A group of disgruntled Manchester United supporters forked over money for a banner to fly over Burnley’s ground where United are playing in the Premier League.
The Portuguese manager was hellbent on recruiting new talent during the summer market including a center-half, with the club keeping tabs on several targets.
From Toby Alderweireld to Harry Maguire, among others.
However, the window slammed shut with United drafting in no players on deadline day.
Mourinho’s side have since endured a terrible start to the Premier League, losing two of their opening three league games including a 3-0 home loss to Spurs.
The banner is of course a play on the words Jose Mourinho uttered about Arsene Wenger in 2014 when he was in charge of Chelsea, only this time it was having a go at United’s executive vice-chairman and his failure to deliver top-quality signings in the transfer window.
Jose Mourinho was asked to give his take on the plane banner aimed at Ed Woodward during the 2-0 away win over Burnley – and of course he gave he most typical response.
“I am not looking to the sky unless I am asking the guy for help! I didn’t see planes but Ed Woodward won 2-0 this afternoon.”
While fans are not happy with Woodward, it seemed as though they were definitely still behind Mourinho, with the away end chanting his name in support.
Is Woodward really to blame?
