Man Utd Double winner: Mourinho has me more and more concerned

Manchester United hero Paul Parker has hit out at the appointment of Jose Mourinho.

United slumped to a shock 3-1 defeat to Watford on Sunday. Following the game, Mourinho singled out Luke Shaw for his poor performance.

Parker told Eurosport: "I've been concerned from the moment Manchester United took him on and his scathing remarks about Luke Shaw only make me more concerned.

"Mourinho thinks he can go around and say what he wants – because of his name and what he's achieved – and the players will accept it.

"Newsflash: they won't. If it was Sir Alex Ferguson, the players would bite their tongues, but even he never went to the press and pulled out one player.

"You would have thought Mourinho had learnt his lesson from Chelsea.

"There's a lot of worried supporters right now. They know the history of the man.

"Sure, there are some who believe Mourinho will win the Premier League in his first season, but there are many more who fear déjà vu and Chelsea round two.

"Why did they take on someone who upset so many people at Stamford Bridge?"
