Jose Mourinho Really Hates Luke Shaw

I don't know what Luke Shaw did to Jose Mourinho to make the Special One so angry at him, but it must have been really bad.

Only three games into the 2017 MLS regular season, Real Salt Lake have decided to fire manager Jeff Cassar. RSL have gone winless with one draw and two losses, and they've only managed to score one goal.

Cassar had been associated with the organization since 2007, serving as an assistant under Jason Kreis, including during Real Salt Lake's 2009 MLS Cup win. The team also reached the 2011 CONCACAF Champions League final.
