Jose Mourinho upset with two players’ off-field activities


Jose Mourinho knows full well that Manchester United need to win the Europa League this season.

It could be their only feasible way of entering the Champions League, as they sit five points off the top four.

Despite the Red Devils’ long unbeaten run in the league, frustrations came to a head in the 0-0 draw with West Brom on Saturday.

Sections of Old Trafford booed at the final whistle, United having been held for the 11th time this season.

What has particularly irked Mourinho, reports the Sun, is that while he is working hard to find a solution to the club’s attacking problems, his forwards are indulging in lives of luxury off the pitch.

Youngsters Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard have risked the manager’s wrath.


Rashford, 19, has celebrated his measly tally of three league goals this season by buying a six-bedroom apartment in Cheshire and splashing out on Rolex watches and French fashion.

Lingard, meanwhile, attracted attention with his £250,000 Bentley.

These are hardly surprising items for footballers to be found buying, but it’s left United questioning their decision to up the pair’s wages – especially as they aren’t getting much of a return on the pitch.
