Manchester United fell to another disappointing defeat in the Premier League, only this time it was in front of their home supporters at Old Trafford to one of their top 4 rivals Tottenham Hotspur. Although, there was no lack of effort and enthusiasm from the United players, yet Jose Mourinho’s side were defeated with a commanding 3-0 scoreline which has left their top 4 hopes in tatters.

The Risk Of Retaining Mourinho Is Not Worth The Reward

It is quite likely that the Red Devils would not be in the UEFA Champions League next season if Mourinho is still in charge of the club for the remainder of this campaign. The Portuguese boss is slowly losing the plot, and his recent antics in front of the media has not helped his cause. 

Mourinho Is His Own Worst Enemy

The Special One has tried to establish a ‘Us against the world’ mentality at Old Trafford, praising the fans for sticking by the team while also being satisfied with the performance of some of his players even after a humiliating 3-0 defeat at home. He has said a lot of things against the media in the recent past and has demanded more respect from his critics which is why there have been so many negative reports about the Portuguese boss’ management style over the last few months.

The fact that Mourinho has a big ego was once again evidenced in his most recent press conference. He said, “Just to finish, do you know what was the result? 3-0.

“What this means? [Holds three fingers up] 3-0 – but also means three Premier Leagues and I won more Premier Leagues alone than the other 19 managers together.”

There is no doubt that the United manager has not represented the club to the best of his abilities, often making things personal in front of the media. The negative scrutiny by the press would not help his cause as the Red Devils might be forced into taking action sooner rather than later.

Lessons From the Past

Man United should learn from Mourinho’s most recent spell at Chelsea. If they opt to retain his services for the time being, then even if the club decides to sack him later, it might be too late as they would miss out on a top 4 finish. Hence, parting ways with the Portuguese manager could be their only solution right now even if that means that they have to build from scratch once he is gone.

What’s The Ideal Solution?

However, the smart thing would be to line up an ideal replacement before letting him go as United would need a big name manager to lead them out of the hole that they have dug for themselves. Not to name names but we know of a three-time Champions League winner as a manager who is currently on a break.
