Manchester United manager José Mourinho is finding things more complicated for him at Old Trafford as he’s ‘fighting’ with his senior players, that’s according to a source close to the Carrington training ground.
The Portuguese manager is obviously in a row with Paul Pogba over captaincy issue, and the source now claims that the Red Devils senior players are angry with the way Mourinho is running the affairs of the club.
The source told ESPN FC that the players are unhappy with his comments of his team “being in trouble” when Eric Bailly and Phil were about to take their spot-kick in their defeat to Derby County on Tuesday.
ESPN revealed that the comment hasn’t gone down well with the aforementioned players, who are angry with the manager’s lack of trust in their ability.
Another source close to Mino Raiola — Pogba’s agent, also told the media outlet that the Portuguese manager has lost his managerial prowess and he’s equally lost his authority in the dressing room.
He believes the former Chelsea manager isn’t getting the best from his players because he failed to ‘cajole, help, understand and advise’ them during their psychological problems.
Mourinho’s time at Old Trafford might be up in no time, should he fail to grind-out results as soon as possible by putting an end to the crises in the team.
The Red Devils are reportedly linked with a move to sign former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane, who helped the Los Blancos to three consecutive Champions League glory.
