Mourinho refuses to address disgruntled United fans

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho refused to meet the club’s Supporters Trust (MUST), over concerns his playing style in some recent matches has been negative.

In last Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur, the Red Devils kept things very tight and created few openings before Anthony Martial popped up with a late winner at Old Trafford. 

In addition, Mourinho employed what appeared to be a defensively-minded strategy in the 0-0 draw with Liverpool on 14 October in the Premier League. 

He told Sky Sports, “I cannot meet a quarter of the planet. I think a quarter of the planet is Manchester United red. I cannot meet them.”

The Portuguese added he would not be surprised if he was greeted with a hostile reaction in Sunday’s clash with his former side Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, saying, “That's not a problem at all. I walk in the street and outside the football 'heat' I get so many Chelsea fans, especially in the area where I live, and I didn't have one single one that wasn't nice. 

"What happened in the football stadium is a different thing. When I go to Stamford Bridge, I am the manager of their opponent so I accept every possible reaction with the utmost respect."
