Change of tone
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has got himself tangled up in hypocrisy following his latest Marcus Rashford comments.
The Portuguese manager has always been under the spotlight when it comes to the press interviews but he took it to another level last night.
Man United starlet Marcus Rashford went down injured during the game against Benfica and we are yet to find out the extent of the players’ injury.
Though, in his post-match interview, there was one line that really caught the eye of some on social media.
Talking about how other managers respond to their players being injured, he explained that all they do is whine.
“I never speak about injuries. Other managers, they cry, they cry, they cry when some player is injured. I don’t cry.”
Safe to say, some on social media were taken aback by these comments and were swift in their replies.
This most notable one from Paddy Power showcases times last season in which Mourinho chose to speak about injuries.
Game, set and match, Mourinho.

Fans react to Rashford injury
While Mourinho’s comments are the talking point today, some are still distraught over Marcus Rashford’s injury.
The Englishman went down during the game and Mourinho’s comments following the clash were certainly not the most encouraging.
That sent some fans into meltdown with their boy wonder potentially looking at some time on the sidelines.
Lukaku shows his class
Another big talking point during the game was from Benfica goalkeeper Mile Svilar who became the youngster keeper to play in the Champions League.
Though, it will still be a night to forget after his vital error gave Manchester United the win in Portugal.
Even further to that, Romelu Lukaku was in for a lot of praise after the game having consoled the young Belgian.
The Belgian was seen talking to the player and making sure he knew that it happens to the best of us.
