    Ex Liverpool ace - Mourinho not the right man for Manchester United job

    Stan Collymore has urged Manchester united to part ways with Jose Mourinho



    Mourinho was left disappointed following Ed Woodward failing to deliver his demands during the summer transfer window.


    The Manchester club signed Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant, however,Mourinho wanted at least two more players.

    And former Liverpool ace Collymore says Mourinho isn’t the right man to take United forward, claiming it's time for the Portuguese to leave.

    “When Jose Mourinho arrived at Manchester United, I saw a match made in heaven,” Collymore told the Daily Mirror.


    “A born winner, I thought he would learn and grow in the Old Trafford hot seat, become more smiley and a better politician.

    “But I was wrong.

    “I see that he just can’t help himself with the snarling and the surliness.

    “And right now there isn’t a poorer fit of manager and club in the Premier League, arguably not anywhere in Europe.”

    “The fact they brought in Paul Pogba two years ago for a world-record fee shows the clout they still have.

    “And even if they’d finished eighth, ninth or 10th the year before, as a player, you would still sign for them.

    “United and Liverpool are the only clubs in England you could say that about because none of the others can offer a player the chance to become a club legend in the same way they can.

    “You get the opportunity to make yourself a global superstar on the same stage as Sir Bobby Charlton, George Best, Kenny Dalglish, Ian Rush and Steven Gerrard.

    “But I just don’t believe players look at Mourinho these days and think, “Yes, I’m desperate to play for him”.

    “If there was a choice of managers, I’d want to play for - in terms of the privilege of playing for them - it would be Pep Guardiola, Mauricio Pochettino and Jurgen Klopp, for starters.

    “Then it would be ­people like Slavisa Jokanovic and Nuno Espirito Santos.

    “And even some of the managers lower down I’d rather work with because I’d know I was going to have a happier time as an individual and as a player than I would under Mourinho.

    “As a player, it all boils down to whether or not you are enjoying your football and your experience - your enjoyment is one of the reasons you play well.”
