Jose Mourinho puts in bid for Jordan Pickford after seeing his recovery tackle

Jose Mourinho called Marco Silva during the England game to put a bid in for Jordan Pickford as a central defender.

According to unofficial sources the Man United boss wanted Pickford to line up in his back four after seeing his incredible recovery tackle on Paco Alcacer.

Pickford left nearly every England short of breath when he attempted a Cruyff turn in his own area with the score 3-1.

Lee Satchell, United’s unofficial defensive scout, said that he recommended the idea of Pickford replacing Chris Smalling or Phil Jones in United’s back to Mourinho and he loved the idea.

“Jose said he was going to ring Marco Silva right now because that tackle was better than anything he had seen from the players this season,” Satchell said.

“He added, ‘why would I bother playing Smalling, Jones or Eric Bailly, when I could just have Pickford as a one-man wrecking ball at the back?’

What was Pickford thinking!? 🙈

He somehow doesn't give away a penalty after losing the ball in his own box! Correct call? 🤔

Satchell said Jose wasn’t bothered about the dodgy Cruyff turn before as he would drill it into him that all he had to do was tackle anything that breathes and then launch the ball long for Marouane Fellaini to do the rest.

After Alcacer nicked the ball off Pickford he was destined to score only to be tugged back before Pickford slid in to blast the ball away.

Satchell said Jose called it ‘perfect defending’.
