Jose Mourinho was ‘fuming’ before Chelsea
According to the Daily Mail on Monday, Jose Mourinho was “fuming” before Saturday’s Premier League match at Chelsea.
That’s after Man United’s line-up was reportedly leaked on social media prior to the game.
The Mail suggest that a “mole” inside Man United’s camp leaked the sensitive information.
Mourinho has now launched an internal investigation to unearth the supposed leaker. Readers are told:
The United manager was left fuming after waking up at the team’s hotel to find his selected 11 accurately posted on social media and wants to know how the information got out.
The last thing Mourinho wanted on Saturday was for his former club Chelsea to gain any advantage. Prior knowledge of Juan Mata’s inclusion gave Maurizio Sarri and his staff insight into how United would set up.
