REVEALED: The 3 Man Utd players Mourinho would moan most about

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho was fed-up having to work with three players at Manchester United, it has been claimed.

The Times says Mourinho would moan about being stuck with Matteo Darmian, Daley Blind and Marcos Rojo during his time at Manchester United.

The current Tottenham boss felt the Red Devils were not good enough at selling players and, as a result, often had no choice but to play them.

Darmian was often benched throughout his time at United, unable to get in ahead of the likes of Antonio Valencia and Luke Shaw at right-back and left-back.

Rojo flourished in Mourinho's first season and was given a big contract extension but the Argentina international, too, was often forced to settle for a substitutes role.

Blind was sold to Ajax by Mourinho but it appears he'd hoped to offload the Dutchman long before his departure in 2018.
