Manchester United transfer news: Barcelona to sign Real Madrid target for €120 million and more - August 31, 2018
Hello and welcome to the Manchester United transfer news of the day! Today is the last day of the window across many countries in Europe and it wouldn’t be surprising if things become quieter than ever after today.
However, no one has ever seen tomorrow and it is with this ideology that we shall stick to today exclusively. Manchester United’s window might have closed earlier this month but the rumour mill hasn’t disappointed us since it always keeps on generating the buzz around the Old Trafford outfit.
And so without further ado, we shall begin with that is in the mix for the Red Devils!
#5 Mourinho should be sacked
Or at least that is what former Manchester United player Paul Parker thinks right now. After two consecutive defeats, Manchester United now find themselves in a position where they not only have just three points from three games but a rather unharmonious squad that plays a terrible brand of football.
And it is for this precise reason as to why Paul Parker wants him out of the Old Trafford. According to him, the brand of football that the Red Devils have played under him doesn’t go parallel with the ethos of United.
He believes that the former Real Madrid manager’s coaching methods and squeezed out the creativity of the players, which in turn has hampered the beauty of the team and its playing style.
“There has been so much poor football,” Paul Parker said.
“Performances have been poor and too many people are out there saying he is a winner and it is just about winning.
“Manchester United are not just about winning. They’re about a style, the manner they win in. It is about a swagger.
“They are not doing that anymore. That has been taken away from them, that has been virtually coached out of them.”
Parker further added that the Red Devils lack self-expression and that it won’t change with the Portuguese at the helm because the way he manages the player makes it impossible for the team to do anything beautiful.
“There is no self-expression anymore, they do not improvise. You are paying players millions and millions and still trying to control them.
“That does not make sense for a club like Manchester United. At the end of the day, Manchester United have to change.
“Their style of play is not going to change while Jose Mourinho is in charge.
“It is the way in which he manages which is pulling the players down.”
While Parker might not have directly implied that the former Inter manager should be sacked, his words make it apparent that United can only improve if the former Porto boss leaves the Old Trafford.
