With the intent of making sure that the entire roster is game-ready all the time, the new manager of Manchester United Jose Mourinho implemented a rule that keeps his players from Pokemon Go 48 hours before a match.
The new game from Nintendo has taken the world by storm, including the multi-millionaire players of the said soccer club. According to a report from Daily Star, the new boss has laid down a firm prohibition on the sensational mobile game so that his boys can focus solely on the tactics that they have set for the coming match. The report further explained that Mourinho is still trying to adjust with the organization and so far, he continues to be extra careful.
A proven winner, Mourinho has helped other soccer clubs like Porto, Real Madrid, Inter Milan, and Chelsea win a number of trophies to add to their respective collection of silverware. United hopes that the stern Portuguese that they signed for a £30million, a three-year deal can help them dominate Europe once again.
All is not lost for the Pokemon Go careers of his players as according to a source per the Daily Star, their new boss “loves having a great relationship with his players and staff, and thinks it’s great for them to chill and relax away from training and games.”
As Pokemon Go players around the world continue their quest to collect all available Pokemon, the men of the Old Trafford will have to take a step back whenever there is an upcoming match.
