Manchester United were held to a 0-0 draw by Valencia in a dour Champions League Group H clash at on Tuesday which piled more pressure on their under-fire manager Jose Mourinho amid reports linking former Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane to his job. I am sat here actually surprised he survived after Saturday, the performance was that bad. "And I don't say more than that", Mourinho told BT Sport. I said in pre-season last season was phenomenal to finish second (in the Premier League).


The club said "significant traffic congestion" was the reason for their late arrival while manager Jose Mourinho blamed the police for not providing them with an escort. We tried to play but in some crucial phases we didn't have the technical quality to build from the back.

"We had probably a couple of the biggest chances to win, but I have accepted the result as a fair result", he said. "We were informed that the police refused an escort". Our attacking players aren't in their best moments of confidence and individual level.

"We have two matches against Juventus to make points".

The result left United second in the group on four points from two games, two behind leaders Juventus who maintained their flawless start with a 3-0 home win over Young Boys.
