Jose Mourinho “ferociously” rounded on Manchester United’s players in the dressing room after the Red Devils’ shock 2-1 loss to Huddersfield Town last weekend, according to reports in the British media.

The Independent is reporting that the Portuguese coach was livid with his players’ performances against the newly-promoted side.

The same report claims that Mourinho has seen the performance coming after a week of poor training from his Manchester United players.

The story also claims that it was midfielder Ander Herrera and striker Anthony Martial who received the harshest criticism from the Manchester United manager after last weekend’s game.

The result was Manchester United’s first Premier League defeat of the season and it left them second in the table and five points behind leaders Manchester City after nine games.

Mourinho’s men will aim to get back to winning ways in the top flight when they take on Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

Manchester United are aiming to challenge for the title this season after they finished sixth and won the Europa League and League Cup last term.

Mourinho is aiming to become the first manager to lead the Red Devils to the Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2013.
