According to The Sun reporter, Daniel Cutts, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho had set up an investigation to scare off the spook that was leaking his pre-match plans and his line-ups.
Reportedly, a Manchester United fan had been receiving messages from someone within the club that disclosed lineups before any important fixture. Agitated by such let outs, Jose Mourinho set up an investigation to put an end to the source that was leaking out of his plans.
English media outlet, Sun Sport released the Manchester United line-up three hours before they played Ukrainian side Zorya Luhansk on September 29 in the Europa League tie.
Line-ups and matchday squads are usually tweeted and posted by official club accounts various media platforms an hour before the scheduled game kicks off.
Members of the press who attend the games are generally informed about the clubs’ lineups earlier than this but they are supposed to keep it confidential until officially released.
A member from Manchester United told Sun Sport, “Mourinho is spitting feathers after discovering he’s being betrayed by someone within the club.
“This sort of information is gold dust for opposition managers and gamblers.”
Manchester United legend, Gary Neville has also said in the past that someone at the club is leaking information to the press and other entities outside the club.
There have also been some quotes from within the squad members that Mourinho has been too vocal at times with the players, even more than Fergie ever was.
With so much information and talks within the team members leaking out, there surely is some mole at Old Trafford. But with the stern approach from the Manchester United manager, the leaks have now stopped and it appears Mourinho has either found the culprit or the source is scared of being found out.
Mourinho is known to be unhappy with a lot of aspects at Manchester United and is looking to fix things by investigating everything related wit their first team.
According to some reports in English media, the Portuguese is looking at every area at his disposal and is implementing certain changes to counter the culture that he has inherited at the club. He is trying to set up his own ways at United and is demanding every player to man-up and be ready to give their 100% whenever needed.
Manchester United’s patchy form so far this season now looks down to much more than their bad form. But, Mourinho is not dropping his shoulders and is determined to restore Manchester United’s lost legacy.
