Jose Mourinho was criticized heavily for his team's performance against Sevilla.

Manchester United despite sitting second in the Premier League does not appear to be happy with the brand of football being played at Old Trafford. Jose Mourinho took over an absolutely distorted team from Louis Van Gaal in 2016.

In his first season in charge, he went on to lift the Europe League, League Cup and Community Shield with the club. The winning mentality which left the Theater of Dreams along with Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013 appeared to be crawling back.

However, the 2017/18 is proving difficult for Jose's men. Much of the concern is regarding the "boring" and pragmatic brand of football being played at the club. After the gutless defeat to Sevilla at home, many fans demanded Jose be sacked so that they can get the Old Trafford buzzing again.

The wrath of some United fans...

On that note, here is a list of the managers who could give the club what it is missing under the Portuguese boss this season.

#3 Mauricio Pochettino

The Spurs boss is among the best managers in England at the moment.

The Premier League's current crop of managers is illustrious. The likes of Pep Guardiola, Jose Mourinho, Arsene Wenger and Jurgen Klopp have won almost everything as far as club football is concerned. In comparison to these elite managers, Mauricio Pochettino comes across as an upstart who has gathered much attention in the past few years.


The Argentine took over from Tim Sherwood in 2014 and has delivered beyond what was thought possible at the White Hart Lane club.

Under his management, Spurs have been a delight to watch with their free-flowing style of game. His high pressing and attacking philosophy accompanied by his 4-2-3-1 formation makes it difficult to breach the team's defence.

His eye for young talent is probably the best in Europe at the moment. He has transformed players like Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Eric Dier to name a few and into top-class talents. The 46-year-old has already been linked to the Real Madrid job.

In him, Old Trafford would get a manager with a lot of Premier League experience. The success he could bring to the Red Devils would be simply ineffable given their financial prowess over the Londoners.
