Man Utd boss Mourinho tees off on analyst Cerra in bench rant

Jose Mourinho blasted his coaching staff before kick-off of Manchester United's Europa League clash with Zorya Luhansk.

Footage shows the Portuguese teeing off on analyst Giovanni Cerra after a conversation with assistant Rui Faria as United prepared for the Thursday night meeting at Old Trafford.

Midfielder Paul Pogba appeared to be confused after a quick conversation with Mourinho and Faria before the Red Devils boss walked forcefully to the bench to point something out to Cerra.

It is understood that a late change to Zorya's line-up prompted Mourinho to make an alteration himself, which made Pogba unclear on which player he had to mark.

Mourinho said of the bench rant: "It was set-pieces, organisation.

"They changed their team for the game and Paul was a bit confused.

"I want my systems to take care of all the details."

United eventually beat the Ukrainian side 1-0 thanks to Zlatan Ibrahimovic's 69th-minute header to open their winning account for the European season.
