Man Utd players ordered to train at 4pm on Christmas Day by Jose Mourinho as he risks further unrest

Category : Football , Sport

MANCHESTER United boss Jose Mourinho has upset his players by ordering them to train at 4pm on Christmas Day.
The players were hoping for a day off to celebrate the festive season with their families and loved ones.

But the struggling squad will train on Christmas Day at Carrington before going to Lowry Hotel where they will spend the night and eat together.
A source said: “Under Sir Alex, the players used to train first thing on Christmas Day and then go home and spend time with their family and enjoy a festive dinner.
“But this year there’s not going to be much fun for them.
“They’ll probably have some pasta pre training and then spend Christmas Day evening alone in their rooms at the Lowry.”

The manager is understood to be jetting to Portugal on December 23 to spend time with his family in his homeland before returning by private jet on December 25.
In his first season at United, Mourinho wanted to train at Old Trafford on Christmas Day.
But he was told it wasn’t possible due to the amount of support staff which would be required to work, from cleaners to stand-by electricians.
Louis van Gaal – who was replaced by Mourinho as United boss – was regarded as a strict disciplinarian but gave the players Christmas Day off.
