Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has reportedly found out who was leaking his team sheets several hours before matches.
United’s line-up to face Zorya Luhansk in the Europa League was said to have been revealed to the public three hours before kick-off giving the opposition an early insight into the Manchester United team.
Mourinho had launched an investigation back in September in an attempt to find out how his match day squads were been leaked and it now seems as though he has found the culprit.
Only two months ex United defender Gary Neville suggested that someone inside the club had been leaking information to the press and that the leaks may have had something to do with United losing three games in a row back in late September.
According to the English tabloid newspaper the Sun the new United boss was furious at the leaks occurring and that he felt he was been betrayed by someone working inside the club.
Fortunately the leaks have now stopped and news of Mourinho finding the culprit will come as a huge boost to the Portuguese who has endured a difficult start to life at Old Trafford. Mourinho’s defensive tactics combined with off field personal issues on the field have all played a key role in the Portuguese’s tough start to the new campaign but at least one issue has now been finally resolved.
With games against Arsenal, Feyenoord and West Ham United all to come after the international break it brings with it a crucial time for Mourinho. Already sitting eight points off Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table and with Europa League qualification still far from guaranteed Mourinho can simply not afford any more slip ups if he to become a success at Manchester United.
