Manchester United manager, José Mourinho is to be blamed for Manchester United’s current crisis according to Top Media Nigeria answerers.

In a poll conducted on Twitter, 39% of voters believe the Portuguese tactician is responsible for United current woes. 35% feel Ed Woodward, the club’s Chief Executive is culpable, while 26% lay the blame on Mourinho’s charges.

Who is to blame for Manchester United’s current woes?

United’s disappointing run continued on Tuesday night as they turned up yet another limp display against Valencia in the stalemate at Old Trafford.

The frustrating continental draw means the Manchester club have not won in their last four matches, with their last victory coming against inferior Young Boys in the UEFA Champions League two weeks ago.

Manchester United are 10th on the Premier League log and suffered an early exit from the EFL Cup. Valencia are four places worse off than United in their league; they got beaten by 10-man Juventus in their own backyard on Matchday 1, still, José’s United couldn’t get the better of them at the ‘Theatre Of Dreams’!

Against Wolves, Derby County, West Ham and Valencia (all winnable matches) that they failed to win, they were not just disastrous in terms of result, but their display was as well a huge disappointment!

The Red Army’s defeat at the London Stadium last week meant the club made their worst start to a season in 29 years and Mourinho’s future is now in severe doubt. They’ve picked up just three Premier League wins this term (only one victory at home).

Woodward is also being criticised by a significant section of the United faithful for not reinforcing the United squad adequately at the start of the season. Diogo Dalot, Lee Grant and Fred are not in the class a club of the stature of Manchester United should be recruiting only.

In a mail sent to Woodward & a director of the club, Richard Arnold by a staunch United fan, Joe Sillett after the West Ham game, Sillett perfectly summed up United’s supporters’ discontentments:

The club apparently lack enough quality.

The manager and his players seem clueless in terms of pattern of play. Alexis Sanchez looks short of idea on the pitch, Paul Pogba – rumoured to be embroiled in a fall out with Mourinho – is an inconsistent player. Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Chris Smalling, Victor Lindelöf, et al are all not dependable. But the people have spoken. Following their voice, the blame should be on José!
