Jose Mourinho has taken a sensational shot at his Manchester United players, saying: “I think that some care more than others!”
Mourinho has been feeling the heat at Old Trafford after a poor start to the season and continued problems with his players.
The Red Devils boss has clashed with Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez in recent weeks as United have failed to keep up with title rivals Manchester City and Liverpool, who are already nine points clear of them at the top of the Premier League.
Red Devils chiefs, however, have played down this scenario as a possibility.
Mourinho spoke to the press on Monday, ahead of his side’s Champions League clash with Valencia, in which he questioned the fight of some of his players.

“The reason why we don’t win matches is the same as why we win matches,” continued Mourinho. “It’s down to everybody. The performance on the pitch is down to many factors.”
He added: “I see different reactions, but sometimes what you see is different from the inside. You see some people on the outside look like they haven’t lost a game, but in training they are working hard.”
