Mourinho spoke to the player in Portuguese and Pochettino claimed that he had put Dier in a compromising position.

"I was honest. My relationship with him is very good, we are in contact". I do hope that I can play for him again one day.
Mourinho then went on to discuss another player who has been missing from first-team action, despite returning to full fitness.

Amidst reports of rift between Jose Mourinho and Ander Herrera, United got back to winning ways. The Premier League giants could be set to trade left-backs, with Luke Shaw making the move to North London and Danny Rose travelling in the opposite direction up to Manchester, according to the Guardian.
"Because Fellaini finishes his contract and Luke Shaw doesn't".
