Man United players "stunned" by Jose Mourinho's treatment of Luke Shaw

But the United manager's response to what was after all a comfortable victory was an astonishing psychological tactic that may ultimately backfire

Man United players "stunned" by Jose Mourinho's treatment of Luke Shaw

Manager Jose Mourinho's team were also knocked out of the League Cup quarter-finals after a shock defeat by Championship (second tier) side Bristol City.

Manchester United will return to action after the global break against Swansea City in the Premier League on Saturday, March 31.

One man who certainly won't be leaving is Nemanja Matic, who knows exactly what's required in order to work and thrive under Mourinho.

Almost four years on from that move, though, and Shaw has amassed just 62 matches in a Manchester United shirt - a tally which is five fewer than he managed in two full seasons with Southampton.

"Because I always want to win more and more, but in the Premier League you have six or seven teams who want to win the league". Substituted at half-time in the FA Cup win over Brighton, the Daily Star says that Shaw is being linked with moves to Tottenham, Leicester and former club Southampton.

According to Talk Sport, Tony said on the Weekend Sports Breakfast: "I don't like it when managers go for players, scapegoats".

Ashraf Sehrai replaces Geelani as interim chairman of TeH
Sehrai, who is from Tikkipora in Lolab region of north Kashmir is known to be a hardcore Jamaat leader. "There is a set-up". Before that, Sehrai had given a miss to executive council meetings of the Tehreek-e-Hurriyat and the Hurriyat as well.

He had a spell out of favour under Louis van Gaal and he was also used sparingly in Mourinho's first campaign in charge last season. You have four competitions in the season - if you win one, for me, it's not enough, but you always have to do your best.

However, Mourinho singled out Matic as being "an island of personality, desire and control" - and Matic was equally complimentary about his manager.

Mourinho lambasted at his players even after a comfortable stride against Brighton and advised them to wake up.

The pair are locked in a battle to win the PFA Player of the Year award and both were offloaded by Mourinho during his time at Chelsea.

As Wenger has shown, however, and Mourinho is now learning, if you want to keep your job when your team starts to lose, your philosophy can't be built on believing that winning is all that matters.

United have won 12 FA Cups, most recently in 2016, Louis van Gaal's final season.
