Andy Townsend claims Mourinho lack of trust in his defenders is the reason behind United’s problems.
“Jose doesn’t have a back four he can trust,” he told The Debate. “The type of game he plays he needs that.
If you look at when he was very successful at Chelsea, Inter Milan or Real Madrid, any of his teams have always had very solid, competitive and durable defenders in those teams.
“I know he’s spent a lot of money and people will say he’s bought Bailly and Lindelof. However, he can’t get the best out of himself or Manchester United without a back four that he can lean on. He just doesn’t have it.”
