Jose Mourinho addresses rumors of a row with key player


Jose Mourinho has categorically dismissed claims that he has had a falling out with midfielder Ander Herrera.

Manchester United suffered a very disappointing 2-1 defeat against Huddersfield Town a few weeks ago and following the shock, Red Devils’ midfielder Ander Herrera did not hold back in his criticism of the performance from his side.

Due to Herrera’s very public outburst, it had been claimed that the midfielder had fallen out with manager Jose Mourinho but the Portuguese tactician has gone on to emphatically reject such claims – stating that his relationship with the Spaniard could not be any better.

Speaking ahead of United’s clash against Chelsea, Mourinho said, “I was not speaking with Ander Herrera anymore? Pfft! Ander Herrera is the kind of guy that I have to push away because he wants to speak with me all the time!

“I don’t know where you get these kinds of stories but, yes, I am happy. I love my players. You try to create a mystery because of my reaction after Huddersfield, but there is no mystery about it.”
