Jose Mourinho says his players must learn to cope with the pressure and expectation that comes with being at Manchester United.
The United boss has issued reality checks to both his playing squad and the supporters following their woeful exit form the Champions League in midweek.
Mourinho says there are many players in the Sevilla side that would get into his XI and the boss has warned his underperforming big names to ‘grow up’.
“They have to learn how to cope with that level of expectation and that level of pressure and they have to survive and when they survive they become stronger,” Mourinho said.
“You know, easy life, and the fans not upset and no critics, that’s not good.That’s not good, because if you want to make a real top team with top mentality they need to grow up.
“They need to grow up and the best way to grow up is to have this kind of feeling. So, I don’t want the fans to have lower expectations, I want the fans to have high expectations because I want the players to have high expectations too.”
