José Mourinho fancies himself something of a rock star, so it was fitting when he reacted to Marouane Fellaini rescuing Manchester United with a late winner by treating a couple water bottle carriers like a guitar and kick drum at the end of a metal show.
United hosted the young boys of Young Boys in the Champions League today. This should’ve been an opportunity for the Red Devils to batter their vastly outmatched Swiss opponents and in doing so earn some needed confidence during this season (though at this point isn’t it more of an era?) of discontent.
