Premier League giants Manchester United sacked Jose Mourinho too soon according to former Marouane Fellaini.

According to the Belgian international midfielder, the club should have given Jose Mourinho more time to turn things around when he was sacked last season.

The former Manchester United star made this known in his latest interview as monitored by the Manchester Evening News (MEN).

Marouane Fellaini played under Mourinho at Manchester United before the Portuguese tactician was sacked by the club in December 2018.

Ex-Chelsea, Real Madrid and Inter Milan boss Mourinho was sacked by Manchester United shortly after the Liverpool game at Anfield at the end of last year.

According to Marouane Fellaini, Manchester United bosses should have been patient with Mourinho as well as the previous managers like David Moyes and Louis Van Gaal.

He went on to say that the Manchester United hierarchy has established a sacking culture at the club.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Mourinho in December last year and he’s presently on the hot seat after the underwhelming start to the new Premier League campaign.

The Red Devils have not won any of their last three games in the Premier League and that has left them in 12th position on the league table.
