Jose Mourinho Takes a Brutal Swipe at Phil Jones and Chris Smalling

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has taken a brutal swipe at defenders Phil Jones and Chris Smalling, with his comments leaving both with an certain future at Old Trafford.

Mourinho looked on from the sidelines today as his patched-up United side laboured to a 1-1 draw at home to relegation-threatened Swansea City, and two more names were added to the Red Devils’ injury list.
