Jose Mourinho ‘lost it’ during a training ground rant at his Manchester United players this week, it’s reported.
The Portuguese coach was fuming following his side’s shock 2-1 loss to Huddersfield at the weekend.
It had already been reported that he gave his players a dressing down in the immediate aftermath of the match. But now it’s claimed his dark mood carried over into Monday’s training session.
The Daily Mail report that he was critical of the player’s attitude and he questioned the hunger amongst his squad.
They quote an unnamed Manchester United source as saying: ‘He lost it. He shouted at the players that it wasn’t good enough, and told them there’s an expectation to win at United. He wanted a response out of them.’
Manchester United managed to get back to winning ways in midweek with an EFL Cup victory over Swansea.
However it is this weekend’s clash with Tottenham at Old Trafford that is the bigger test.
