Champions League: Mourinho’s Man United misfire in Valencia stalemate

Zinedine Zidane

United, already eliminated from the Carabao Cup by Championship outfit Derby last Tuesday before losing 3-1 at West Ham on Saturday, can at least point to an unbeaten record in Group H following this stalemate.

Mourinho has had a public bust-up with Pogba with the two at loggerheads at Old Trafford.

The Argentinean was able to play a major role in the famous Hammers win at the weekend and his comments on the state of Manchester United were stunning in their bluntness.

Another game, another headache for Jose who is experiencing another low point in his managerial career with his Manchester United side having tasted no victory in their last three matches.

It was a damning assessment of the current state of affairs at Old Trafford and only serves to heighten the speculation at the club with Jose Mourinho clearly walking on thin ice during his third season with the club.

Valencia attempted to replicate their countrymen's heroics at Old Trafford, where the home faithful began chants of "attack, attack, attack" early in the second half and would then cheer the substitution of Alexis Sanchez.

"But the effort was something that I demand and when you don't have special qualities you cannot ask for special things but commitment, effort, you can demand and the players they answered well".

Who should replace Mourinho as United manager?

Failure to win will only serve to increase the pressure on Mourinho's position, with the United boss odds-on favourite to be the next Premier League manager to be sacked.

That said, there we some positives on the pitch in a dismal game, with both Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford showing that they now deserve to be trusted by Mourinho.

"It took one of the younger players to come out and do that [play with no fear]". And in front of him down the left flank, Rashford also justified his selection simply because he showed pace and ambition when going forward.

"I don't need to know what he said", Mourinho said of Scholes.
