Video: Jose Mourinho Shades Manchester United Youth Set Up After Taking Tottenham Job

Jose Mourinho shaded Manchester United‘s youth set up after taking the Tottenham job this week.

Mourinho was appointed as Mauricio Pochettino’s replacement at Spurs on Wednesday.

And as is the norm with Mourinho, there’s no shortage of discussion around whether or not he’s the right man for the job.

Tottenham have been renowned over recent years for promoting quality players from their youth academy – including Harry Kane, Harry Winks, Danny Rose and Kyle Walker-Peters.

Mourinho has been regularly criticised throughout his career for not promoting enough youngsters to his first teams.

But he doesn’t agree with that – and believes it’s been a result of the clubs he’s been at not having good enough quality emerging from the academy.

Mourinho used Manchester United as an example of that while speaking to BT Sport this week:

Is Mourinho right to say United didn’t have the quality in their Under 23 set up though?

He did hand a first team debut to Scott McTominay – and that’s ended up benefitting United and Scotland as he develops into a quality player.
