Manchester United open up on demands to appoint Jose Mourinho THIS WEEK



| Last Updated:


Manchester United have responded to demands that Manchester United must appoint Jose Mourinho this week following Erik ten Hag’s loss against Crystal Palace.

Monday night saw what might be Manchester United‘s worst defeat of the season, as the club suffered a dismal 4-0 loss against Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

Horrid performances from the likes of Casemiro and Jonny Evans saw Michael Olise, Jean-Philippe Mateta, and Eberechi Eze completely outplay a tattered United back line, with Erik ten Hag‘s men shipping four goals.

With three remaining league fixtures against Arsenal, Newcastle United, and Brighton and an FA Cup final trip to Wembley Stadium against Manchester City to come, some are worried that United will lose every single one of their last four games.

With this in mind, there have been calls to sack Ten Hag this week and bring in Jose Mourinho in an interim capacity to manage the remaining games and try to win the FA Cup final.

Mourinho demands

Along with many United fans, former Tottenham player Jamie O’Hara has also posed the question of bringing in Mourinho for the final few games.

O’Hara wrote on X: “Get Jose (Mourinho) in for four games, that can’t go on, Pep and Arteta would be going ‘oh here we go’, do it Man Utd!”

O’Hara continued on talkSPORT, saying: “If you’re a manager now, maybe they’re speaking to someone for the summer – I’d take the job! You’ve got nothing to lose in the Premier League because that’s over. You could win a trophy.”

He continued: “Give it to Mourinho for a couple of weeks. Why not? A chance to win a trophy… they ain’t winning it with Ten Hag, forget about that. They’re done… I think they should get on the phone to Mourinho.”

Jose Mourinho has an excellent record in finals, winning 18 of the 22 he has managed.

United have responded

Reports from Tuesday morning have now shown United’s response to the idea of Mourinho – and they are not going to go for it.

According to the Manchester Evening News, Mourinho “would love” the chance to manage the Old Trafford club again after he won two trophies in three seasons, but it will not happen.

United’s response to the idea is that they do not want to reappoint the man they sacked in December 2018. The report also explains that “Mourinho has told confidants he would “walk” to Manchester to manage United for a second time”
