Liverpool legend Carragher slams 'whining' Man Utd players

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher says Jose Mourinho is right to criticise his Manchester United players in public.

It's believed a number of players in the dressing room were unhappy with Mourinho's dressing down after last weekend's defeat to Watford.

Carragher told the Daily Mail: “Mourinho was right in his assessment of the goal that led Manchester United to lose at Watford.

“I'm not condoning this happening every week but there is nothing wrong if a manager publicly criticises someone now and again to get a reaction.

“Managers aren't allowed to say anything bad about players now, not even if their criticism is valid, in case they get upset.

“I couldn't believe someone chose to inform a newspaper on Shaw's behalf that England's left-back was unhappy at the way Mourinho spoke about him.

“I was equally amazed to read a report that other players were 'shocked' by some of his words behind closed doors.

“These players represent Manchester United, a club where you have to win. They haven't done much winning for three years but they have become good at whining."
