Defiant Manchester United fans show Jose Mourinho love after England squad announcement

A few defiant Manchester United fans seem determined not to buy all the ‘fake news’ about manager Jose Mourinho.

The Portuguese tactician is not having the best of times at the moment after two defeats from United’s opening three Premier League games, which have followed some public grumbling about transfers and also leaving big names out of his team on occasion.

A few are staying loyal to Mourinho, however, and have credited the Red Devils boss for Luke Shaw’s revival as he makes it into today’s England squad, which has just been announced by Gareth Southgate.

It’s a first call up for a long time for the former Southampton youngster, who has had his troubles with injury, but who also failed to get into the team on a regular basis when Mourinho first arrived.

The 55-year-old has also been publicly critical of Shaw’s performances on more than one occasion, though he seems to have responded well this season with some strong early form, which included a winning goal against Leicester City on the opening day of the campaign.

Is this a masterstroke from Mourinho, or just the manager finally realising he has a talented player on his hands who deserves more chances? These fans have had their say…

This wasn’t everyone’s view, however…
