Mourinho BLASTS 'unfit' Manchester United duo after Swansea victory

Smalling has been sidelined with a foot injury since the 4-0 defeat to Chelsea, while Shaw, who started at left-back in Thursday’s Europa League defeat to Fenerbahce, informed the United manager of his inability to play against Swansea on Sunday morning.

Before the victory at the Liberty Stadium, Mourinho said of Smalling and Shaw: ‘Smalling doesn’t feel that he can play 100 per cent with his pain.

‘Luke Shaw told me this morning that he was not in the condition to play so we had to build a defensive line.’

And after the match, Mourinho was asked if he felt the pair needed to change their attitude: ‘Exactly. More than for me more, for Man United.

‘I mean that we have players with problems but we have on the pitch players with problems. That is what I mean.

‘In every sport, and I know that in other sports, they play at the highest level, how many times you play and you are not 100 per cent.

‘I have a friend who is a big tennis player and he remembers more the times he played with pain than the times he played without any pain and that is what I mean.’
