Mourinho tears Mkhitaryan to pieces after Manchester United’s defeat to Fenerbache

Jose Mourinho has blasted Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the wake of Manchester United’s defeat to Fenerbahce.

The £26 million summer signing from Borussia Dortmund made his long-awaited comeback on Thursday evening as United slipped to a 2-1 loss in Turkey.

Before coming on as a second-half substitute against Fenerbahce, Mkhitaryan hadn’t featured for United since he was brought off at half-time in the 2-1 defeat to Manchester City on September 10.

And Mourinho admits he’s unhappy with the midfielder’s current levels of effort at Old Trafford.

‘He has to do more. It’s as simple as that,’ Mourinho said after the match.

‘We have big expectations at this club, lots of players for these positions and he has to play better than [Juan] Mata, [Jesse] Lingard, [Anthony] Martial… he has to play better than them. It’s as simple as that.

‘Every manager wants to win matches, every manager in the world wants to play the players that he thinks can help the team more, and I’m no different.’
