Jose Mourinho gives angry response to reporter when quizzed about controversial Manchester United player interview

Posted by

Jose Mourinho was not in the mood to talk about the quotes doing the rounds involving him appearing to criticise Manchester United players Luke Shaw, Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford.

A different translation and a little more context from Sport Witness appears to put things in a different light, but when asked to provide a little more clarity to the situation, Mourinho did not sound happy to play ball.

The former Chelsea boss has used the media well in his career and is clearly conscious of how the news cycle works, and doesn’t want to give any more fuel to this story than necessary.

Still, Mourinho’s tone suggested some anger at attempts from reporters to draw him into this conversation as he quickly tried to move things on, as shown in the tweets below by United Xtra as they quoted his press conference today:
