Jose Mourinho isn’t pleased with his Manchester United’s medical staff after passing Ander Herrera as fully fit ahead of the Champions League game against Sevilla.
Ander Herrera missed Manchester United’s previous three matches with a hamstring injury, but returned to the starting XI for the last-16 first leg at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.
However, Herrera pulled up with just over quarter of an hour played and appeared visibly frustrated as he was substituted, holding his hamstring whilst leaving the pitch.
“He had a small injury that stopped him for the last couple of matches,” Mourinho explained after the game, which ended in a goalless draw.
“The medical department gave him 100% ready for last Saturday. We didn’t play him to give more work and more protection but it looks like he was not fully fit. The medical department gave him fully fit.
“He trained Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. He looked fit, the way he was playing during the time on the pitch he showed that intensity that is only possible when you feel fully fit.”
