Former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho believes that the current situation of United under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is worse than before.
Notably, United on Sunday were beaten 0-2 by West Ham at the London Stadium in the 2019-20 Premier League. This led them drop down to eighth in the table.
“I’m not the right person to answer it,” Mourinho said on Sky Sports when asked about United’s problems.
“They are far [from the top two]. It’s difficult for me to answer. For two seasons I could feel lots of positive things; obviously the third season was not good enough. I was sacked – probably deservedly because the final responsibility comes as a manager – but the sad reality is they’re worse than before.
“Maybe people think that I’m enjoying the situation but I’m not. I have people at the club that I love and I have a lot of respect for the fans. I think they are going to be really in trouble to get not just into the top four but the top six. It’s with a sad feeling that I say that.”
Commenting on United’s display at the London Stadium, Mourinho added: “I can’t find any positives.
“We were bad last season, but I don’t see any improvement this season – even with three new players (Harry Maguire, Dan James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka).”
