Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho 'faces player backlash'

A report claims that Jose Mourinho faces a revolt at Manchester United after upsetting up to 12 members of his playing squad and coaching staff.

Jose Mourinho has split Manchester United's dressing room after publicly blasting a number of players, according to a report.

The Portuguese is said to have angered up to 12 players and coaches and faces a backlash, despite Saturday's FA Cup semi-final win over Tottenham Hotspur.

Having his son on the bench for the win over Swansea City earlier this month raised eyebrows among staff, and The Sun claims that Mourinho's constant hammering of players has also riled many.

Another gripe, the report claims, is the 55-year-old's hounding of full-back Luke Shaw, who some unnamed United players feel has been treated unfairly.

Paul Pogba could be the biggest casualty at Old Trafford this summer as he is reportedly seeking a move away.
