MAN UNITED’S STARS are shocked at Jose Mourinho’s “cold” and “distant” approach in training following their 4-0 loss at Chelsea, according to The Times.

The Portuguese suffered his heaviest-ever Premier League defeat on Sunday at Stamford Bridge and blasted his side’s “incredible defensive mistakes” after the result.

Mourinho kept up his line of accusation ahead of their EFL Cup fourth round clash against Manchester City in midweek, calling the players “boys”, and it appears his approach in training reflects his attitude towards his squad at the moment.

It is claimed that it is Rui Faria, Mourinho’s assistant, who is leading training at the club’s Carrington complex. Mourinho, meanwhile, is alleged to watch from a distance or work in his office most of the time.

Such cold treatment has reportedly come as an unpleasant surprise to those who thought Mourinho would give them special attention.

The Times claims that Mourinho has no intention of changing his approach to the Man United squad he inherited from Louis van Gaal any time soon either.
