The Portuguese boss wants United‘s players fully focused on match-days and is thought to have imposed a new set of rules over what they can publish.

The report states that Mourinho’s men have been told not to publish any pictures from training from two days before games.

And they have even been banned from posting pictures from the team bus onto the likes of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat.

It is claimed that Mourinho was left fuming when Luke Shaw posted footage of him training at home as he recovered from a groin injury in November.
