The Arrival of Jose Mourinho does it mean harm to the carrier of the youngster?
Adnan Januzaj feels “humiliated” by Jose Mourinho for shoving him towards the Old Trafford exit.

Playing with an upright style, always looking at the options open to him, he was threatening to become a key figure for former Under-18s manager Paul McGuinness after opening his goal account against Crewe Alexandra.
However, a serious injury abruptly ended his 2011/12 season and meant he was unable to participate in the latter stages of the FA Youth Cup. At least he was given a glimpse of the future when
