A battle between Jose Mourinho and his board seems to have certainly impacted the manager already, and the negativity seems to be trickling down to the players as well.
Manchester United‘s recent loss to Brighton has raised eyebrows all over the world, and certain set of fans have already started demanding for change.
Disputes between the boss and his players, lack of activity in the transfer window, and poor display of football has put the club in an area of danger, and rock bottom seems to be approaching fast.
Former United right-back Gary Neville gave his thoughts on the issue by speaking about what knowledge he possesses of the situation.
Here is what the Red Devils’ legendary defender had to say: “I speak to people at the club and I think that there is a good spirit in the dressing room. Sunday is a poor performance.”
The ex-England international went on to add: “This idea… he’s not lost the players. I don’t think for one minute he’s lost the players so I think it would be wrong to suggest that about this game.”
Neville believes that the key for the United boss to turn things around is to stay away from all the mind games surrounding Old Trafford, and be focused on Monday’s crucial fixture against Spurs.
To emphasize on the same, Gary claimed: “I think he will leave the players because what he needs now is get them right for a week on Monday, a big game against Tottenham, and it is only the second game of the season.”
The Red Devils are in for a turbulent season, and if the result of the next game does not go the right way, things could take an even uglier turn.
