Manchester United to decide on Mourinho if he loses to Newcastle
Manchester United on the premier league table is currently in the 10th position, which has made them left behind the rest of their top rivals including Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham, and Arsenal.
On Tuesday night, they settled for a goalless draw with Valencia in the Champions League, days after they lost to West Ham 3 – 1, and got knocked out by Championship club Derby in the Carabao Cup.
In all this, United legend Paul Ince has said he believes Mourinho could be sacked if his team is defeated by Newcastle.
“If they lose on Saturday evening, particularly if it’s a bad loss, there will be a decision made on Jose Mourinho’s future very quickly,” Ince told Paddy Power.
“If they don’t get a result against Newcastle this weekend, Jose Mourinho is in real danger.
“He won’t walk, because that’s not in his character. I hate the thought of Jose being sacked.
“But, If you’re not picking up results and there’s this black cloud hanging around Old Trafford, your time as manager is running out.
He emphasized that the United are no better off than how they were before Mourinho.
“In the past, you’d say United aren’t the kind of club to just sack a manager.
“But it seems that is what they’re like now.”
Ince also claimed that some players are trying to get Mourinho sacked by not playing for him.
“It baffles me that Manchester United players are choosing when they want to put effort into playing for their club,” he added.
“Every player in the shirt should be putting in effort and showing desire, even if you don’t get the result.
“There’s no excuse for not putting in effort. These are professional footballers, on astronomical wages, playing for one of the biggest clubs ever.
“It doesn’t sit right with me that it looks like they can’t be bothered.” He said.
