The United manager, asked to guarantee that Pogba would not leave, made clear that he wanted the player to stay, but was cautious beyond about his long-term future.

United, virtually assured of second spot, have two Premier League games left in their season.

"He doesn't need anything", the United tactician added on the topic of Rashford.

"We are confident", said Mourinho.

Rashford has played the most games for Manchester United under Mourinho, featuring in 102 of the club's 117 competitive matches since the Portuguese boss took charge in 2016.

"And that's why he played in so many of them, so he doesn't need to leave to play or to need anything".

After taking on West Ham United at the Olympic Stadium on Thursday, they host Watford on Sunday before starting preparations for their FA Cup final clash with Chelsea on May 19.

The veteran midfielder has won five Premier League titles during his time in the north west of England, while also clinching an FA Cup two seasons ago, as well as claiming three League Cups.

Mark Ingram's suspension means Browns will miss facing Saints RB
The NFL has handed Ingram a four-game suspension for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances. He had his first career 1,000-yard season in 2016 and followed that up with another one in 2017.

When asked if Ferguson's condition would have an impact on the team, Mourinho said: "No, I can only think that if there is any relation it is a positive relation".

"I trust some more than others to bridge that gap".

"I think it's normal that during the season, you have your low moments but in a balanced way".

"Unless you can do that, you have to keep players you don't love - when I say love, I say it "footballistically" - and players you don't totally believe have the level of the squad. Big and small, I don't like it [those terms], but that's the way I can express it".

Speaking to reporters, according to BBC Sport, he said: "We believe [his qualities] can make him a good coach".

'Unless there is a flawless squad where you buy one goalkeeper, you don't like and you buy another one.

Mourinho has no plans for a major overhaul of his squad, arguing he does not have the finances to buy players at will, which could be interpreted as a criticism of Manchester City.

The United manager also questioned the overall mindset of his team after declaring that it "doesn't smell right" that the club could have beaten all of the Premier League's top six this season but lost to the three promoted sides.
