Jose Mourinho may have raised a few eyebrows about Manchester United’s poor record in Europe four years ago, but his comments don’t seem so outrageous now.

This might not have been what the players or the fans wanted to hear, but the club’s poor record since then just shows there remains a problem with the culture inside Old Trafford.
