New, comment

Jose Mourinho had a training ground bust-up, there's a ticket snub for the Europa League final, Paul Pogba's critics are just jealous and Marcus Rashford could be called up for England.

Jose Mourinho dealt with the pundits going for Paul Pogba, saying: “I feel that the world is losing values and I am scared about the level of envy coming in. It is not Paul’s fault that he gets 10 times the money some players did in the past. It is not his fault that some pundits are in real trouble with their lives and need every coin to survive, while Paul is a multimillionaire. I think Paul deserves respect, I think his family deserve respect."

Mourinho is right.

Gareth Southgate is considering picking Marcus Rashford for England duty, to Mourinho's chagrin. Rashford needs game time, and he isn't getting enough at United, so it's hard to see what the problem is, but Mourinho is against Rashford attending a summer under-21 tournament if he is now in the senior squad.

Manchester United, if they reach the Europa League final, will get just 10,000 tickets for their fans, because UEFA is one big gravy train.

The Sun reports that Mourinho and a fitness coach had a blazing row and had to be separated. Reports that the argument was over the difference in quality between Portuguese salt cod and Italian salt cod are entirely fictitious. Or are they? Yes.

And lastly, Mourinho has opened up several browsers on his computer, cleared his cookies, and is making a graph about which is the cheapest journey per mile and per minute for their next flight out of the country. He's got spreadsheets.
