#3 Mourinho's days at United may be numbered

Mourinho is world-renowned as one of the best managers to grace the beautiful game, but in recent times at Manchester United things haven't been going his way. Whether it's not getting the players that he wants or falling out with his own players, it seems to be going from bad to worse at United for the Portuguese manager.

He's spent over 400 million pounds since he took over at Old Trafford, but his squad seems to be in pieces. Lukaku hasn't been scoring as much as he used to, and Pogba looks like half of the player that they signed from Italian giants Juventus.

Worse still, the former Chelsea manager's tactics look out of date, and they go completely against the United way.

His United side have been massively out of sorts this season. After the Liverpool defeat, they now languish in sixth place, 11 points off the top 4. They are also closer to bottom club Fulham (17 points) than they are to Liverpool at the top of the table (19 points).

If he can't change the fortunes at United, and continues to go about his business the way he is right now, Mourinho's days could be numbered.
