Manchester suffered a shock 3-2 defeat against Brighton & Hoves on Sunday in their second match of the season. The Red Devils went two goals down halfway in the first interval, Lukaku pulled one back but a wreck-less Eric Baily challenger restored Brighton’s two goal lead before the end of the first interval. Paul Pogba penalty proved to be merely a consolation.
The Manchester club finished second last season and 19 point adrift of their neighbors and eventual champions Manchester City. The Red Devils also missed out on an FA cup against Chelsea in the finals.
Mourinho have faced media onslaught since the end of the game with many criticizing his tactical approach as well as his player management method. The Portuguese seems to have lost the confidence of a vast majority of players in his former club Chelsea in 2015 before eventually been relieved of his duties.
Former Spurs and QPR manager Redknapp believes that the Portuguese is beginning to lose confidence of the dressing room. “United’s players no longer seem to be responding to their manager. Eight of this side appeared in the World Cup quarter-finals. Many of them will be thinking, ‘Why can’t we play Pep Guardiola’s brand of football?’” Redknapp told the Daily Mail.
Manchester United is yet to lift the Premier league since the departure of Alex Fergusen in 2013
