3 C Palace JOSE MOUR­INHO chal­lenged Paul Pogba to match the spirit and fight shown by his team-mates if he is to force his way back into his good books. United’s £89mil­lion mid­fielder was an un­used sub­sti­tute as United ripped through Ful­ham in front of an ap­pre­cia­tive Old Traf­ford yes­ter­day af­ter­noon. And the United boss in­sisted his club-record sign­ing has a point to prove when he makes a first start in three matches against Va­len­cia in the Cham­pi­ons League on Wed­nes­day.

“He has to play with the same men­tal­ity as the team is play­ing,” said Mour­inho when asked what the mid­fielder had to do to get back in the side. “Paul can be a fan­tas­tic player, he has the po­ten­tial to be a fan­tas­tic player.

“Against Va­len­cia he is go­ing to start and have a fan­tas­tic foot­ball game to play and to show every­body how good he is.”

United moved into sixth place in the ta­ble with the 4-1 vic­tory that de­lighted Mour­inho (right).

He added: “The play­ers have shown they can be a bet­ter team. At times it was beau­ti­ful foot­ball. The first half was per­fect. We were re­ally good. We needed it.”
