Mourinho, according to a report in the Daily Star, is prohibiting his players from the playing game during the 48 hours before a match. Mourinho told Man United’s first-team players of the new rule ahead of their pre-season tour of China, which was scheduled to kick off Monday against rival Manchester City.  

“Jose loves having a great relationship with his players and staff, and thinks it’s great for them to chill and relax away from training and games,” a source told the Daily Star. 

"He’s still finding his way around Old Trafford and treading carefully. The only thing he has picked up on which he’s told the lads of is his concern about Pokémon".
