mem-trLast Sunday, Koeman told Dutch television show Tafel met Kees that he was interested in signing Memphis this January, and reiterated the comments in a press conference on Friday when asked by the English media.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has reacted angrily to the comments made by Koeman.

He said, “I think that my normal answer if somebody asks me about a player from another team, my normal answer is ‘the player is not my player, the player belongs to another team, the player belongs to another manager’, no comments at all.

“I think that is the ethical answer and when we are always worried about ethics and respect, and rules, I just said that if it was me making that kind of comment about an Everton player, I would be in trouble.”

Memphis has barely featured for Manchester United this season and was an unused substitute during their 1-1 draw with Arsenal on Saturday.
