Jose Mourinho’s recent comments about Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain seem to have upset his players to such an extent, that the club’s Carrington training ground now feels ‘like a morgue’, as per reports.

United seem to have hit a rough patch in their campaign after drawing against arch-rivals Liverpool in the Premier League, and winning marginally against Benfica in Europe.

And after the Red Devils lost their first game of the campaign to Huddersfield Town, who beat United for the first time since March 1952, the atmosphere at the club appears to be at the ‘lowest since Jose Mourinho arrived’.

The 2-1 defeat against the Terriers resulted in major criticism for both the players and the manager, but to make matters worse, Mourinho’s recent comments regarding his future with United, and him suggesting PSG to be a potential destination, has unsettled ‘a number of first-team players’.

According to The Sun, an Old Trafford insider has revealed that club’s ‘top stars have taken the poor run badly,’ and furthermore, the Special One’s comments about PSG have ‘upset’ multiple players.

The Old Trafford source said: “The atmosphere at the training ground is the lowest it has been since Jose joined the club. Something isn’t right. We wonder whether his comments about Paris and not staying long term has also had an impact.

“The players have been pretty quiet since the Liverpool game and a lot less banter has been going on. It’s dropped off a cliff since Huddersfield. Not having Pogba’s presence is always not going to help, as he is so bubbly. The canteen is like a morgue and there is certainly a feeling that the manager is ready to tell a few home truths.”
