Jose Mourinho could leave Manchester United due to differences with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.
According to Duncan Castles, the Portuguese’s chief lickspittle, the United manager has become ‘increasingly frustrated’ in his role.
It is believed that there are frictions between Mourinho and Woodward, whose ‘handling of the club’ has been questioned.
‘The Portuguese coach has complained of what he perceives as unnecessarily bureaucratic and inefficient organisation at Old Trafford and United ‘s Carrington training base,’ Castles writes.
‘A hesitancy over implementing recruitment decisions and an unwillingness to match the funding deployed by key domestic and Champions League rivals rank among other points of conflict.’
So that’s Mourinho unhappy with United refusing to ‘match the funding’ of Europe’s elite? Only Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City spent more on transfers this summer.
Castles also cites a source – probably himself – who adds that reports that Mourinho has been offered a new contract are “totally untrue, zero contacts for that”.
And this following paragraph translates to absolutely nothing in our eyes:
‘Mourinho’s frustrations with United are multiple and focus on a series of matters he considers crucial to maximising his team’s chances of recovering the English Premier League title for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.’
Isn’t it funny that this has all come out after Mourinho has faced intense criticism for showing absolutely no ambition in a game against Liverpool? Read 16 Conclusions from that, by the way.
