Mourinho is surely a well-respected manager in the world considering the titles he’s won so far in his illustrious career, however, things are presently not turning out well for the Portuguese manager at Old Trafford.
Having failed to win any silverware with the Red Devils throughout last season, the respect he commands from the club’s supporters began to diminish.
His team’s woeful performances and results so far this season hasn’t helped but worsen the issue.
Apart from fans, United players are not totally in support of the gaffer’s tactical approach and they are reportedly no longer willing to put maximum concentration into games.
According to Paul Pogba in his comment after their 1-1 draw against Wolves last weekend, the team ought to attack, instead, they were made to defend throughout the encounter.
“When we are at home we should attack, attack, attack. That’s Old Trafford. We are here to attack. I think teams are scared when they see Man United attacking and attacking. That was our mistake today.” Pogba question Mourinho’s tactics.
The board members are equally not on good terms with the gaffer and their relationships are showing nothing to encourage the fans that better days are still coming.
Is this the end of the road for Mourinho at Old Trafford?
To make matters worse for the Portuguese, results are not coming the manager’s way. He saw his team succumb to 8-7 (penalty kick) defeat to Derby County last night to crashed out of the competition.
It seems this is the best time for Mourinho to call it to quit at Old Trafford so as to avoid facing more humiliation as the season progresses.
The former Real Madrid boss is a quality manager, who won’t stay long before getting another job elsewhere.
