Jose Mourinho fires warning at Manchester United squad ahead of Valencia clash

Ashley Young, Ander Herrera, Marcos Rojo and Jesse Lingard missing from Manchester United training ahead of Valencia

Manchester United v Valencia

Mourinho was a great manager who knew how to win trophies year after year, but he has morphed into something very different in the second half of his career and it has become clear that he doesn't know how to handle superstar players with big egos.

The Red Devils will be without Ashley Young, Ander Herrera and Jesse Lingard for today's match, with the trio all missing training on Monday and subsequently being ruled out by manager, Jose Mourinho.

"I am not talking about individuals here, I am saying that is what you need".

Matic said supporters at Old Trafford would see against Valencia which players were leaders and which were not.

Cristiano Ronaldo accuser spells out rape claims in magazine
Der Spiegel alleged he raped someone previous year as well but a rep for Ronaldo denied it vehemently. Yeah but it's part of the job. "I'm a happy man and all good".

"If you talk in the dressing room, that doesn't mean anything". I see upset people, some people that don't look like they lost a game. "The most important is on the pitch".

After defeats against Derby County and West Ham United, Jose Mourinho is now under serious pressure ahead of the club's Champions League tie against Valencia.

"We didn't play well [against West Ham] but we gave our best in that moment", he said.

But with most of the squad badly out of form, and several apparently at loggerheads with the manager, it is hard to predict who will start here.

Pogba ready to stop playing for Jose Mourinho at United
West Ham beat Mourinho's side 3-1 yesterday, which followed up on the club's EFL Cup exit to Derby County during the midweek. Senior sources at the Red Devils have now come out to address the speculation surrounding the French manager.

"I prefer that to only playing next Saturday, with one week of these bad feelings".

His poor start with Manchester United mirrors that of his final season at Stamford Bridge, where he was only able to amass 12 points from his opening 11 games, leading to the Chelsea board giving him the boot before Christmas.

The match against Valencia will be crucial for Manchester United as they are gonna play two back-to-back home games in the Champions League as Juventus is set to tour Old Trafford on October 23, 2018.
