Mourinho not at fault, Man United directors are - Babbel

Paul Pogba and Jose Mourinho have not seen eye to eye recently

He told Belgian newspaper HLN: 'The last season under Mourinho was not pleasant anymore, we didn't win, we got into a sort of routine, training-training without having fun, it was better for all parties that the collaboration came to an end.

Jose Mourinho travelled across Europe to watch a historic first meeting between Serbia and Montenegro on Thursday night, reportedly in order to have a closer look at centre-back Nikola Milenkovic.

The 55-year-old's relationship with star midfielder Paul Pogba has also dominated headlines as United already sit seven points off the pace in the Premier League.

A man now working as assistant to Mourinho after hanging up his boots over the summer told the Daily Mail : "When people ask me about him - 'Jose, what's he like, what's he bring?' - it's winning that is the thing that strikes me the most".

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

Le Saux, who grew up playing football in his native Jersey before going on to enjoy a superlative career with Blackburn, Chelsea and Southampton, added: 'Performance-wise, Manchester United are a shadow of where they should be in terms of the quality they've got and the status of the club.

Two Israelis killed, third wounded, in West Bank shooting
On Friday, three Palestinians, including a 13-year-old boy was killed during protests in the Gaza strip and the Jewish state. The Israeli Defense Forces said they are investigating how the suspect was able to bring a weapon into the industrial park.

Manchester United are in desperate need of a boost following their miserable start to the season which has seen them drop to eighth in the table.

But he struggled in his second season with Manchester United due to injury which forced him to face the exit doors. It's fully insane, I can't believe it. Great passing and great offensive players.

Yet the value of him returning to Old Trafford would not be measured in goals by Mourinho.

Allegri, who has previously been linked with Arsenal, took control of the Italian champions in 2014, and has led the club to four straight Serie A titles.

"People say 'what's the right path to take?' Do you go down a level?"
