Manchester United fans voiced discontent with their favorite football club’s performance and blamed it on coach Jose Mourinho after the editor for the Manchester Evening News, Samuel Lukchurst, posted a video of a one-touch keep-ball training session on Monday.
Fans tweeted that the particular Rondo session was the “worst thing” they’d ever seen, as players seemed to show a lack of energy or effort, with some users saying that the Portuguese manager was behind a second-rate session less than two weeks before the 2018/2019 Premier League campaign kicks off.

It literally looks like we haven’t trained this in 2 years…— Andrew Southwick (@RedBeardedRed) 31 июля 2018 г.
And then you wonder why Jose is giving out about the quality he has on tour and wanting more players. An under 10 team would do a better rondo than these muppets 🙄🙄🙄😂😂😂 https://t.co/TEjU7LnNYf— Paddy Campbell (@Paddy15c) 30 июля 2018 г.
Others decided to express their emotions as a result of the video in gifs…
…trolling the footballers by drawing somewhat amusing parallels:
Ahead of the game against Real Madrid on August 1, Mourinho revealed that he wanted to sign two more players, with ESPN reporting that the manager was eyeing getting a center-back and a right-winger before the August 9 transfer deadline. He has already signed midfielder Fred, right-back Diogo Dalot and goalkeeper Lee Grant for a total of 68 million pounds.
