Man Utd fans respond to Jose Mourinho criticism of atmosphere

Sanchez strike helps United close gap at top of EPL

With big-money summer signing Romelu Lukaku having struggled for consistency over recent months, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic likely to depart Old Trafford this summer after failing to regain his fitness and form following an ACL injury last season, rumours have been rife in the English media that Manchester United will seek to add to their ranks at centre-forward this coming summer.

United's manager complained after Saturday's 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town that the home crowd had been "quiet", as well as drawing unfavourable comparisons with the atmosphere at Portsmouth, whose ground boasts barely a quarter of the capacity of Old Trafford.

Although the timing of his complaint left something to be desired, Old Trafford scarcely communicates the kind of atmosphere one would expect of such a cavernous, frequently-full stadium.

Former WBA lightweight champion Crolla has a season ticket at Old Trafford so has regular first-hand experience of the atmosphere.

The statement read: 'We note our manager's further comments regarding the poor atmosphere within Old Trafford following the Huddersfield home game.

"Any Manchester United fan will tell you that going away is brilliant, I believe we've got the best away support in the Premier League".

This is not the first time Mourinho has questioned the club's fans either.

"In the absence of any imminent changes in the former we therefore concentrate on other areas where we can have an impact in the short to medium term".

"There's people who come for the day who aren't really Manchester United fans, because of the history of the club they want to see a Manchester United match".

United's lack of atmosphere at their home stadium has even been acknowledged by the club's hierarchy as they attempted to install a "singing" section.
