    SPECIAL ONES

    Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has revealed his all-time XI of players he has managed – with NO Manchester United stars selected.

    The Special One was appointed as United boss in May 2016, but despite winning the Europa League and Carabao Cup in his first season, fans never really took to him.

    Mourinho was sacked in December 2018, his time at the club blighted by rumours of fall-outs with star man Paul Pogba.

    Unsurprisingly the French midfielder doesn't make the all-star XI, as reported by AS.

    And there are certainly plenty of surprise omissions considering some of the world class players Jose has worked with in the past.

    Take a look at Mourinho's star-studded XI below.

    TUG OF WAR

    England and Germany are set for an international tug-of-war over Bayern Munich’s former Chelsea prospect Jamal Musiala.

    The 17-year-old winger is joining up with the Three Lions’ Under-21 squad next week.

    But the Daily Mail claims he is also due to be invited to train with Germany.

    Musiala is one of the hottest young prospects in the Bundesliga after a major breakthrough at the Champions League holders.

    He has scored twice in his eight appearances already this campaign.

    The teen was born in Stuttgart to a Nigerian father and a German mother but the family moved to England when he was a child.

    Musiala signed for Chelsea as a schoolboy but left the Blues for Bayern at 16.

    He has British citizenship and has played for both Germany and England at age-group levels, and also speaks both languages fluently.

    DAN AND OUT

    Former Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge will struggle to find a new club in January as loan deals are more appealing, according to reports.

    The ex-Liverpool star is a free agent having left Turkish side Trabzonspor in March.

    As reported by The Athletic, sides looking to bolster their squads when the January transfer window opens are likely to go for those training each day.

    Players such as Phil Jones, Marcos Alonso and William Saliba are barely involved in first-team football this season but are keeping sharp by working with top-class team-mates.

    Sturridge, meanwhile, last played a competitive match way back in February so would surely need a few weeks of intense training to get up to speed again.

    The ex-Liverpool man was training with eighth-tier Kidsgrove and has been working hard in the gym but nothing replicates organised training in a quality, team environment.

    FRANK ORDER

    Frank Lampard told Mason Mount to 'stop f***ing about' and embrace his new role in a stern warning during the win against Sheffield United.

    Lampard has deployed Mount in a deeper position back in midfield rather than as a wide attacker and reminded him of his responsibilities during the 4-1 rout over the Blades.

    The Telegraph reported Lampard's explicit touchline message 30 minutes into the game as he urged the 21-year-old to move the ball faster out to the flanks.

    The Blues manager was keen for dangerous duo Reece James and Hakim Ziyech to receive the ball on the right wing.

    Mount clearly took on board the instructions as his selfless display helped the West Londoners recover from going a goal down to run out convincing winners at Stamford Bridge.

    After the match, he said: “My role now is trying to get them on the ball to do what they do. I have gone back into midfield, which is something I played a lot last season.

    “For us midfielders we want to get up and get involved, but also to be ready if we do lose the ball to win it back.”
