Manchester United fans call for Jose Mourinho’s job after Derby defeat

Manchester United Football Club are in a mess. Jose Mourinho’s men sit way off the pace in the Premier League table and last night, things went from bad to worse in the Carabao Cup.

Championship side Derby County, managed by a Frank Lampard who is ten games into his career as a boss, tactically outclassed the self-proclaimed Special One. That’s a major issue.

What’s the plan? What are United trying to achieve? Jurgen Klopp, Pep Guardiola, Maurizio Sarri, even Mauricio Pochettino all have a style. Right now, I’ve no idea what the Red Devils are looking to accomplish tactics-wise.

The fans’ confidence in Mourinho already began to falter. After this latest debacle, the furore is only going to increase. Twitter was awash with Red Devils supporters calling for the manager’s head. At this point, I’m struggling to disagree.

Can you honestly see any positives? Is there any evidence to suggest things are going to get better? One thing is for certain, it was pretty obvious when David Moyes’ time was up, the same thing occurred with Louis van Gaal. We’re rapidly approaching that point with Jose Mourinho. It feels eerily similar. The writing is on the wall.
