Jose Mourinho fires warning at Manchester United squad ahead of Valencia clash

Jose Mourinho's reign at Old Trafford has turned sour in the past few months and now United look set to play in front of thousands of empty seats against Valencia tonight.

The leaders are the players who are not scared to play.

Jose Mourinho has insisted he is delighted to have the Champions League game with Valencia on Tuesday to focus on.

"I am not talking about individuals here, I am saying that is what you need".

Now we are witnessing something similar as he has clearly had a massive fall-out with Paul Pogba and it has come down to a straight fight between player and manager to see who can outlast each other at United.

"If you talk in the dressing room, that doesn't mean anything. Sometimes it can help, but the most important is on the pitch".

United are without a win in three games after a disastrous week that started with a draw against Wolves and ended with a 3-1 defeat to West Ham after a humiliating loss to Derby County in the Carabao Cup.

"We didn't play well [against West Ham] but we gave our best in that moment", he said.

"Certainly with two worldwide breaks coming, one in a couple of weeks and one later on with more hard fixtures, I think he may have a huge problem if he doesn't turn it around very quickly".

"I prefer that to only playing next Saturday, with one week of these bad feelings".

Manchester United will today take on Valencia in the Champions League fixture at Old Trafford.

His poor start with Manchester United mirrors that of his final season at Stamford Bridge, where he was only able to amass 12 points from his opening 11 games, leading to the Chelsea board giving him the boot before Christmas.
