Mourinho told his pre-match news conference ahead of Manchester United's win over Tottenham on Saturday: "I'm anxious about Fellaini and not about Luke Shaw because Fellaini finishes his contract and Luke Shaw doesn't".
Jose Mourinho revealed he was surprised but also happy with Ander Herrera's damning verdict of United's display at Huddersfield last weekend. Maybe it is a common Mourinho tactic, but he put Eric in a compromising position.
Defenders Eric Bailly and Phil Jones are expected to return for United.
Mourinho added: "I don't speak about injured players so don't ask me about Harry Kane, because I have to speak about Rojo, Ibrahimovic, Pogba, Carrick". "I was honest. My relationship with him is very good, we are in contact".
Mourinho said on Friday he was not upset by Shaw's glowing endorsement of Pochettino, but he added it will be hard for the left-back to get the chances he needs to improve his fitness because of competition from Daley Blind, Matteo Darmian, Ashley Young and Marcos Rojo.
As a result, the Manchester Evening Post claim that Shaw could reunite with his ex-boss Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham Hotspur as the Argentine was the main influence for Shaw's growth at Southampton and is still looked upon highly by the young full-back.
"If you want to speak about his words I would be very disappointed if his words were different".
"It shows dignity, it shows character and shows intelligence to know the reason why we lost the match".
The United boss continued: "To play bad and lose matches I think can happen again, it happens".
"It's easier for Galatasaray to get me than Marouane", he said back in July. "But he is in the squad, he works and maybe the opportunity comes". "[We have] one more training session".
