Jose Mourinho: We won’t win against Young Boys if we do this

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has admitted his players won’t win the fixture against Young Boys if they play with the same mentality as they did against Crystal Palace.

The Portuguese manager watched on as his stars fell to a draw with Roy Hodgson’s men at Old Trafford and couldn’t spur them on to victory.

The former Chelsea manager’s job has been on the line all season long and he’s quickly running out of time to rescue his position.

Mourinho’s men are at serious risk of missing out on the top four spots let alone challenging for the title they were expected to this season.

United can make amends against Young Boys in the upcoming fixture in the Champions League on Tuesday but another draw could see him move closer to the exit door.

According to iAfrica, Jose said: “If we play with the same philosophy against Young Boys, then we won’t win and we will have to go to Valencia (in the final Champions League group game) and win there.

“There are games that are special games and not just one more match. This was a special game, the first of eight Premier League games before the end of December and one we needed to win.

“There was not enough from the heart. You must play with brain and also with heart and I think there was not enough heart.”

The Red Devils stars were previously accused of not putting in enough fight or showing enough determination in matches of so called less importance.

Jose could make up for the poor record in the league by putting in better performances in the Champions League.

A win against Young Boys would seriously help their chances in qualifying into the next stage having previously beaten Juventus last time out.
