The Red Devils took on the San Jose Earthquakes while on a US tour on Sunday, with the bout ending in a draw.
Manchester United fans appeared to be absolutely fuming following team manager Jose Mourinho’s negative remarks over the squad’s performance in Sunday’s friendly with the American San Jose Earthquakes.
Speaking to MUTV after the 0-0 draw, the coach showed distinct disappointment with the outcome, saying they are not a team, but “a group of players from different teams.” He nevertheless chose to praise Alexis Sanchez, who joined the Red Devils on their US tour after a short delay due to visa complications, and Andreas Pereira.
“We don’t have a team to play much better than we did but it’s one more training session,” Mourinho rounded off.
The “No team” remark, as well as the Red Devils’ play, fueled a barrage of criticism online, with some Twitter users going as far as calling for Mourinho to be fired. Even a special group has popped up on the social network called “MourinhoOut – The Finished One.”
Some speculated on to what extent United’s performance had become boring since the former Portuguese star took over the club:
Mourniho took over a managerial job at United in May 2016, with the Red Devils having charged him with the task of bringing the good times back to Old Trafford.
