The Red Devil has turned out to be a weak team with inept defense and without any flair of attack. The loss to Valencia in Champions League will be the final straw as Liverpool waits to hammer their rival on Saturday yet again. The own goal by Phil Jones and the glaring miss by Paul Pogba in Spain have revealed the problems that Mourinho is facing.
Manchester United has been lucky enough that they progressed on to the Champion’s League. This was a win away against Juventus against the odds that sent them through the game. However, in the last sixteen ties against the remaining teams would have filled the fans with fear.
Mourinho had his chance at Ed Woodward and Old Trafford will have to take an action now. The four places at the top are the realistic target for FA Cup and Premier League run to get a silverware. However, that is not going to happen under Special One.
Woodward will have to understand he has the ideal solution is sitting beside Mourinho at the dugout, Michael Carrick. The midfielder who has retired only recently is the perfect one to replace Mourinho until the end of the season.
“Zinedine Zidane and Mauricio Pochettino can be approached for a summer appointment“. Carrick is going to bring some peace to the proceedings at United and he can be hit permanently. He is aware of the fact that the
“present group of players“ is going to ask for respect and there is going to be some controversy for the rest of the campaign.
The fallout with Alexis Sanchez and Paul Pogba is going to become a faded memory. Moreover, the approach of Carrick is surely going to be pretty attacking than that of Mourinho.
