Former Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert has warned Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho and Ed Woodward to get heads together and find out what’s best for the club.
It was reportedly suggested that Mourinho and the club executive vice-chairman were supposed to meet this week for discussions over poor performance this season.
The Portuguese boss has been under pressure the season but relented by the astonishing 3-2 victory over Newcastle United ahead of the international break.
However, current Sky Sports pundit Lambert believes both Mourinho and Ed Woodward need to sit together and resolve all problems in the club.
“It’ll be a good one! It would like to be there to watch it. I’d pay to watch it!” joked former Aston Villa boss Lambert, speaking to Sky Sports.
“If they are going to have words, this is the time to get their heads together.
“There’s something not right at that club, they should never be being dragged through the mire.”
Mourinho has been at the market in the summer looking for a new centre-back, with Harry Maguire, Jerome Boateng, Toby Alderweireld and Yerry Mina were all on the wish-list.
But Ed Woodward failed to sign one of those defenders and the war between the pair started from there.
“I can only go by the experiences I’ve had, but the dialogue you have to have with your hierarchy is important to you,” Lambert added.
“You have to work with people and hopefully sing off the same hymn sheets that you are doing what is best for the club.”
“You will have your disagreements. Everybody will have that but you also have to have a rapport with your bosses of ‘this is why I’m doing this or can we do that’.”
“You are not going to get everything you ask for, that’s a big thing. But if you can get more things right than wrong, you’re doing okay.”
