'Man Utd Need To Change Their Manager Now'

Following Manchester United's 2-2 draw with Southampton in the Premier League at the weekend, it has been claimed that it is now clearer than ever that Jose Mourinho should be fired.

Messi Responds To Pique's Goal Claim

After a poor performance against Crystal Palace last weekend, the Red Devils had to come from behind to salvage a draw against the Saints on Saturday evening.

Adam Crafton, a Daily Mail journalist, believes Mourinho needs to go following a showing he feels was one of the club's poorest since Sir Alex Ferguson.

"It's the week that confirms that Manchester United needs to change their manager," he told the Sunday Supplement, according to Sky Sports.

"The theory was Mourinho's pragmatism maybe gets them over the line over the course of the season.

"It's now becoming clear if you can't beat Crystal Palace at home, Southampton away, it's as generous as fixtures you can get – Young Boys at home.

"Watching Manchester United now is an ordeal. You're watching Mourinho on the touchline more for him than the players.

"The players aren't offering anything generally. They have to make a change now really. I don't think the fans are enjoying watching their team.

"Yesterday (Sunday), the first 20 minutes was as bad as anything I've seen from Manchester United since Sir Alex Ferguson retired.

"It's a very dispiriting place at the moment. They were so far adrift of Manchester City a few weeks ago.

"Before that, they seemed to have had a bit of a renaissance, but since then it is back to where it was before."

'Ballon D'Or Loses Value Without Messi There'

United are now eight points off the top four in the Premier League, having won just six of their 14 league matches played so far.
