How Jose Mourinho Reacted To Manchester United's Loss To Huddersfield

One doesn't exactly have to search too long to find a Manchester United manager reacting in an unhappy fashion. However Saturday saw the first time that the manager in question was Jose Mourinho.

Manchester United during the Sir Alex Ferguson was obviously synonymous with success but that glory was often seemingly attributed to two cliches that hung over Old Trafford for more than two decades.

How often would a victory, or draw, be attributed to the Red Devils scoring a goal in what would come to be known as 'Fergie time?' But then how often would one of those goals be down to a half-time 'hairdryer' treatment by the legendary Scot.

On Saturday it was Mourinho's turn to be fuming with his players as they suffered their first loss of the season in a 2-1 defeat at Huddersfield in a listless display from the title challengers.

According to the Daily Mail the players received their first hairdryer under the 'Special One's' management with Jose throwing his coat to the floor in fury before laying into the team's defenders.

Strangely Victor Lindelof was reportedly spared any blame and much of the ire from the team's manager. The centre back was at fault for both goals having only just come on as a sub for the injured Phil Jones.

Things haven't gone well for the former Benfica centre-back since his move from Portugal and he has yet to get much game time in the Premier League. The lack of attack on him by Jose might have been to not damage his confidence further.

Some reports have also said that Mourinho was off with his players in training in Monday and they didn't take too kindly to the cold shoulder that he gave them after the loss.

It's yet to be seen whether the first loss of the season and reaction will derail United's title bid but after the last two games they are now five points behind Manchester City.
