one of Paul's biggest fans", he said.

Manchester United will be aiming to seal a second-place finish when they travel to West Ham United later on Thursday and end their league campaign at Old Trafford to Watford on Sunday, in which captain, Michael Carrick will start. He has had a major doubt on the mental state of his team, post stating that something "doesn't smell right" within the club.
