Mourinho's players were criticised after the 3-1 defeat away at West Ham last weekend.
A sulking manager who has become irrevocably cautious, who has made several terrible recruitment choices, who routinely chucks his players under a bus, who has always enjoyed confounding the desires of those naive fools who value elan and whom he brazenly mischaracterises as preferring style over substance when what they really want is both? It was another lackluster showing from Jose Mourinho's squad, and certainly one that will turn up the pressure, but not almost as much as it would have been had the team lost.
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho claims "some players care more than others" in the wake of their recent form - while calling out journalists over the Zinedine Zidane rumours.
Tomorrow and in the next games we will see who are the leaders. "The leaders need to be on the pitch".
'Unless one of your top pundits was a player and did that, you know, if Rio [Ferdinand] or Paul [Scholes] or if anyone of them went to the pitch and didn't want to win for his club, for his manager, for his mates, for himself, if he didn't want to win it [then] I have to say I am naive and I have to believe in that'.
"If you talk in the dressing room, that doesn't mean anything". There's a review of the ongoing Mourinho v Pogba saga, and a look ahead to games against Valencia and Newcastle.
"We didn't play well [against West Ham] but we gave our best in that moment", he said.
Manchester United didn't lose, but they didn't win either.
As a Liverpool man, I'm laughing my socks off at United's implosion and I'm sure their fans would do the same if it the same scenario was happening at Liverpool, but what surprises me is that this is so predictable.
"Certainly with two global breaks coming, one in a couple of weeks and one later on with more hard fixtures, I think he may have a huge problem if he doesn't turn it around very quickly".
The Champions League match between Manchester United and Valencia will be broadcast live on TNT.
