Jose Mourinho has been extended an invitation to 'discuss his concerns' about the atmosphere at Old Trafford by the Manchester United Supporters Trust.

The Red Devils boss has been at the centre of the storm surrounding a number of incidents at the Old Trafford, which have seen him criticise sections of the supporters at the ground for not backing his side appropriately.

The back and fro seems to have stemmed from Mourinho criticising the United fan base for not offering enough support to Romelu Lukaku, and the 54-year-old was further agitated when a section of the ground booed when Marcus Rashford was subbed in United's 1-0 win over Chelsea. 

His reply came first in the form of a finger to his lips following the victory over Tottenham on Saturday, and then again in his programme notes ahead of the win against Benfica, which his passive aggressive statement said that he hoped they, "Enjoy the game more than some of you did against Tottenham."

In response to Mourinho's comments, MUST issued a statement which read, via Daily Mail: "There are differing views amongst supporters on precisely how to interpret the manager's comments.

"However it's probably fair to say there is a universal desire within the stadium to see atmosphere improved just as there is at other Premier League clubs.

"There are a number of factors that have contributed to atmosphere decline over the decades, some of which could be addressed with better co-operation between clubs and supporters.

"MUST would certainly appreciate the opportunity to engage with the manager, as part of our existing dialogue with other club officials, on issues around atmosphere and would be more than happy to meet to discuss his concerns."

Manchester United are not back in action at Old Trafford until they face Newcastle in the Premier League on November 18.
