Manchester United kept their first clean sheet of the season when they played a 2-0 victory over Burnley on Sunday, however, that hasn’t shown that the Reds Devils are strong at the back of the pitch.
Among the defenders who have been used by Mourinho far this season, only England’s left-back Luke Shaw has lived up to expectations while the rest are struggling to meet up with the pace.
In four matches played since the beginning of the season, Mourinho’s men have conceded seven goals, making them one of the clubs with most goals conceded before the international break.
In a way to solve the defensive problems when the Premier League resumes, talkSPORT pundit Adrian Durham has advised the Portuguese manager to get his former player John Terry, who is presently without a club.
The England legend was Mourinho’s trusted Allie during their time at Stamford Bridge, therefore, getting him won’t be difficult for the Portuguese manager.
According to Durham, Terry is an experienced defender who has proven his qualities over time.
The pundit suggested that the former England’s captain is strong and better than Marcos Rojo and he believes the player is the best solution to Mourinho’s defensive crisis.
Terry was released by Aston Villa last season and was unable to get a new club betrothed close of the transfer period.
Should he eventually join the Old Trafford outfits, His reunion with Mourinho will no doubt strengthen the club’s defensive unit ahead of the upcoming busy schedule
