    ‘Idiotic’ Fellaini let Mourinho down, says Gary Neville

    Gary Neville thinks Jose Mourinho made the right decision tactically to bring on Marouane Fellaini against Everton but feels the Manchester United boss was let down by his player.

    The Belgian midfielder came off the bench late on to try and help see out a win but just two minutes after entering play he conceded a penalty with a clumsy challenge on Idrissa Gueye.

    Leighton Baines scored the penalty to snatch a 1-1 draw for Everton and leave the Red Devils nine […]

    Jose Mourinho ‘smashed up an iPad on the touchline in frustrated rage’

    Former ref Howard Webb claims he once saw Jose Mourinho ‘smash an iPad’ during a fit of rage on the touchline.

    The Manchester United manager doesn’t hold back when it comes to the passion of the beautiful game, and has already received TWO touchline bans this season.

    And the Special One received his marching orders a month later when he launched a water bottle into orbit with a fierce kick against West Ham.

    Mourinho had regular run-ins with the FA during his Chelsea […]

  • Jose Mourinho delighted to welcome back Manchester United star from injury

    Jose Mourinho delighted to welcome back Manchester United star from injury

    Jose Mourinho has said Manchester United need Eric Bailly back after the defender returned to the squad following injury.

    The Ivory Coast defender was an unused substitute in the 1-1 draw at Everton on Sunday, having missed the previous eight games in all competitions with a knee injury.

    With Chris Smalling also out, with a toe problem, Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo have been United’s central defensive pairing.

    On Bailly’s return, United manager Mourinho said: “We need that. It’s impossible for the same […]

    Mourinho ‘has nothing to hide’ over tax affairs

    Jose Mourinho has issued a strong denial of any wrongdoing after being questioned about claims from ‘Football Leaks’.

    Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has insisted he has nothing to hide over his tax affairs.

    A consortium of 12 European newspapers has said it will publish the findings of what is described as “the largest leak in the history of sport” under the banner ‘Football Leaks’ over the next three weeks.

    As part of that leak, several media outlets have alleged that Real Madrid […]

  • Jose Mourinho is transforming into Arsene Wenger, says Jamie Carragher

    Jose Mourinho is transforming into Arsene Wenger, says Jamie Carragher

    Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is transforming into his worst enemy: Arsene Wenger.

    Mourinho, 53, has guided the Red Devils to their worst start in Premier League history so far this season with his United side picking up just 20 points from their first 13 games.

    The self-proclaimed Special One claimed in an interview yesterday that his job was as much about reinstating United’s attacking play as it was about winning trophies.

    United overlooked Mourinho as a successor […]

  • United boss Mourinho blasts Everton as long-ball team

    United boss Mourinho blasts Everton as long-ball team

    Jose Mourinho gave an ill-tempered press conference after Manchester United suffered a late equaliser against Everton, dismissing the opposition as a long-ball side, claiming to have missed key moments in the game and citing double standards in the media.

    Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s finessed first-half finish, a long-range lob over the advancing Maarten Stekelenburg, looked to have settled the points, but Leighton Baines made it 1-1 from the penalty spot after a last-gasp trip from Marouane Fellaini.

    Mourinho’s post-match assessment was brief but withering.

    Asked […]

    Samuel Eto’o sends Mourinho warning

    The striker says his former boss has to get his new Manchester United team playing well and risks being left behind if he continues with the same brand of football.

    Samuel Eto’o has issued a warning to former boss Jose Mourinho, telling him that football is evolving and “you can’t defend continually”.

    The Portuguese has endured a difficult start to the Premier League season with Manchester United currently 10 points off the top four ahead of Sunday’s clash at Everton.

    While United have […]

  • Mourinho to be investigated over tax avoidance

    Mourinho to be investigated over tax avoidance

    Calls have been made for an investigation into Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho’s financial affairs after claims millions of pounds were moved offshore to avoid tax.

    It is alleged Mourinho’s advisers may have helped him avoid paying tax on earnings from the use of his image rights for product endorsement – something which has been strongly denied.

    The claims emerged in a huge data leak of more than 18 million documents, probed for the past number of months by a group of […]

  • Jose Mourinho: Premier League title may be out of United’s reach

    Jose Mourinho: Premier League title may be out of United’s reach

    Manchester United might have left themselves too much ground to make up in the Premier League title race as they trail leaders Chelsea by 11 points after 13 games, according to their manager Jose Mourinho.

    United have won only two of their last 10 league matches, a lack of killer instinct in front of goal leaving them sixth in the table.

    “In the league we have not been getting the goals our performances deserve. There is no doubt we are improving, though. […]

  • Fellaini: This is the big difference between Mourinho and Van Gaal

    Fellaini: This is the big difference between Mourinho and Van Gaal

    Marouane Fellaini believes Louis van Gaal is a much stricter manager than Jose Mourinho.

    The Portuguese coach replaced the Dutchman at Old Trafford in the summer after Manchester United finished outside the top four.

    Mourinho has since guided United to the semi-finals of the EFL Cup, although their league form has been patchy so far with the club lying in sixth.

    But Fellaini is confident he’s the right man for the job and believes his less strict approach can be beneficial.

    ‘I think the […]

    Jose Mourinho admits he feels victimised by FA punishments

    Jose Mourinho claims football authorities treat him differently to other managers – and the Manchester United boss wants that to stop.

    The Portuguese has won medals throughout his career but the route to glory has not been without controversy and fall outs.

    Mourinho’s appointment at Old Trafford led to the resumption of his testy relationship with the Football Association, who this week handed him a touchline ban for the second time within a month.

    The latest suspension came after booting a water bottle […]
