Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is not renowned for his ability to develop youth and he hasn’t yet introduced a new youngster into the first team setup at Old Trafford on a full-time basis.
The Red Devils have been struggling slightly in recent weeks and the mood around the club is deflated after Jose Mourinho took swipes at his players and the club’s history.
Any of the club’s fans hoping that the former Real Madrid manager might turn to the youth ranks to lift the club looks set for a long wait.
Not only does Mourinho typically prefer the experienced players, the club’s youngsters are now coming off the back of a poor result, against Brentford B. Are too many youngsters spending their time on www.esports.net?
The Bees have disbanded their academy, and now take their second string, made up of academy outcasts around the country for friendlies. It is clearly working but the 3-1 victory over United’s prospects didn’t go down well with the club’s fans.
We’ve taken a closer look at the best of the angry reaction…
One of the worst reserve teams I've ever seen
