Video: Jose Mourinho Attacks His Players’ Attitude in Huddersfield Defeat

Jose Mourinho wasn’t happy with the attitude of his Manchester United players in their defeat to Huddersfield.

The Old Trafford giants were humbled at the home of the Terriers this afternoon as goals from Aaron Mooy and Laurent Depoitre gave the hosts their first victory in this fixture since 1952.

While there has been criticism of Mourinho’s approach to getting a point away at Liverpool last weekend, there’s no denying that United have made a good start to the season.

So you would have fancied their attacking firepower to find a way past a Huddersfield team still getting to grips with life in the top flight.

But that wasn’t the case – and Mourinho wasn’t happy with his players when speaking about their attitude after the game:

You can hear the rest of Mourinho’s post-match press conference here:

It’s not often Mourinho has spoken about his players this way in this season and fans will be hoping that isn’t a sign of things to come over the next few games.

United travel to Swansea in the Premier League on Tuesday and will want to bounce back from today’s loss with a victory.

Then they play Tottenham next weekend in what is bound to be a tough game – before welcoming Benfica to Old Trafford in the Champions League.
