Manchester United can't rest Lukaku until Ibrahimovic is fit, says Mourinho

Zlatan Ibrahimovic Looking off the pace

The Manchester United manager, who is from Portugal but previously coached in Spain, has been called to appear before a judge in a Madrid-based court on November 3.

"He's injured, he cannot play [against Crystal Palace] and it's not an injury that I can have the hope like I have with Antonio Valencia or Phil Jones", said Mourinho.

Lukaku has hit the ground running at Old Trafford and looks like he is ready to lead the line for the Red Devils in the coming weeks and months as Mourinho looks to steer Manchester United to the title.

"With them, I have the hope to see them training and to have a positive answer [on their availability]".

Mourinho listing Pogba along with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo, who have been out of action since suffering knee ligament injuries in April, does appear worrying for United.

"I don't want to speak about his progress", he said. I know the new generation of players are more individuals because their entourage and society makes them this way. Next week is worldwide football, so why can't we play Sunday?

Manchester United can't rest Lukaku until Ibrahimovic is fit, says Mourinho

Lukaku scored a brace as United brushed CSKA Moscow aside on Wednesday night, taking his goals total to 10 for the season from just nine games.

"I wouldn't be fair if I didn't say that every step in his career, with different managers, with fellow players, with different teams, were not contributing to what he is now".

Mourinho suggested Fellaini was benefiting from his management more than he had done under his predecessors at Old Trafford.

Mata has been in and out of United's starting XI and been asked to perform in various positions since Mourinho's arrival, but the Special One believes he is one of a number of unsung heroes in his current squad.

"I need some people with maturity, with the concept of "team". There can be no doubting that he's there on merit for the time being at least.
