José Mourinho says he should complain about injuries every week to get sympathy and cry over it.
The Portuguese is in a war of words with Antonio Conte and it continues ahead of their match on Sunday.
Mourinho will go to Stamford Bridge on Sunday without Pogba, Carrick and Fellaini among others.
Claiming United have not received the credit they deserve for coping with a mounting injury list, he said: “It’s my fault because I should cry every week about our injuries and remind everybody, day after day or press conference after press conference.
“So it’s my fault. It’s my decision. It’s my way of dealing with problems. It’s my way of trying to motivate and respect and give confidence to the players that are going to replace those people. But maybe I have to reconsider my profile. I know that I moan about a lot of things but I don’t with injuries and probably I should.
“I think any other manager would be speaking about Pogba every day. ‘Oh, I don’t have Pogba. Oh, when will I have Pogba? Oh, 10 matches without Pogba. Oh, all the Champions League group phase without Pogba. Oh, all the big matches, against Liverpool, against Chelsea, against Spurs without Pogba. Oh.’ I don’t speak about Pogba one single time. It’s only when you ask me about his situation.
“And it’s not just Pogba. It’s Pogba, it’s Fellaini, it’s Carrick, it’s Ibra [Zlatan Ibrahimovic], it’s Marcos Rojo. It’s a big group of players. So I think we are doing very, very well.”
