Over the weekend, Manchester United went down 4-1 to Liverpool in the The Big House in Michigan. The result was followed by some extraordinary comments from United manager José Mourinho.
The Portuguese's comments about his own youth players in the aftermath of the loss were quite scathing, he asked how could Alexis be "very happy with the players around him", referencing a largely youth side; "not even 30% of [the] squad." Mou also stated he "wouldn't spend his money to see [the two] teams" who contested the friendly. Mourinho's shots at his team, including the unfit Valencia and new-father Anthony Martial, who is yet to rejoin the squad, won't help squad cohesion either. At board level, Chief Executive Ed Woodward may be railing from his manager's criticism of Utd's lack of signings this summer. Problems with his players; problems with his board; these are two of the components which led to Mourinho's sacking after a dismal start to a season at Chelsea in 13/14. United are potentially on a disastrous course. Jul 30 - 5:41 PM
