Mourinho to be sacked sooner than expected – reporter claims

Mourinho

Mourinho’s future is up for discussion yet again, after his side’s awful performance in their draw against Jorge Mendes Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The Red Devils have enjoyed mixed fortunes this season having recorded three wins, two defeats and one draw so far.

Last month, reports claimed that the Portuguese manager could be shown the exit door before the end of the month.

However, the Red Devils board members reportedly decide to continue working with the former Chelsea boss as he recorded a four straight win, including a 3-0 victory over Young Boys in the UEFA Champions League competition.

With Saturday’s result, United are eight points behind League leaders Liverpool and Josep Casanovas – who works for Spanish media outlet Sports – believes the end of Mourinho’s reign at Old Trafford is closer than ever.

The reporters claimed that the Portuguese manager deploys outdated tactics and his players are not happy with him.

Casanovas also claimed that United’s dressing room is not friendly as there are division among the players.

Mourinho is a manager who knows what he wants from his players but results aren’t coming his way and that might make him lose his job before the end of this year, just as predicted by bookmakers last month.

In other United news, Mourinho might give youngsters the chance to prove their qualities when they battle Derby County in Carabao fixture on Wednesday.

Former Arsenal right-back Lee Dixon has berated the hierarchy at the club following the admission that the Gunners won’t be able to make permanent signings in the current January transfer window.

The footballer turned pundit said that the Gunners’ stance on permanent signings is a disastrous statement to make to the Arsenal fans.

Gunners boss Unai Emery admitted earlier this month that the club won’t be able to sign players permanently this month.

The Spaniard said that Arsenal can only sign players on loan in the current January transfer window and that there are no funds to secure the permanent transfer of players.

Without any signings, Unai Emery and his players were able to claw their way back into the race for the top four on the Premier League table with a big win over London rivals Chelsea.

Arsenal defeated the Blues 2-0 courtesy two first half goals from Alexander Lacazette and team captain Laurent Koscielny.

It was the 10th goal scored by French international striker Lacazette in all competitions this term.

On Koscielny’s part, it was his first goal since his return from a long-term injury problem.

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.
