Mourinho Sends Another Message To Man Utd Stars

After being criticised for claiming that some of his players do not have strong mentalities, Jose Mourinho has sent yet another message to his Manchester United squad.

In the build-up to United's Premier League fixture with Crystal Palace this past weekend, the Portuguese tactician accused some of his younger players for lacking "character".

Mourinho received some backlash for his comments, especially following their 0-0 draw at home with Palace on Saturday.

Now, after reports that, with just three wins in nine home matches this season, some of his players prefer playing away games, the Red Devils boss has insisted they should then rather stay home.

"If you feel pressure, stay at home – and when I say home, I don't say stadium home, I say home home and watch on TV," Mourinho said, according to Sky Sports.

"If you feel pressure to play matches at home where the people come to support... come on.

"I never felt pressure to play at home."

Mourinho also said he wants his team to start games stronger.

"It's frustrating because what I want is the team to start strong, is the team to go strong on the opponent, not to be waiting, not to be reactive but proactive," he added.

"That's exactly what I want and probably you or the fans, they think 'Oh, Jose told them to start slow', 'Jose told them to play nice and easy and wait to see what happens' or 'to be losing for then to react'.

"It is exactly the opposite thing. I want the team to start strong, I want the team to have a go immediately, and it is a bit frustrating."
