It’s fair to say that Manchester United’s pre-season hasn’t exactly ran smoothly so far.
On the pitch, the United players found themselves on the wrong end of a hiding as they were beaten 4-1 by Borussia Dortmund on Friday.
And things haven’t been going to plan off the field either for new boss Jose Mourinho.
On Sunday, the United manager was scheduled to take part in a media conference in Beijing during the club’s pre-season tour of China, which will see them take on rivals Manchester City on Monday.
But Mourinho was left frustrated at having to hold a bizarre conference at the side of the pitch – because the temperature in the initial room was too high and the area was too cramped to fit the large number of journalists who were attending.
The former Chelsea gaffer was forced to answer questions while his side trained on the pitch, and was particularly moody with his responses.
When asked if he was happy about his native Portugal winning Euro 2016, he retorted in true Mourinho fashion and mocked the question posed by one reporter.
A cheesed off Jose Mourinho is asked if he is happy Portugal won Euro 2016!

Mourinho snarled at another question when asked if he would shake the hand of City boss Pep Guardiola when the two sides met in Monday night’s friendly.
