Mourinho reveals he will drop players for FA Cup semi-final against Spurs
Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has said he will drop players from the team that played against West Brom, for their FA Cup semi-final against Tottenham.
United handed the Premier League title to rivals City following their 1-0 defeat on Sunday against the bottom-placed club.
Mourinho who blasted his players for complacency after the game , has now said other players will be given a chance to prove themselves against Bournemouth on Wednesday.
“If I play someone against Bournemouth and he is phenomenal, he plays the semi-final.
“The word is not rotation. This is an opportunity for some people to play and to try to get a place in the team. Some of the guys who played [against West Brom], they don’t have a place in that team.
“I only know one criteria [for choosing the team]. It is the way you play. This is the only way I can select players.
“Do you want me to go for the price they cost? Or their salary? Or their beautiful face? The only way is to go with performance,” Mourinho said.
