Jose Mourinho has once again called on Manchester United fan’s to improve the atmosphere at Old Trafford ahead of his sides crunch Premier League encounter against arch rivals Liverpool this Saturday.
The Portuguese coach has complained on several occasions about the quietness of his teams fans during home games. United’s away supporters are amongst the most vocal in the Premier League, although the atmosphere at Old Trafford is often mockingly described as being similar to a library by opposition fans.
Speaking ahead of the fixture against Jurgen Klopp’s side, Mourinho hailed United’s away support during their recent win against Crystal Palace, and revealed he would like a similar atmosphere generated within Old Trafford on Saturday.
“I think [Liverpool and United] both want to finish top four but we both want to finish second, so I think it is a big game, and then Seville knockout and Brighton knockout so we have three matches at Old Trafford,”
“If possible, [we should] give some tickets to the United fans that were [at Selhurst Park].” Mourinho told MUTV.
The former Chelsea manager rarely says anything in the media some kind of hidden agenda, so maybe he is trying force United’s home fans into proving him wrong by ramping up the volume when their arch rivals visit this weekend.
