Jack Pitt-Brooke said that Jose Mourinho shouldn’t have been the manager of Manchester United. However, Neil Custis, the Sunday Supplement panelist didn’t agree to it.
The Portuguese coach had been dismissed from Manchester United in the month of December after he served for 2 and half years. He has been replaced by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and he is still to lose a game.
Players like Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, and Paul Pogba appear to be rejuvenated under Solskjaer. According to Pitt-Brooke, this proves how wrong Jose Mourinho had been for Manchester United. He says that Manchester United is playing so well under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
He says that when someone develops a squad consisting of the most talented players from Europe, appointing someone who doesn’t have the interest to get only the best out of them appears like a betrayal to talented players. They were going to be served better only by having a better manager in the year 2016, who looked forward to getting the best out of them.
He goes on to say that Jose Mourinho wasted the potential that this talented player to such an extent that winning the League Cup or Europa League is not going to make up for it. The cons that Jose Mourinho has outweighed the pros.
If someone better had been appointed to handle Pogba, Martial, and Rashford, they might have been in a better place.
Jason Burt also feels that Mourinho had been a poor appointment. It was the wrong guy at the wrong club.
