Mourinho sends message to Man United fans ahead of plane banner protest

Jose Mourinho has thanked the Manchester United supporters ahead of the Red Devils’ clash with Tottenham, in which a section of the fanbase is planning a protest.

United were beaten 3-2 by Brighton at the Amex Stadium last time out, but fans stuck around after the game had ended to chant Mourinho’s name.

Manchester United are currently going through a period of turmoil with problems off the pitch, but it seems supporters are making it clear they are on Mourinho’s side.

Instead their problem is with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, and the club’s owners, the Glazer family – the targets of their planned protest for Monday night.

Fans have paid for a plane to fly a banner reading: "Ed out – Love United hate Glazers" over Old Trafford on Monday.

Ahead of the match, Mourinho reflected on the support he and his team received against Leicester City and Brighton.

"The supporters were fantastic in both matches," said Mourinho. "Not for me, for the team, which is the only thing that matters.

"In my career I was never selfish and thinking about myself, I was always a club man. That’s what I am. I am really happy when the supporters support the team.

"Against Leicester, you can say in a normal situation because the team was playing well and was winning. To be supportive of the team against Brighton, where we didn’t play well and lost the match, it gives you a fantastic feeling.

"I hope that feeling, the players also feel it and the players are ready to give them everything they have."
