EPL: Zidane calls Mourinho over Manchester United job


The problems are mounting for Manchester United and Jose Mourinho.

"There are so many of them you could pick out along with Pogba".

A 3-1 loss at West Ham on Saturday means United have taken 10 points from their first seven games of the season, recording their joint worst start to a Premier League season, equalling the beginning of the ill-fated David Moyes era.

The France global has had the vice-captaincy taken off him and many observers are claiming Mourinho may be suffering from the "third-season syndrome" that has dogged his career. "Sanchez, Smalling, Lindelof, Martial are not performing", he said.

Speculation regarding a possible move for the World Cup-winning midfielder continues to build, with a breakdown in his working relationship with Jose Mourinho edging him ever closer to the exits.

You look at our team against West Ham, and we had a very strong team. I think individually and as a team we were bad.

"They have been asked to play in a certain way and they have to accept that and get on with it".

Docherty told The People: "I would just let Pogba go. There's less to lose for a player to clash with a manager so publicly". However, United defender Luke Shaw believed that the players should take the blamed and not the manager, Jose Mourinho.

Wise also believes the recent tension between Mourinho and Pogba is not helping and says the Portuguese needs to resolve the issue or the manager's future at Old Trafford will come under further scrutiny.

"But you can't always put it down to a manager". He's there to put a team out and put a team out that he thinks can win the game.

How humiliating. Pogba has apparently created a "rebel group" at United against Mourinho and there's a good chance Sanchez has now joined it.

West Ham now really seem to have momentum on their side, ahead of their match against Brighton at the weekend.
