Jose Mourinho Slams Solskjaer

Jose Mourinho has slammed Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who took over from him after he was sacked last year. Since taking over at Manchester United, Ole Solskjaer has been able to stir the club towards good form by winning 6 of his first 6 games. However, the success the Norwegian has brought to the club has made many to criticize Mourinho and the tactics he used while in charge. Hitting back at critics, the Portuguese suggested that younger coaches like Solskjaer don’t have a real impact in terms of results. “It is very easy to play well and not win.

Man Utd Outcast Sanchez Eyes January Move To PSG

Alexis Sanchez is hoping for an exit from Manchester United with Paris Saint-Germain at the top of his list, reports the Mirror.

Cristiano Ronaldo  will return to Old Trafford as the starring sub-plot of a mouth-watering  Champions Leagueclash between  Manchester United  and  Juventus tonight.

Anthony Martial  is expected to keep his place in the United side after scoring twice against Chelsea to take his tally to three goals in his last two games for the club. Fellow forward  Romelu Lukaku  is not in such hot form in front of goal, though, having now failed to find the back of the net in his last seven outings for United. Lukaku is nonetheless expected to lead the line once again in what could be an unchanged team from the one which came so c...
