Man Utd could sack Mourinho
Manchester United chiefs are still pondering whether to sack Jose Mourinho, journalist Duncan Castles has claimed.
He told the Transfer Window Podcast: “Mourinho is still fighting for his survival at the club.
“Every match is being monitored for a mistake, for a bad result. You saw what happened after Juventus (1-0 home defeat in the Champions League).
“You might have read articles talking about Marcus Rashford, how he was playing so well for England – which seems to ignore the fact he missed a sitter against Croatia not that long ago – and so badly for Manchester United and it was down to the dullard of a manager who was making decisions about him at Manchester United which I think shows you the depth of antipathy to Mourinho in sections of the press at present because you can dislike Mourinho, you can criticise him in many ways, but if you are able to read a dictionary you would never describe the man as a dullard.
“But the key point is he’s under pressure, he’s fighting for his life. He is pushing Ed Woodward, the board, the Glazers to get reinforcements as soon as possible.”
Ake transfer doubts
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has two doubts about signing Nathan Ake from Bournemouth.
That’s according to the Manchester Evening News.
It is said that United feel the player can be reckless at times due to his desire to play in a holding midfield role.
And Chelsea have also prompted those emotions.
United reportedly feel that the Blues may make a move for Ake after insisting on a buy-back clause when they sold him to Bournemouth in January.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has claimed he loved his time at United and will be attached to the club forever.
He told Four Four Two: “I’m super proud and super happy that I went to United – it was the right club.
“We won, and I did what I did before I got injured.
“I had an excellent time – great memories. I’m attached to United forever.
“The supporters are amazing: wherever I went, I saw red shirts, which was fantastic. It’s a very important moment in my career.”
