Jamie Redknapp: Jose Mourinho has run out of excuses at Manchester United

by Tanveer Arayan


Jamie Redknapp claims Jose Mourinho has run out of excuses at Manchester United and must improve performances.

The Portuguese boss has endured a mixed start to life at Old Trafford so far and the club are currently sixth in the Premier League table, 11 points behind leaders Chelsea.

Following a brilliant victory over Feyenoord in the Europa League, hopes were the squad could carry the momentum into the West Ham clash, but Man United struggled to walk away with three points after being held to a 1-1 draw on Sunday.

Speaking about Mourinho, Redknapp has criticised the boss in his Daily Mail column.

“Everyone will be talking about Jose Mourinho kicking a bottle but it must not mask Manchester United’s poor start to the season,” he said.

“We normally see this kind of behaviour from Mourinho after three years at a club — not six months. It is clearly having a negative effect.

“This is United’s worst start to a campaign since 1990-1991 and they have not won at home in the league since September despite splashing out £160million on players.

“Mourinho has run out of excuses and his antics reflect badly on the club. When you are the manager of Manchester United you have to hold yourself better than this.”

After draws against Stoke City, Burnley, Arsenal and West Ham, the pressure will continue to mount on Mourinho’s men and he’ll be hoping to guide the side back to winning ways.

Mourinho has been sent off two times at Old Trafford this season, and while he was simply just showing passion, Redknapp believes it represents his downfall.

However, once he gets results back on the right track his antics will be forgotten and fans will be happy with his tactics at the club.
