Jose Mourinho left fuming with Manchester United star Luke Shaw after Watford defeat

18 Sep

Mourinho once labelled Watford boss Walter Mazzarri “a donkey” when the pair were rivals in Italian football – but it was the Portuguese who was left looking an ass last night.


Watford swept aside a wretched United with goals from Etienne Capoue, Juan Camilo Zuniga and a penalty from Troy Deeney – Marcus Rashford netting for a team who were totally outplayed.

But Mourinho, who berated Shaw as he took the full-back off straight after Zuniga’s second goal, was left fuming.

“For the second goal, their player receives the ball and our left-back [Luke Shaw] is 25 metres from him instead of five. But even at 25 metres you have to jump and press, but no, we wait.

“This is not a tactical but a mental attitude. An individual mistake. A mistake that went against our plan and our training. The guy gets the ball and we give him the space to progress.”
