Jose Mourinho is famous for creating a siege mentality within his squads, but all too often the Manchester United boss wanders into tin-foil hat territory when it comes to media criticism.

His paranoia has really stepped up a gear over the past few weeks, in which he's picked a baffling battle with his own club's fans over their lack of appreciation for summer signing Romelu Lukaku.

"My only concern about Mourinho is that he seems to be distracted by the so-called critics out there,"

"He is probably paid eight, nine or ten million pounds a year so focus on your own job. Rise above that. He should be better than that, but he seems to be easily upset.

"Shut up and get on with your job. You are getting very well paid for it."

Needless to say he then went on to address the United fans, saying:

"They are going along nicely and one of the problems in Manchester at the moment is United fans are looking at what City are doing, how they are playing and the goals they are getting, but United just have to keep their heads down and keep winning matches," the Republic of Ireland assistant manager added.

"If I was a player at United now, I'd be saying keep our heads down, let's keep chipping away. The trophies are not handed out now. Let's keep focused, keep winning and see what happens."
