Jose Mourinho has always been a controversial figure to say the least. We have covered some of his antics in this very blog and it’s because it’s pretty much impossible to not find the head of Manchester United fascinating in everything that he does and doesn’t do, both in the public and in private.
The latest rumbling from Old Trafford is the Manchester United's insistence on arranging a training session on Christmas Day, meaning that his players and 70 odd staff will not have much of a christmas.
In fact, Mourinho did the same thing last year -then changed his mind last minute and let the majority of employees have the day- and the Manchester United staff are praying that he changes his mind again. For Jose, it’s all about football, football, football, win, win, win and no doubt some mind games are, as ever. at play again.
