Jose Mourinho's reign at Old Trafford has turned sour in the past few months and now United look set to play in front of thousands of empty seats against Valencia tonight.
A sulking manager who has become irrevocably cautious, who has made several awful recruitment choices, who routinely chucks his players under a bus, who has always enjoyed confounding the desires of those naive fools who value elan and whom he brazenly mischaracterises as preferring style over substance when what they really want is both? "The leaders need to be on the pitch".
Now we are witnessing something similar as he has clearly had a massive fall-out with Paul Pogba and it has come down to a straight fight between player and manager to see who can outlast each other at United.

Speaking to the official Liverpool FC website , Mignolet said: "I was pleased to be on the pitch". Let us know in the comments section below.
"I see different actions but what you see is not really inside".
'The team is always more important than individual.
But with most of the squad badly out of form, and several apparently at loggerheads with the manager, it is hard to predict who will start here.
Manchester United didn't lose, but they didn't win either. They do it, they don't do it that's a different story, but I repeat I am naive or I still believe the player is an honest man'.
The match against Valencia will be crucial for Manchester United as they are gonna play two back-to-back home games in the Champions League as Juventus is set to tour Old Trafford on October 23, 2018.
