Mourinho reveals Manchester United player wanted his Rolls Royce



Jose Mourinho has claimed that an unnamed Manchester United player, asked to drive his Rolls Royce after a match, instead of taking the team bus.

Mourinho was sacked by United in December, following a poor run of form.

Before then, the 56-year-old was involved in bust-ups with several players including Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Luke Shaw, during his time at Old Trafford.

And Mourinho has now revealed one situation at United where he felt defeated by player power.

“We would play a team that was 30 kilometres from Manchester, it wasn’t like 300 or 400km.

“And a player asked me if after the game he could return to Manchester without the team, and go on his own.

“And I told him: ‘That doesn’t make sense, if we went to London and you wanted to stay that would be something else.’

“But this was close, it didn’t make sense.

“The guy was upset. But then we won the game and he asked me again because I was happy. ‘I told him again, but as I was happy I gave in a little and said: ‘At least leave the stadium on the bus and ask your chauffeur to catch up with you 10 minutes from the stadium and then go as you wish.’

“And this guy still wasn’t happy in the dressing room.

“I went to the press conference and after that, when I arrived to the team bus a Rolls Royce with his chauffeur were parked beside it.

“After all the car was new and ‘his excellency’ would like to leave the stadium in his Rolls Royce.

“Now how do we deal with this? You never go in the Rolls Royce? You can go when I’m happy?

“Or you solve this thing in another way to get me ‘on vacation’,” Mourinho said at the ANTF Coaches Forum in Portimao.
