Manchester United captain Antonio Valencia has apologized for liking an Instagram post which called for manager Jose Mourinho to be sacked. The 33-year-old, who reports said had fallen out with Mourinho, returned to the team for Tuesday’s barren draw with Valencia in the Champions League.
After the game, he liked a picture of himself which had the caption: “It’s time for Mourinho to go”. The Ecuadorian later wrote that he liked the post “without reading the text”.
Valencia, who joined United from Wigan in 2009, had missed United’s previous two games – their Carabao Cup exit to Derby, and 3-1 defeat by West Ham in the Premier League. They are 10th in the league after their worst start to a season in 29 years.
