Brighton's Balogun expects more intense test at Liverpool

Brighton's Balogun expects more intense test at Liverpool

He said: "Other clubs and fans are having a field day at the minute, seeing what is happening at Man United".

"I can see now that fans are turning against Jose Mourinho, and I can understand why". While talking to Press Association Sport, Sharpe tagged Mourinho as the "Wrong man for the job".

Ince was not the only one piling in yesterday, with Gary Neville stepping into the war of words between Paul Scholes and Pogba's agent Raiola.

Despite obvious deficiencies in the squad, there remains a belief in various quarters of the club that United still boast an abundance of talented players and should at least be capable of making a credible challenge for the title.

But his time at United hasn't been great and he's shown a constant lack of the five key things Phelan raises in his tweet.

Mourinho was critical of United's transfer dealings in the transfer market this summer and exasperated, in particular, by the failure to sign another centre-half, but the club's power-brokers did not share the manager's enthusiasm for some targets.

But with just seven days to prepare for Tottenham's visit to Old Trafford, the 29-year-old - who will undergo further tests this week - has a battle to be fit.

Those who typically walk or jog to work are advised to consider taking a bus or Skytrain instead until the air quality improves. The station in Ellensburg reports "very unhealthy" levels of air pollution.

"The football's not entertaining and what makes it twice as bad is that their two biggest rivals, Man City and Liverpool, do play exciting football".

The performance has raised questions about the style of play the United manager has instilled in his team, says Tom Clarke in The Times.

"Criticism needs to be more balanced between coach and individual player performances", he added. When Pogba left United for Juventus, Alex Ferguson blamed Raiola, writing in his second autobiography that "there are one or two football agents I simply do not like, and Mino Raiola is one of them".

Raiola then followed that up by posting: "Paul Scholes should become sports director and advise Woodward to sell Pogba". When asked about Pogba, Ferguson confirmed that United offered him a good contract, but that Raiola intervened.

"Mourinho can not argue he has not been backed in the market", says Jamie Jackson in The Guardian.

I look at Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool and while he has not won the trophies Mourinho has collected over the course or his career, he has a wonderful way of getting players on side and presenting his club in a good light.
