Shaw slams 'horrendous' and 'awful' Manchester United

Share

Mourinho is facing a huge week after Saturday's shambolic 3-1 defeat at West Ham, which defender Luke Shaw described as "horrendous" and "awful", piled on the pressure ahead of the Champions League game against Valencia on Tuesday and the visit of Newcastle four days later. It's all of us, everybody has a role to play.

There have been many reports suggesting there is a divide in the dressing room following Mourinho's recent row with Pogba.

However, it didn't take long for it to slip, as it often does where Mourinho is concerned.

And Shaw thinks that simply shouldn't be happening. Etihad bosses are willing to draw up new terms believed to be worth £25,000 per week, the paper says, but want to keep the 18-year-old's feet firmly on the ground and are in no rush to sign off on the deal.

Valencia have lost each of their last four Champions League games, their worst ever streak in the competition. In fact, it isn't really a time for posts.

Incumbent manager Mourinho has been in the most prestigious job in football for just over two years. wHopefully it takes a player of Neville's calibre to remind certain figures calling for Mourinho's head that the fractures run deeper.

Mourinho blamed the officials for West Ham's first and third goals, saying the opener should have been flagged offside and the move that led to the Arnautovic goal included a foul on Rashford. According to The Sun, under-fire Mourinho is resigned to his fate and is convinced club officials have sounded out Zidane to replace him. When asked whether he wanted to stop and talk, the midfielder smiled, laughed and said: "You want me dead?"

"Games like this [at West Ham] we should be dominating, creating chances, showing people why we deserve to play for Manchester United". Sometimes what it looks is exactly the opposite.

Rio Ferdinand has called for a decision to be made at Manchester United to stop the "wars" within the club.

When imploring Mourinho to attack more after being held by Wolves, Pogba defended Sanchez's struggles to adapt from the more open football played at Barca and Arsenal.

"What I can do to improve things I do", he said.

"What I can do to improve things I do, and I will improve the things that depend on me and my work", Mourinho said.

There is no doubt, however, that Mourinho is in a hard position at United.

Mourinho refused to comment when asked whether or not he has spoken to United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward about his position too.
