Jose Mourinho has reportedly becomes an isolated figure at Old Trafford after clashing with more Manchester United players. The beleaguered United boss claimed on Monday that he still has the support of his players but admitted: ‘Some care more than others.’Mourinho added: ‘I am still the kid that I was 20 years ago and I am still naive, but I still don’t believe that a player is not honest.’  However, it has emerged in the media that he criticised Antonio Valencia for not attending last week’s Carabao Cup defeat by Derby County in his role as club captain before dropping him for the trip to West Ham. Mourinho is understood to barely be on speaking terms with skipper Valencia having stripped Paul Pogba of the vice-captaincy in his ongoing fallout with the Frenchman.Alexis Sanchez was also axed for the damaging defeat at West Ham, a decision that left United’s highest earner furious and contemplating his future at Old Trafford just eight months after signing from Arsenal. Mourinho had already upset Marcus Rashford after questioning his attitude in a team meeting last week, and it was notable that the England striker refused to celebrate after scoring for United in a 3-1 defeat. Several players – including Anthony Martial, Eric Bailly and Andreas Pereira – have sided with Pogba against Mourinho as the divisions in the United camp continue to grow. There are now serious concerns over just many first-team players remain loyal to the 55-year-old coach. Mourinho insisted on Monday that he doesn’t fear for his job but would not say if he has held talks with United chief Ed Woodward ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Valencia.Photo Credit: Getty
