Mourinho tells players: ‘stay home’ if you can’t handle Old Trafford pressure

Per the Telegraph, a January move is possible, but only if Jose Mourinho is seen as the long term manager at the club.

Mourinho's comments about his players have come back under scrutiny ahead of Tuesday's Champions League tie against Young Boys after he questioned their "heart" following the goalless draw with Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has again come under fire from some of the club's former stars, with Rio Ferdinand accusing them of being negative and Paul Scholes branding them inconsistent.

"I don't want the team to be waiting, not to be reactive but proactive".

"I would say if we have Victor available for the Christmas period when we need, if possible, every player to be available for that hard period until the Newcastle match on 2 January, it will be good".

"I want to play this game as a knockout game and the team we are going to pick is a team that tries to have that happiness to cope with that little pressure to the players that is not a real pressure because the reality is we have one more match to play". Always. I always prefer to play at home. And although they're on the verge of reaching the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League, it is largely thanks to an improbable away win at Juventus where they rode their luck big time.

"I refuse to say that - I think it would be a lack of respect to the stadium and fans to say we prefer to play away from home, I totally refuse to say that", the United manager said.

Traffic congestion also saw Juventus arrive just over an hour and United barely 50 minutes before their clash at Old Trafford that same month. "Let's play this game like a game we have to win". And he says Mourinho's side now represent the antithesis of some of the swashbuckling United teams of yesteryear.

"I don't think it was really aimed as much at us as individuals".

"(Lindelof) does the scan (Tuesday) but, by the experience of the medical department and the feelings of the player, he has a muscular problem and a muscular problem takes time", added Mourinho, who said Lindelof would be out for "quite a while". We train hard for the team and we're just looking forward to putting things right on Tuesday. "But if it isn't better, I walk!"
