Man Utd boss Mourinho ponders Alexis and Herrera legal cases

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho says the legal cases in Spain involving Alexis Sanchez and Ander Herrera have not proved a distraction for either player.

Sanchez was given a 16-month prison judgement for committing tax fraud in Spain earlier this week - but the Chilean will avoid jail time as first-time offenders in Spain are not incarcerated if the sentence is less than two years.

Herrera, meanwhile, says his conscience is clear after an investigation into match-fixing allegations from Real Zaragoza's 2-1 win against Levante on May 21, 2011, was reopened in Spain.

"No (I've not noticed anything with them)," he said. "No, the squad is good, everything is fine.

"Eric Bailly, Daley Blind, the two players that are out. Zlatan started training with the team two days ago, so two days with the group and improving. We are fine."
