Manchester United fans furious with Jose Mourinho after Derby County defeat

by Leo Nieboer

Manchester United supporters did not hide their anger towards Jose Mourinho following their side’s humiliating League Cup exit at the hands of Derby County at Old Trafford.

The home side begun well, taking the lead through Juan Mata before spurning a number of glorious chances to kill the game.

Chaos quickly ensued: Derby equalised – almost exactly at the same time as Wolves did on Saturday – and dominated the second half, going ahead late on and eventually winning 8-7 on penalties after Marouane Fellaini‘s late equaliser.

Supporters were quick to voice their frustration at what was another awful performance from Mourinho’s team.

It was rightly pointed out by many during the game that Frank Lampard, ten games into his managerial career, was watching his team play with speed, precision and desire, while Mourinho, a managerial great in his third season at the club, could not produce anything which had even a semblance of method, of balance, of structure.

For a man who has had three summers to work with these players, on top of almost half a billion to work with, it was genuinely baffling to see his United team play this way.

Supporters should be angry. This team is playing miles below its potential.
