Manchester United endured a scornful defeat away to Premier League rookies Huddersfield, which has delivered a grave plight for the club members. And according to Mirror, most of the players are seemingly out of sorts with the criticism laid by Jose Mourinho following the shock 2-1 defeat.
Ergo, their relationship with the tactician seems to be a bit off, which might plausibly be the very outset of the downfall of the Red Devils. Moreover, the Portuguese boss was reportedly found detached and stony with his players when they trained the next day.
Notwithstanding the fact that this was widely anticipated following the heavily criticised defeat with rookies, some players were found in disquietude as an outcome.
The Red Devils made an outstanding start to the season, converting six of their first eight Premier League games into victories while securing a hundred percent record from their Champions League group matches, which had noted them equal with City.
However, the blissful form started disrupting after the controversial defensive approach Mourinho adopted at Anfield, causing a slight uproar among the supporters.
And now, the ex-Chelsea boss’ relationship with his players is being thoroughly put to test, whom he avowed to “love” on multiple junctures since taking over the reign of the Mancunians.
The 54-year-old’s desire that his players provide better commitment, ironically came shortly after his charming talks about Paris Saint-Germain. He had proclaimed that PSG’s project was considered “magic” and “special,” and also that his son was a big fan of the French capital. Furthermore, he had addressed that he wouldn’t conclude his managerial career with the Old Trafford outfit.
Be that as it may, the former Real Madrid gaffer had commented that Ander Herrera, who conceded that United had a wretched attitude towards the game with Huddersfield, should have been compelled to do the post-match press conference himself to interpret his observations.
“I heard Herrera in the flash interviews saying the attitude and desire was poor,” the Portuguese said told the media, before exclaiming: “Oh my God!”
Mourinho would now look for a rejoinder from his team members when the Mancunian giants face Swansea City in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night, and thereafter welcome Tottenham to Old Trafford on the weekend.
