Antonio Valencia has said sorry after he liked a post about Jose Mourinho being sacked.
It was another frustrating night for Manchester United fans last night as they produced a flat performance in a 0-0 draw with Valencia.
Mourinho’s men hadn’t won in three games going into the Champions League clash in Spain and the weekend’s 3-1 defeat at West Ham was a low point in his career as United boss.
So the performance and result against Valencia just added to the frustration of United supporters – with some believing Mourinho now has to go for things to improve at Old Trafford.
Oddly, Valencia was seen liking one post in particular about Mourinho being sacked:

Valencia liking the post quickly circulated on social media and added to the rumours that the United squad are unhappy under the leadership of the Portuguese coach.
But the Ecuadorian has now apologised for this and claimed he didn’t know what the text accompanying the pictures of him actually said:
Yesterday, I liked a post on Instagram without reading the text that accompanied the picture. These are not my views and I apologise for this. I am fully supportive of the manager and my teammates. We are all giving our everything to improve the results. pic.twitter.com/bMEsrAwMkh

Given Valencia has been a regular under Mourinho at United, you’d be surprised if he was actually unhappy with his manager.
