Mourinho reveals the reason Man Utd drew with Southampton

Ralph Hasenhuttl is nearing the Southampton job

Jose Mourinho branded Paul Pogba "a virus" in front of his Manchester United teammates following Saturday's draw against Southampton.

'We lost so many balls in midfield, we lost so many balls in our transition to the last third, it was hard to have that continuity. I think everybody would say yes. "They kept overcomplicating the match".

The visitors finally came to life around the half hour mark when striker Romelu Lukaku scored his first goal for the club in all competitions for 981 minutes, going back to September 15. The result is not good so I have to say we dropped two points.

Mourinho's side did nearly take an early lead through Lukaku, but looked ragged down the other end and, after missing several chances to clear their lines, Southampton's Michael Obafemi laid the ball off for Armstrong to break the deadlock.

Brighton have struggled away from the Amex Stadium winning just three of their 26 games on the road since the start of last season and have conceded at least twice in five of their seven away matches this season.

"There were examples of players fighting to the limits - Marcus Rashford, Phil Jones and many others - showing that respect for the shirt and for the club".

Immediately after the game, Mourinho cited United's lack of "mad dogs" as the reason for their second successive draw in the Premier League, but thought one player brought a particular bite to their performance.

De Gea was flailing at the effort, and Saints had a 2-0 lead.

Mourinho was forced to field a back three which included midfielders Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay after injury ruled out Victor Lindelof, Chris Smalling and Eric Bailly. "(Not winning) has to do with the characteristics of the players.

A third consecutive Premier League game without a win leaves United trailing in City's wake.

Pogba has reportedly told his former team-mates at Juventus he wants a return to the Old Lady, while he also said Turin feels like home, and it could be the cards if his relationship with Mourinho doesn't improve.
