Mourinho: Some 'care more than others'

Manchester United´s David de Gea looks dejected after West Ham´s third goal

Jose Mourinho criticised some of his Manchester United players on Monday and said "some care more than others", following the club's poor run of form - but denied his job was on the line.

After their defeat to West Ham in the Premier League at the weekend, which comes after a draw with Wolves at home and a loss to Derby in the EFL, Mourinho's stint at Old Trafford looks like it could go the same way as his Chelsea stay when he was sacked in December 2015 in the third year of his reign.

Zidane apparently explained to the former Chelsea boss that all that happened was his representatives had asked him if he would be interested in the United job.

When asked about the story, Mourinho turned the tables on the journalist who wrote the story by telling reporters to ask him whether the story was true and joked his phone had been bugged. I look in the mirror and I want to see where I made mistakes and where I can do better. "I see different reactions".

"You can be laughing and be the saddest person in the world and you can be with a very sad face and you can be a fantastic actor and inside of you, you are very happy, so sometimes what you see is not what you get".

On United's plight this season, Mourinho added: "I think that some [players] care more than others".

The Chilean striker was Pep Guardiola's main attacking target for two transfer windows before an offer from Manchester United to make him the highest paid player in the Premier League turned his head, leading to him heading to Old Trafford from Arsenal.

A third point saw Spieth and Thomas become just the fourth U.S. pairing to achieve that haul since it became Europe versus the US. It clinched the win at 14.9-9.5 with play still ongoing. "His pace looked a little bit slow walking", US captain Jim Furyk said.

President Trump holds rare solo news conference
Trump called on reporters at will, often taking time to malign or praise their respective news outlets. "People want fame. She adds, "This is a country where you're innocent until proven guilty except when you're a conservative Republican".

Subsequently, though, it has been claimed Zidane's call left Mourinho convinced that United's chiefs, including vice-chairman Ed Woodward, have sounded out the Frenchman's agents and are making contingency plans ahead of his potential sacking. I think everything is there in front of them already to know that this isn't going to be a long-term relationship anymore.

From this scathing assessment, it's clear that Shaw believes Man Utd's players should be looking at themselves rather than pointing the finger at Mourinho.

"We have to look at ourselves as players", he said. It's all of us, everybody has a role to play. "The most important (thing) is what you show on the pitch".

Luke Shaw stepping up with Roy Keane (circa 2005) comments.

"I like that perspective, but I don't agree totally".

"After 20 years of football, I am still the kid that I was 20 years ago and I am still naive, but I still don't believe that a player is not honest". Everybody has a role to play.
