Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has refused to take full responsibility for his side’s poor form as he moves closer to the exit door at Old Trafford.
Mourinho, who spoke at his pre-match press conference on Friday ahead of his pre-match press conference, said sometimes things are not in the manager’s hands only.
The former Chelsea, Real Madrid and FC Porto further revealed that his team can do better and that his side would do better starting from the weekend’s Premier League clash against struggling Newcastle United.
Manchester United go into the game on the back of their disappointing 3-1 loss at the Olympic Stadium against their hosts, West Ham United.
Felipe Anderson, Victor Lindelof (own goal) and Marko Arnautovic were on target for the hosts while England international forward Marcus Rashford got Manchester United’s goal.
The result left the Red Devils nine points adrift of league leaders Manchester City and in 10th position with ten points only from the first seven games of the season.
The West Ham game was preceded by the shock Carabao Cup third round exit to Championship outfit Derby County (beaten 8-7 on penalties after regulation time ended 2-2).
Jose Mourinho and his players are now on a four-match winless run both at home and in all competitions following the goalless draw at home to Spanish side Valencia in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
