Man Utd captain Valencia issues response to Mourinho spat talk

during the Group H match of the UEFA Champions League between Manchester United and Valencia at Old Trafford on October 2, 2018 in Manchester, United Kingdom.

Manchester United captain Antonio Valencia has responded to rumours that there has been a fall out between himself and Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho has come under intense pressure under the last fortnight after a string of bad results. His side were booed off on Tuesday night after a mundane goalless draw against Valencia.

Despite the fact most of his team-mates chose to avoid speaking to the media after the game, Valencia responded to questions that Mourinho has lost the dressing room.

Asked if he is fully behind his manager, he replied: “100%. He is our boss, we have to be with him and we are fighting.

“I have never had any problem with anyone, thank God. The decision [about Pogba losing the captaincy] is for the coach to make, now we need to see the positives.

“We played an important game and got a point, now we have a game against Newcastle and we need to fight.

“What I can say from the inside is that the lads are calm, working every day with a good attitude. We haven’t got good results and that’s why rumours arise.”
