It's fair to say that the Portuguese has exhausted all manners of dealing with Shaw though, giving him both the cold shoulder and a pat on the back to try and coax his ability out of him.
It is all a far cry from Mourinho's glowing endorsement of his squad at the start of the season, when he described the current United team - which delivered Europa League and EFL Cup silverware last term - as his favourite ever prior to August's 4-0 rout of West Ham.
Young's form for United has earned him a call-up for England's upcoming friendlies against the Netherlands and Italy and he appears set to be part of the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup squad.
"There is just a really odd relationship going on there and I don't understand what he's doing because he's just destroying the player at the moment".
"In the Premier League when you are in the first four this is not ideal but is good to play for the Champions League next season".

In today's transfer round-up, second-place Manchester United are preparing for a bit of a squad overhaul, with an England worldwide making most of the back pages.
But his latest attack after he had hauled off Shaw at half-time for not following tactical instructions, is likely to prove the last straw for player and manager. There's a World Cup at the end of it [season].
"The interesting personality in there is Michael Carrick who has been there 12 years, 13 years, and is about to go onto Jose Mourinho's coaching team".
"I've got to show the manager I should get a place in the squad".
Ashley Young has refused to discuss reports which have questioned the future of his teammate, but the versatile wideman feels that Shaw can still become one of world's best during his period in the North-West.
"As a player your main priority is to perform on the football pitch - that's the ultimate and all you should care about". I've played in numerous positions apart from centre-back and goalkeeper I think.
"I think he has to change his football brain", he said.
