5 reasons why Manchester United should sack Jose Mourinho
Jose Mourinho is not the coach he was once before. He is stuck in a black-hole and seems reluctant to come out of it. He looks broken and depressed and is becoming more anxious under Pep Guardiola's shadow.
United's performances have been so muffled, albeit winning, that mirrors the boss' dullness.
The situation at the Old Trafford is like a volcano which can go off at any time. An FA Cup and Champions League exit will United's title hopes this season, it is, therefore, imperative that Manchester United sack Jose Mourinho before things go south.
Do you think it as a foolhardy decision to sack him? Do you think it is unfair to sack a manager who has won 20 of his 28 games this season so far?
Here are a few compelling reasons.
#1 Old Trafford is the most boring venue in the Premier League
A football equipment website Forza, in October 2017, came up with a framework to figure out the most entertaining venues by combining the key facets of the game like the number of goals, shots, corners and red cards registered between 2013 and 2017. Based on the facts, they concluded, Old Trafford is the most boring venue in the Premier League.
Can you believe this? Yes, one of the world's richest clubs is the most boring side in the Premier League. Though David Moyes and Louis Van Gaal must take a fair share of the blame, Mourinho hasn't improved the entertaining factor at Old Trafford in the last one and half years.
There were so many dull draws at Old Trafford last season. Even this season, except for a few games, United have not been an exciting team to watch.
Mourinho's philosophy of parking the bus after scoring a goal is not going down well with the Old Trafford fans. To put things in context, Forza chose City's Etihad Stadium as the most entertaining venue in the last four years.
Louis Van Gaal, recently, slammed Mourinho for his boring style of football and many of the football experts and fans are not happy with United's style of play.
The fans, at the least, deserve to enjoy interesting football games. Fans are not paying skyrocketing ticket prices to see a boring game. If Jose cannot provide fun, he must leave the club.
