Jose Mourinho’s spell at Manchester United was riddled with controversy and fall outs.
Former Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has now revealed that the Portuguese manager can be a beast with people who are not hardworking and honest.
Mourinho has fallen out with several players over the years and Herrera claims that if you are upfront with him and you work hard, you won’t have any issues with him.
Despite the negatives, Mourinho did manage to deliver at Old Trafford immediately.
He managed to win the Europa League, the League Cup and the Community shield in his first season at the club.
Herrera was a key part of Mourinho’s plans that year and he put in some splendid performances. He was also rewarded with the player of the year title that year.
Speaking to the media, Herrera said: “I only feel gratitude to him. The first of the seasons was fantastic, with three titles and I was chosen by the fans as the best player of the season. He’s got personality yes but if you’re up front with him, work hard, don’t hide and don’t mess him about, you won’t have any problems. I understand him because I think the same, you have to be tough and mature. He’s a beast with people who aren’t honest.”
Mourinho repeatedly had issues with the likes of Anthony Martial and Luke Shaw during his time at the club because they did not work as hard.
The former United boss also slammed his players publicly.
The Portuguese is now in charge of Tottenham and it will be interesting to see how that chapter of his career unfolds in the coming months.
