LONDON. – The spectacular collapse of the US tour of José Mourinho is affecting his Manchester United players, with the new season just nine days away.
The United boss has cut an angry and frustrated figure on the club's American tour, with players, staff and officials standing on the edge around him.
Mourinho chose Anthony Martial and Antonio Valencia to criticize him on a tour, his brief comments on the first caused concern among the club's staff.
The United chief gave an interview to MUTV in which he stated that Martial – who left the US UU For the birth of your second child – you should have joined the tour after the birth of your child.
United was concerned about the potential inflammatory effect of the comments, but they were broadcast before they could be vetoed, with club sources claiming there was no problem with the broadcast.
A senior United player was so concerned about Mourinho's reaction to a touring interview, he insisted on his response to a search. The US hierarchy, headed by executive vice president Ed Woodward, has been increasingly concerned more for the negative tone of Mourinho, before a crucial season for the club. .
Mourinho moaned during United's tour for the lack of players at his disposal, Woodward's perceived failure to land all of his summer transfer goals and cut off a disillusioned figure.
It was clear that Mourinho wanted to make a point about his feelings about Martial, who felt he could have joined the US team in Michigan or Miami after the birth of his son last week.
Fabian Delph of Manchester City flew home from Russia midway through the World Cup for the birth of his third daughter last month and rejoined the England squad in 48 hours.
But Martial has not been able to rejoin the United States squad after the birth of his son, despite the fact that Mourinho does not have a scoring scorer, with Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford in the aftermath of the World Cup.
Mourinho pointed to the captain Valencia, criticizing his physical condition and alleging that the side had enjoyed "too much vacation" after having to return home injured after the second game of the US tour.
The head of the United States also canceled the young people on United's tour, who were forced to fill the void left by the absent established stars, declaring that most of them will be sent on loan. the next season.
Mourinho's mood was not helped by the forced loss of Nemanja Matic, who joined the squad in Los Angeles, only to be unable to train and require abdominal surgery in Philadelphia, discarding it for weeks.  That means that Matic, along with captain Valencia, will miss the start of the new season, while Mourinho has a total of 17 players unavailable due to injuries or subsequent expansions to the World Cup.
After United's emphatic 4-1 defeat at goal in Liverpool, Michigan, Mourinho called the US tour useless for him.
With so many players absent, Mourinho said he was not "our team" and scared away the hopes of the young players who were trying to impress on the tour. saying that most of them will not be at United next season.
Mourinho then put the boot in the International Champions Cup by saying he would not buy a ticket to United's games if he were a fan, because there are so many high profile players missing.
That was on top of Mourinho criticizing Woodward for failing to achieve all of his transfer targets and qualifying the referee and his assistants as "baseball officials" in the wake of Liverpool's defeat. – Mirror.
