Manchester United’s disappointing start of the season has gone from bad to worse following the Champions League failure against Juventus in midweek. Although they are on the right way to advance to the knockout stage of the most prominent club competition in Europe, the results in the national championship are far from convincing.
With a record of four wins, two draws, and three defeats, and a -1 goal difference, the Red Devils trail city rivals Manchester City by nine points.
The Portuguese manager is faced with another trophyless season, considering his side currently reside in the 10th place, with minimal chances of closing the gap on the leaders.
Additionally, the 55-year-old expert already has some arguments with the current leadership. The problems between him and the management started during the summer transfer session when the club failed to secure any notable signing although Jose Mourinho demanded from the club to secure the services of a reliable defender.
Mourinho’s public dispute with Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial certainly works against him. Although the ex-Monaco forward recently denied he has personal issues with the former Real Madrid boss, it seems Mourinho has immense problems in his dressing room.
In the meantime, the media all across England have reported over the past few weeks that Zinedine Zidane aims to replace the experienced technician on the bench, stating the French has already started taking English lessons.
With the Premier League clash with Everton just around the corner, the former Inter Milan chief of staff has to achieve a positive outcome if looking to prolong his adventure at Old Trafford.
After the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson, the most successful English club has failed to win the Premier League title for five consecutive years. Despite the fact, Mourinho has managed to wrap up United’s first Europa League trophy, his Premier League struggle could lead to a farewell after 2 and a half years of charge. The board and the fans are desperate to see their beloved club returning to its glory days. Therefore, the poor results and frustrating displays have put Jose Mourinho’s job in jeopardy.
Given the fact the British fans have a “zero tolerance” attitude for the managers in trouble; the weekend’s showdown against the Toffies could be decisive for Mourinho’s faith at Manchester United.
