Jose Mourinho has cooled any play surrounding Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez’s chastisement evidence and says a Frenchman is Manchester United’s designated spot-kick taker.
The Red Devils went forward opposite Leicester City inside 3 mins of Friday night’s Premier League screen raiser after a sport from Daniel Amartey, with Luke Shaw scoring a wilful idea late on in a 2-1 win during Old Trafford.
However, before a early spot-kick was dispatched by Pogba, Sanchez attempted to seize a round off his teammate – yet Mourinho insists a Frenchman did not mangle rank.
Asked who United’s designated chastisement taker is, Mourinho told a press discussion after a game: ‘The meditative was that he is a really good chastisement taker and he likes a shortcoming of it and he’s a initial choice.
‘Of march on a representation we have a second and third choice, in box of not certainty or for some reason does not wish to take, though he was ready.
‘And of march he lerned lots of penalties during a World Cup – since it’s something that, in a foe like that, each actor trains a lot – and he was really confident. Schmeichel is really good on penalties though no chance.’
Pogba employed a rather peculiar run up, holding a array of small, delayed stairs before finally distinguished a ball, though Mourinho had no qualms about his technique.
The Portuguese manager added: ‘The run adult doesn’t matter, what matters is a peculiarity and a intensity. You could feel that a instruction was unfit for Schmeichel.
‘I consider Schmeichel goes to a same side, he goes to a same dilemma though no wings to arrive there. Only with wings [could he save it]. So it’s illusory penalty.’
