Manchester United legend claims Jose Mourinho wanted to be sacked from club

Manchester United legend claims Jose Mourinho wanted to be sacked from club

After 6 wins out of 6 games under Solskjaer, everyone has started taking Manchester United seriously again.

The Sunday Supplement panel discuss whether Manchester United were right to part company with Jose Mourinho.

"We've continually said in our progress the most important thing for us is to have as a big a gap as we can between us and the bottom three".

"Not anymore. Not anymore".

Another player who could be set for the exit door is Marcos Rojo, according to the Telegraph, as United are ready to sell him in order to fund a defensive overhaul as they see him as the most dispensable of their current centre half options.

"And the balance has to be created in the relationship between the players and the manager". The manager is not there to keep the discipline at any cost. "The structure must be there to protect the manager and for the players to feel that everything is in place and they are not going to arrive in a situation where they feel more powerful than they used to be".

Tomic unleashes on Hewitt after Open loss
Tomic sent shockwaves around Melbourne Park on Monday night by suggesting Hewitt was selfish and divisive and needed to "go away". Hewitt's former coach Roger Rasheed also weighed in to throw his support behind the two-time slam victor .


The Red Devils were 1-0 winners at third-placed Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley last weekend thanks to Marcus Rashford's 44th-minute victor.

"This just shows you how much of a family Manchester United is". We are unsafe and we have what it takes to beat any team. "So I think to just creep under that radar suits us, because we know we have still got an very bad lot of work to do".

"The best advice I have received from him until now is that I have to play to my strengths".

"It's great to be playing with these exceptional players that I've been training with".

Recalling Solskjaer's message to the players on a recent warm-weather training trip to Dubai, Martial added: "He talked a lot different when we were in Dubai".

After the game, executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and predecessor David Gill congratulated the players in the dressing-room at Wembley, while Ferguson took his grandson on the team bus to meet them later.
