Jose Mourinho Press Conference Previewing FC Basel UCL Match (Video)



Manchester United attacking midfielder Marouane Fellaini picked up a calf injury in the trip to Stoke City, and he is a doubt for the Tuesday night clash against the Swiss side. United Manager Jose Mourinho met the media hours ago to preview the Red Devils UEFA Champions League group stage clash against FC Basel.

Asked if Fellaini’s injury is a recurrence of an old calf issue, Mourinho responded: “Yes, he had a problem with his national team and then he played a match against Greece, and after the match he felt the problem.”

Here is the video of the full Mourinho media session, via YouTube:

Disciplinary Action: Chris Smalling and Victor Lindelof have already been slated to start, as they will replace Eric Bailly and Phil Jones who will be serving their UEFA suspensions.
