Former England defender Jamie Carragher has revealed that Jose Mourinho has lost the Manchester United dressing room.
The Portuguese boss’ future has become seriously doubtful after facing the third Premier League defeats in the weekend.
The Red Devils have lost 3-1 in the hands of West Ham United on Saturday afternoon at London Stadium.
The former Chelsea boss side have also been crashed out of Carabao Cup on the first game against Derby County.
Furthermore, the 55-year-old has now gone in serious bust-ups with several United players mainly including Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez.
Therefore, Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has stressed that the former Real Madrid boss’ end at Old Trafford is now closer than before.
“I have no doubt from his comments in the press conference when he said ‘some players are trying and some are trying harder than others’ that he’s lost the dressing room,” he said on Monday Night Football.
“That’s not rocket science and I don’t even think that’s a controversial thing to say.”
“The problem with that is that it’s now the third time it’s happened.”
“It started at Real Madrid with [Iker] Casillas and [Sergio] Ramos then it happened at Chelsea with [Eden] Hazard and all the players there and now there’s talk of a group led by Pogba. So there’s no doubt there’s massive problems there.”
Mourinho is also said to have fallen out with Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Eric Bailly, and Carragher has advised United to stick with the players rather than the manager.
“Mourinho is not a builder of two or three teams,” Carragher added.
“Every club he’s at he builds one team and it’s very successful and then he moves on because his style of management is very confrontational.”
“He’s had success but after three years everyone is burnt out; himself, the club, the players.”
“If you’re the Manchester United owner or CEO, you’ve got to look at that and think: Pogba, Martial, Sanchez, Eric Bailly; are you going to get rid of all them and keep a manager who never normally lasts more than three years at a club or are you going to change the manager?”
“I didn’t think he’d be manager next season, but it may be quicker than that. With two international breaks coming, I think he may have a huge problem if he doesn’t turn it around very quickly.”
