Man United fans bemoan the state of club’s future after U23 defeat

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.
