Manchester United staff ‘fear Jose Mourinho on brink of sack’

Manchester United’s staff reportedly fear that manager Jose Mourinho could be on his way out of the club by the end of next week.

The Red Devils have made their worst ever start to a Premier League campaign and have already exited the EFL Cup at the first hurdle, being knocked out on home soil by Championship side Derby County.

Three poor results in a week, culminating in a 3-1 defeat at West Ham United on Saturday afternoon, has seen the pressure grow on Mourinho.

According to the Daily Mail, talk among staff behind the scenes at Old Trafford is that the former Chelsea boss is on the brink of being sacked.

Mourinho has also had to contend with a running dispute with Paul Pogba, which was played out in public earlier this week, while other certain first-team players also feel that they have been singled out.

United have another busy week ahead, as they take on Valencia in the Champions League and Newcastle United in the Premier League.
