Tyrone Mings: ‘It was an accident – there’s no way I meant to stamp on Zlatan’

Bournemouth defender, who has learned to deal with setbacks, recalls the moment he lost his Mother Teresa tag and the social media consequences

Tyrone Mings is casting his mind back to that notorious flashpoint with Zlatan Ibrahimovic last season and considering whether he thinks the public perception of him has changed. “Probably, because I’d always been seen as sort of the Mother Teresa of football,” Mings says, breaking into laughter. “Everybody had such a charitable perception of me through things that I’d done to not really aim to give myself that tag. So as soon as that happened, I was given so many other labels, mainly from Man United fans via social media, but also via the pundits who were on Sky Sports at the time. I don’t think their comments helped.”

Mings, to be clear, is not moaning or seeking sympathy – that is not his style. An affable and gregarious character, the Bournemouth defender is full of positive energy and walks into the home dressing room for this interview in a way that betrays no sign of the news he is about to share concerning an injury blow. A meeting with a back specialist the day before saw him diagnosed with a potentially serious problem, ruling him out for a couple of months, just when he had hoped to kick on after signing a new four-year contract. “What can you do?” Mings says, shrugging his shoulders.

Southampton v Manchester United: match preview

Mauricio Pellegrino is up for the challenge of reining in Manchester United and may opt to start Virgil van Dijk in central defence, while striker Charlie Austin is available after a knock. Captain Steven Davis has called on Southampton fans to get behind them at a venue where United have won nine times in 12 visits. The trip to St. Mary’s is the first of six away games for United in the next month, and José Mourinho may seek to rotate his attacking options before the trip to CSKA Moscow, with Anthony Martial in form.

José Mourinho says ‘happiness’ is key to Anthony Martial’s upturn in form

• Manchester United manager praises forward’s ‘great improvement’
• Mourinho sidesteps questions over Romelu Lukaku chant controversy

José Mourinho believes Anthony Martial’s impressive start to the season is because the Manchester United forward is far happier than he was last term.

The 21-year-old has scored four times in seven appearances, half of his total of eight last season. Martial has managed the tally despite starting only three times.
