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

Pogba's older brother finds new club in France

United won their opening game 3-0 away to Young Boys, while Juventus and Cristiano Ronaldo also kicked off with three points.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has never previously lost to Valencia in 10 clashes in all competitions (W6, D4), including a 3-2 aggregate victory in the quarter-finals of the 2006-07 Champions League while managing Chelsea.

Will Mourinho lose his job?

Mourinho refused to disclose whether he had met with United's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward since Saturday's defeat. "That's a private matter", he said, equally rebutting the suggestion that he has had a conversation with the France 1998 World Cup victor. That's a private matter, I'm not asking who you spoke to yesterday. "I'm not going to answer it", he said.

Mourinho was said to be upset with Valencia for not attending the club's Carabao Cup defeat to Derby County last week, and criticised his role as captain.

"He (Shaw) says "we players are on the pitch, we have to perform, we have to give more". Sometimes it can help but the most important is on the pitch.

"After 20 years of football, I am still the kid that I was 20 years ago and I am still naïve, but I still don't believe that a player is not honest". I like that perspective but I don't agree totally.

Some ‘care more than others’ about Man Utd crisis - Mourinho
Antonio Valencia also missed the trip to the London Stadium, but took part in the session at Carrington on Monday. I don't believe that any player goes onto the pitch not giving his best.

Most concluded that their involvement was far too risky, certainly relative to their links to the world's biggest economy. The EU issued a "blocking statute" to protect European businesses from the impact of the sanctions.

"Everyone in the club has a role to play". The kit man, the nutritionist. "I don't believe any player goes onto the pitch and doesn't try".

Pushed further on the squad's attitude, Mourinho added: "I think that some care more than others", while refusing to name names.

As the visiting manager, Marcelino was asked what he thought were the best and worst aspects of Manchester United.

From the selection of personas available to him in times of alleged crisis, José Mourinho chose the sunny, upbeat one for the press conference ahead of the Champions League meeting with Valencia that could, theoretically, turn into his last game in charge.

"Everyone has a responsibility", he said.

"We know that and we have to be ready for that".
