Man United Star Angry With Mourinho’s Tactics, Blames Manager For Woes

Published

on

According to reports, Armenian star player Henrikh Mkhitaryan is not pleased to have been dropped from the starting XI at Manchester United, and he is blaming Jose Mourinho’s tactics for his recent form.

Mkhitaryan has been dropped from seven of Man United’s last eight matchday squads.

Despite starting the season impressively as Mourinho’s first choice attacking midfielder, the former Dortmund playmaker is now struggling for form, and have seen Jesse Lingard playing in his no.10 position in recent games.

Mkhitaryan fumbled in big away matches against Liverpool and Antonio Conte’s Chelsea, and since his performance against the premier league champions on November 5th, he has made just one appearance – as a substitute in Man United’s 1-0 win over Brighton in November.

Manchester United were poor in Stamford Bridge, and Henrikh – who was expected to supply and create chances for Romelu Lukaku – was pocketed by Chelsea midfielders.

But according to new reports, the player believes he is not solely to blame for his form and feels his manager’s tactics had a negative effect on his performances.

Jose Mourinho is expected to sign Mesut Ozil at the end of this season to replace Mkhitaryan in his squad.

The Arsenal playmaker worked with the former Real Madrid boss back then at the Bernabeu, and he is understood to be interested in reuniting with Jose at Old Trafford next year.

The Reds boss Jurgen Klopp earlier establish that his side will not be active in the January window as he is happy with his squad and not ready to cause any distraction in his team.

He, however, hinted that a transfer decision could only be made if an emergency situation arises knowing that he needs a big squad to be able to maintain the lead until the end of the season.

It was expected that the emergency situation would be made known with the injury crisis that hit the team with Joe Gomez and Joel Matip out of the team due to injury but the German boss made it clear that he will not rush to the market.

But the latest report claims that the former Borussia Dortmund boss is now willing to add a ‘readily available’ player who can also play as a central defender.

It is also reported that the Merseyside team are open to a loan move as they might not necessarily secure a big addition.
