"It's Disgraceful"- Chris Sutton Not Happy With Mourinho's Treatment Of Fans On Final Day

"It's Disgraceful"- Chris Sutton Not Happy With Mourinho's Treatment Of Fans On Final Day
By Mikey Traynor

Jose Mourinho made the headlines on the final day of them Premier League season despite the fact that Manchester United were playing an ultimately meaningless fixture against Crystal Palace.

Having made it perfectly clear that he did not care about the result by playing a team consisting of many of the club's U23 side, he would have been pleasantly surprised by the maturity of the performance as they earned a 2-0 win through goals from Josh Harrop and Paul Pogba, and yet he decided against discussing the performance to the media.

Mourinho's post match interview and press conference went viral as he essentially shut them down within seconds of them starting by claiming that he had a final to plan for in the Europa League. Some called it disrespectful, some called it funny, everyone agreed that it was odd. Even for Jose.

But snubbing the media was not the only thing Jose did by trying to get out of Old Trafford as quickly as possible, as he also elected not to address the fans after the final game of the season, which is the first time that has happened for a long time.

Louis Van Gaal did it, Alex Ferguson always made a point to do it, and even Ryan Giggs did it when he was interim boss after the Moyes season, yet Jose had nothing to say.

That irked Chris Sutton who completely interrupted Pat Nevin, who was trying to suggest that perhaps he was a tad embarrassed at the league performance, and labelled the decision to not address the fans as disgraceful.

You have to thank the fans.

It's disgraceful that as manager of Manchester United, he can't show his appreciation to those fans who pay their hard earned money week in and week out to support the club. He is the manager.

It's a weird situation.

While every Man Utd manager addresses the crowd at the end of the season... Sunday was not the end of Man Utd's season, as it hinges entirely on the Europa League final.

However, as it has emerged that the club will decline a parade if they do win the trophy, it was Mourinho's last chance to thank the fans in person.

Mark Chapman, a Man Utd fan himself, didn't see too impressed, and while he would have said very little other than a 'thank you' for the support and a rallying cry for Stockholm, perhaps he should have just done it anyway.
