Man United Send Club Legends Message Asking Them Not To Criticise Jose Mourinho
Manchester United have taken steps in reminding their club ambassadors of their loyalties to the side, and to be 'careful' when talking about affairs in public, such as not criticising under-fire manager Jose Mourinho.
t gotten off to the best of starts to the season. Throughout his tenure, there has been reports of strain between him and players such as Anthony Martial, Luke Shaw and Paul Pogba, with the players not performing - and, in some cases, even vacating Man United's pre-season tour of America to see their new-born baby and not return when asked.

It's fair to say, despite his talent, Mourinho hasn't handled a number of his players well, and so now there's rumours of discontent in the dressing room, as Man United have gone off to one of their worst starts in recent memory.
And now, reports have emerged suggesting that Man United have sent an e-mail to their ambassadors.
A report in the Metro said today:
"United employ the likes of Dwight Yorke, Andy Cole, Bryan Robson, Denis Irwin and Ji-sung Park in an ambassadorial capacity and all have been reminded of their obligations."
Dwight Yorke said about Manchester City's dominance over Man United via the Metro back in May:
"I think they would definitely win the league because they are on the front foot, playing attacking football.
"Look at the other side and the blue half of Manchester. Don't tell me those players are far superior than the players we have. 'You look at Anthony Martial, (Marcus) Rashford, (Jesse) Lingard, you look at (Alexis) Sanchez, (Romelu) Lukaku.
"We have got a very, very strong attacking line-up.' The likes of Paul Scholes and Paul Ince have been openly critical of Mourinho, but the Special One is, according to the Daily Mail, said to have been particularly angered by Yorke's withering assessment given he is employed by the club.
