The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are shocked about this…
Jose Mourinho has proven to be a divisive figure during his tenure as manager in the Premier League, and his latest decision has seemingly even turned his own players against him.
According to the Sun, Jose Mourinho has ordered his Man Utd players into training on Christmas Day – with a 4.30pm session scheduled at Old Trafford.
Everyone from training staff to players will need to be present, and it has reportedly frustrated those that will be forced to attend.
A source said: “They’ve never heard anything like it – not even under Fergie…He’s effectively cancelled Christmas.”
That being said, it is not surprising that Jose Mourinho is coming down hard on his staff – with the Red Devils seriously struggling in the Premier League this season. A win against Tottenham over the weekend was a welcome relief for Mourinho, but that does not rid his side of the fact that they are some way off the top of the Premier League table.
Man Utd are currently 6th in the Premier League, and are sitting 13 points off of the top of the table. Even a Champions League spot is not a foregone conclusion – with the Red Devils still 6 points adrift.
Our landlord thinks that Man Utd have been poor this year – and extra work is the only way that the issue can be solved. It looks like it isn’t just Jose that’s turning into the Grinch this Christmas…
