Mourinho not at fault, Man United directors are - Babbel

Saha backs Mourinho chastises Pogba for inappropriate comments

With United midfielder Nemanja Matic, the only Serbian or Montenegrin global at the club, out of action due to a back injury, it was clear that Mourinho was scouting a potential transfer target.

While it is highly doubtful whether Ibrahimovic could make any kind of impact on the field were he to return this season, ESPN say that Jose Mourinho may covet his influence in the dressing room.

A number of off-the-field spats, including a falling out between Mourinho and Paul Pogba, have increased the sense of chaos at the club.

And according to a report from Mundo Deportivo, there's a very good reason why nothing likely will.

"For me, the problem is the directors in the office because they made a decision to take him".

"I've never played for the France team to be captain, already being here is a big thing for me" Pogba said.

The former midfielder, 37, took up a coaching role at the end of last season after a distinguished playing career at West Ham, Tottenham and United.

"I didn't come into it thinking "ah, this is straightforward, this is going to be easy" because that's not the case and I knew that coming in that it's not easy", Carrick added.

While several fans, players, and even football pundits have opined that the Old Trafford club must part ways with the underperforming manager, a few notable figures, such as club legend Wayne Rooney and ex-boss David Moyes, have spoken in support of Mourinho. Do you stay at the top? But a coach is only as good as his team, so it's not like he can do miracles if the team is not good enough.

Many suggested that Mourinho was looking at Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic, who played the full game of the Serbian side.

"Other lads have gone straight into management".

"As a leader you can talk on the pitch but I've seen leaders who didn't necessarily talk", the midfielder submitted.
