Manchester United fans aren't happy with the behaviour of their players after Huddersfield loss

With storm Brian battering the majority of England on Saturday afternoon, some football fans would have been forgiven for wanting to stay at home, rather than travelling to watch their team play.

And those Manchester United fans that travelled the 30-odd miles to Huddersfield must be wishing they hadn’t bothered.

They watched their side produce a lacklustre performance and get beaten 2-1 by David Wagner’s men.

Not a great way to spend your Saturday afternoon.

Even Jose Mourinho had to admit the Red Devils deserved nothing from the match.

He claimed that “the best team won” and suggested that United weren’t good enough from the very first whistle.

“It’s not fair to say that the mistakes were responsible for the defeat. They are in the context,” he said.

“But no since the first minute the game was poor for us and we paid the price and we deserved it.”


And as if those United fans hadn’t suffered enough, the players didn’t exactly make it up to them afterward.

Manchester Evening News editor, Samuel Luckhurst, revealed that only four players went over to applaud the travelling supporters.

“Rashford, Lingard, Smalling and Young only ones who applauded fans,” he wrote.

And, as you’d expect, United fans weren’t impressed with that.

Terrible attitude.

Mourinho on United's attitude

And Mourinho was speaking about that attitude after the match, suggesting that it wasn’t good enough the whole match.

"The attitude was really poor," he said.

"So they beat us on attitude and when I lose matches I like to lose matches because the opponent was better than us. When you lose a match because of attitude that's really bad.

"I don't even remember a friendly match where our attitude was so poor. "
