Manchester United legend rips into Jose for his youngsters’ words


Prior to the Crystal Palace match on Saturday, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was absolutely critical of four or five of his young players and their conducts at training.
Manchester United were held to a 0-0 draw at home by struggling side Crystal Palace. The Red Devils are now closer to the relegation bottom occupied by Fulham who are 13 points worse off than they are to the top spot, where Manchester City are better off by 14 points.
Jose Mourinho’s ego and attitude has been extremely questioned by the experts in the footballing world. However, the 55 year old manager has been slammed by the Red Devils’ legend Rio Ferdinand, especially after his recent comments about the club’s young players.

“When you get comments where he’s hammering four or five of the young players at the club, saying their mentality isn’t right, what do you expect?” the United great told BT Sport. “Do you expect to have players on your side or do you expect your players to go ‘hold on a minute, my manager is hammering me in public again’? I just don’t think it’s right for a football manager to be doing that. I don’t think you’re going to get productivity out of those kind of comments. I don’t think it’s proactive for the club. What he’s said might be true. He’s behind closed doors, he sees these boys day in, day out. He might look at those four or five kids and go ‘you know what, this is exactly how I feel about you’. He’s got that right to say that. But I think behind closed doors, in the changing room, embarrass them in front of the team. You don’t get positivity doing that publicly and the fans don’t like that either.”
Author’s Take
Rio Ferdinand is profound and collectively loved even as a pundit, the way he similarly was whilst being a player. The former Manchester United central defender is clearly not happy with the Manchester United boss, similar to most of his former teammates at the Old Trafford.
It’s high time that Jose Mourinho stops commenting unreasonably on his players and alienate the fans and respected members of the club. It might lead to him losing his job, which is any which way a huge demand.
