Jose Mourinho has won the lot during his distinguished career in the dugout, but one aspect of his management that has regularly been criticised is in regards to his record with young players.
Despite managing clubs with outstanding youth facilities and talented players, Mourinho has rarely given youngsters more than a few games in the first-team to prove their worth. Instead, he has relied upon seasoned veterans to win him games and trophies.

However, upon his arrival at Old Trafford in the summer, there was some concern amongst United’s fanbase that one of the club’s proudest traditions of honing the skills of homegrown players, would be severely compromised.
But is the criticism that Mourinho neglects academy products fair?
Here are all the players who have been given their chance in senior football by the United boss.
