Manchester United risk missing out on top four if they stick with Joe Mourinho, says former Red Devils star


Jose Mourinho MUST be sacked as Manchester United manager if the club’s disastrous start to the season continues this week, according to former winger Lee Sharpe.

Mourinho is under huge pressure at the Old Trafford helm following back-to-back shock defeats against Derby County in the EFL Cup and West Ham in the Premier League.

The Red Devils now face a home double header this week against Valencia in the Champions League on Tuesday and Newcastle United in the league at the weekend.

Sharpe says a change, if needed, must be made sooner rather than later to keep their top-four hopes alive.

And he believes Mourinho should go if United fail to get good results in their next two games at Old Trafford.

“You can’t have performances and results like they are getting,” said the former Red Devil on Monday’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.

“If you’re out of that top four it’s so massive for these clubs these days that you just can’t afford to let it happen.

“If they don’t do anything this week and the results keep going the way they have been going, then a change has to be made sooner rather than later.

“Their performances, although they have won a couple, they haven’t been that great going forward and they haven’t looked that impressive.

“When you look at the likes of City, Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea, all their rivals are playing quick, high-tempo football and scoring goals, but United are just struggling over the line with results.

“With the Derby result in the week and this one now [against West Ham], plus the thing with Pogba going on, it just heaps pressure on the manager.

“It will be interesting to see what happens over the next couple of weeks.”
