Jose Mourinho told Manchester United’s underachieving players to “remain in the home” if they can’t handle the pressure to perform at Old Trafford.

Young Boys will be the people on Tuesday evening as the Red Devils seem to reach the Champions League last 16 with a game to spare — a feat they will achieve if they win and Valencia neglect to beat Juventus.

Progress would be a welcome shot in the arm after rsquo & Saturday ;s tepid goalless draw with fighting Crystal Palace, which left them 14 points and from nine home matches in all competitions using a mere three wins.

But, Mourinho knocked hints his players find it a lot easier to play away back and laughed off a proposal that playing at Old Trafford brought pressure before confronting the champions.

“t state stadium home — and when I say home, I don & rsquo; If pressure is felt by you, remain at home, I state home home and see TV,&rdquo.

“If you are feeling pressure to play matches where the people come to support… come on.

“I never felt pressure to play at home. ”
