A growing number of Manchester United players are losing faith in manager Jose Mourinho and believe that he is certain to be sacked, according to a report
The Red Devils are without a win in four matches and face a daunting run against Chelsea, Juventus and Manchester City in the next six weeks.
Mourinho’s time at Old Trafford has been littered with allegations of fallouts with his players, the most prominent of which has been his ongoing feud with France international Paul Pogba.
Results on the pitch have suffered too, with United failing to win any silverware last season and making their worst start to a league campaign since 1989-90 so far this term.
More than half of the dressing room no longer believe in Mourinho and believe the club have no option but to sack him, according to the Mirror.
The report – citing a source close to the dressing room – goes on to say that the players feel inhibited by the negative atmosphere created by Mourinho and are tired of the manager shifting the blame for poor performances elsewhere, instead of assuming it himself.
United are winless in their last four games across all competitions heading into Saturday’s home Premier League match against Newcastle United.
The players see no way back for Mourinho at the club and believe it’s only a matter of time before he is sacked or steps down.
