Manchester United balls: Mourinho takes the Express to Syria

by | 5th, April 2016

The Daily Express has news for Manchester United fans.

Man United News: Mourinho offer confirmed, £60m Real Madrid move, triple fitness boost

The paper adds:

EXPRESS SPORT brings you the latest from Old Trafford.

To anyone sane this looks lot like news that Jose Mourinho and Manchester United have “confirmed” a relationship. It is, after all, the “news from Old Trafford”. But this is the Express, where nothing is quite as it seems. The story begins:

Jose Mourinho has been offered the Syria job.

No, not to run the country and take on the jihadis and the lunatic dictator Assad. Mourinho has been offered the chance to manage the Syrian football team. And how is that classified as “Manchester United news” when neither Mourinho nor Syria are in Manchester?
