United have had their performance this season clogged by so many factors, most evidently poor managerial approach from club’s chief Jose Mourinho.
The Red Devils have only won 43 percent of their games so far, conceding more that the competition’s big five.
By this time last season, United, had a firm grip on the second spot on the Premier League log. However, that has not been the case this season. They are nine points adrift table toppers Manchester City and Liverpool, sitting at tenth on the log.
Mourinho is still under fire, and it is unlikely he can influence any positive change.
The ‘Special One’ who won the Europa title at Old Trafford during his first spell at the club, has yet to find his footing on United’s soil this season.
His brawls with some of his players namely: Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez, has put the 55-year-old in the media spotlight.
Paul Pogba was stripped of his skipper duties after speaking awfully of United’s recent performances in the Premier League and League Cup.
A Manchester United insider revealed Mourinho has lost the dressing room, pegging that to how he openly criticises his players, reports the Mirror.
Sports pundit Jamie Carragher says Mourinho has hit a wall in Old Trafford. The Sky Sports expert revealed that Mourinho regretted singling out player for harsh criticisms, in front of others when he was Chelsea’s manager.
I’m not speaking out of turn here. I had a conversation with Mourinho after he left Chelsea. He was manager at the Soccer Aid game, a charity game.
“It wasn’t just me and him so I’m not betraying confidence. There were four or five people there.
However, Carragher believes he has gone back to doing that in United. It remains to be seen how long Mou will be able to string his squad back together.
