Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho has had a rocky fortnight or so when it comes to the club’s supporters, and he won’t be particularly impressed with this fanzine if he sees it.
As noted by the Manchester Evening News, there has been a bit of back and forth between the 54-year-old and some Man Utd supporters in recent weeks.
Ultimately, the Portuguese tactician has been defending himself and his players as well as their style of play which has brought about decent enough results amid criticism from sections of the United faithful during games.
Mourinho won three trophies in his first season in charge at Old Trafford, but his more pragmatic style is a big deviation away from what Man Utd are used to having developed a culture of attacking and expansive football under Sir Alex Ferguson for decades.
In turn, it has seemingly led to a bit of tension between the two parties, but it would naturally have been expected to blow over with positive results undoubtedly key in helping them move forward together.
However, the ‘United We Stand’ fanzine has decided to drag it out a bit more, with the front cover below having a pop at Mourinho with a reminder of his disappointing results away from home against direct rivals.
Mourinho himself is depicted as Bill Murray from the film ‘Groundhog Day’ with Henrikh Mkhitaryan on his shoulder, and so this is clearly another dig at the Man Utd boss and we can only imagine his reaction if he were to find himself a copy.
It remains to be seen how the situation plays out moving forward, but with United now eight points adrift of Premier League leaders Man City, the focus has to be on getting positive results after the international break to do their best to wipe out the deficit and get all supporters back on side.
