Jose Mourinho trolled Chris Smalling
In his post match interview, Jose Mourinho was asked to talk about Chris Smalling.
Smalling has struggled for game time this season at United.
After missing out in United’s opening two matches, Smalling has played 90 minutes in United’s last three games.
Mourinho was happy to praise his centre half after the Watford game.
But Mourinho also used the opportunity to make fun of Smalling’s new look.
