Angel Gomes has revealed how Jose Mourinho’s brutal dressing up during their time at Manchester United left him on the verge of tears.

The England under-21 star, who rose through the ranks at Old Trafford, has started his 14 years at the club, which ended in the summer of 2020.

Gomes has excelled in the club’s academy, making his senior debut with Mourinho in May 2017, replacing Wayne Rooney in a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace at just 16 years of age.

Despite impressing and getting a call-up from the then Manchester United boss, Gomes was left reeling as Mourinho shredded his performance in front of the entire first team for a cup match.

Gomes, 21, told SPORTS bible: ‘I’ve actually never told this story before, but once, [Mourinho] took me to a first team cup game after playing with the Under 21s.

“We were sitting at the dinner table and he came over to talk to everyone. He then looks at me and says: “I’ve been cheated on you”.’

Gomes claimed the Portuguese boss had joked and laughed with the rest of the group shortly before, leading him to believe Mourinho was not serious.

However, when Mourinho was asked further about the comment, he brought up his previous performance with the reserves, leading Gomes to believe he had played ‘s***’.

Gomes continued: ‘He said ‘You did this and that, but you should have done this and that’… and this was for the whole squad too.

‘I had dated in my day, but not with the big boss. I just didn’t expect it. I was suprised. Finally he stopped screaming and went on with what he was doing.

‘I was pinned to my seat. Finally some guys came up to me and said, “Don’t worry, just ignore him, he’s trying to get a response from you. That’s how he is.”

Mourinho's grilling for the entire first team almost made Gomes cry

“I was only young, so in my head I thought, ‘F***, he hates me.’ I went back to my room and called my father. I almost had to cry.’

Now at Lille and maturing as a player and person, Gomes insists he now understands Mourinho’s motives and simply wanted the best for him.

The attacking midfielder claims Mourinho is ‘just very, very passionate’ and wanted to let the youngster know that he is not in for an ‘easy ride’.
