Mourinho goes bananas: United boss predicts his fatigued side ‘will probably lose’ at Middlesbrough as he hits out at ‘enemies’ and defends Rojo after peeling fruit for Argentine in Rostov win

Jose Mourinho predicted his tired Manchester United side will lose at Middlesbrough on Sunday and insisted Marcos Rojo eating a banana in desparate search of energy is no laughing matter, during a post-match attack on his side’s ‘enemies’.                                             
The Red Devils snuck past Rostov thanks to Juan Mata’s goal, which secured a 2-1 aggregate win in the Europa League, but United visibly tired as they struggled to maintain their dominant start, having played nearly an hour with 10 men in their FA Cup defeat by Chelsea on Monday night.

The banana was handed to defender Rojo in a bid to combat fatigue, which Mourinho insisted was absolutely necessary given his side’s packed schedule, as they prepare to travel to Middlesbrough for a 12pm kick-off on Sunday.
