“Stop playing Pokemon GO, or GO out!” – Mourinho to MUFC players

The release of Pokemon Go might have created a worldwide phenomenon, but Manchester United coach, Jose Mourinho seemed unfazed, as he has officially banned the game from United’s dressing room.

World class players such as Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann have spent their downtime joining the fun of the latest gaming craze.

However, the outspoken Portuguese manager has issued a 48-hour ban from the game before any fixtures to ensure the players can give their full commitment on the pitch.

“Mourinho has a good relationship with his players and staffs, and he thinks it’ll be best for them to rest from training and any sort of video games.

“He wants the players to be left alone 48 hours before the match, so that they can focus on the tactics,” said a club source to Daily Star.

This wouldn’t make a difference to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but what about the younger lads like Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard? 😛
