Mourinho unhappy with some United Players after Swansea win

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has questioned the mentality of some of his players, after their 3-1 win at Swansea City.

Paul Pogba scored a brilliant volley, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic grabbed a brace, as United finally won again in the Premier League.

Mourinho was forced to reshuffle his defence for the match, after Chris Smalling and Luke Shaw withdrew from the squad and Daley Blind was only fit for the bench.

Ashley Young, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo and Matteo Darmian made up the back four and Mourinho was unimpressed ith the players who deemed themselves unfit.

“I have a friend who is a big tennis player and he tells me when he remembered more the times he plays with pain than the times he plays without pain,” Mourinho said.

“To compete you have to go to the limit. It is cultural for some – and that is not my culture. More than me, it is Man United.

“We have players with problems. At every sport – and I know because I have friends in others sports and they play at the highest level in their sport, and how many times they play when you are not 100 per cent.”

The Old Trafford club are now sixth on the table after 11 matches, eight points adrift of leaders Liverpool.
