The defensive hole that is costing Manchester United and Mourinho

Jose Mourinho has said he will no longer be criticising individual Manchester United players in public, a major reversal of past patterns, following the abject performance in a 3-2 defeat at Brighton on Sunday.

Neville believes Woodward's doubting of the Portuguese boss is hurting the club and that it's not the right time to do so.

Shown the door by Roman Abramovich at Stamford Bridge, Conte will be eager to get back into management, and will no doubt want to show his qualities as a manager again, but United fans may feel a little disappointed were he to end up in the north west, as if Mourinho were to leave then they'd be desperate to gain a proven victor, preferably with significant Champions League experience.

The Australian wrote on Twitter: "Far too much focus on Mourinho after Man Utd's poor display v Brighton". My view is that [Harry] Maguire and [Toby] Alderweireld would have been good options.

"If you're going to doubt him, the time to do that was last January where you could have assessed his contract at the end of the season". I'd rather him be spiky and picking on his opponents than the internal stuff we've seen over the last few weeks where he's getting asked about his relationships with his players, his board.

Speaking in the Sky Sports studio ahead of United's trip to Brighton, Graeme Souness highlighted the hypocrisy in Jose's reaction.

"The trouble we have at Manchester United is we have got a manager who sucks the life and sucks the confidence out of the players".

But a senior Manchester United source told the newspaper: "Why would we discuss Zidane when there is no job available?"

"Ed Woodward's unhappy, the manager's unhappy, the players are unhappy and the fans are", Wright said on BBC Radio 5 live's Monday Night Club.

If Ed had chose to doubt Jose then it would've made more sense to get rid of him over the summer than to half-support him.

"Don't expect me to speak with you about it because you and your colleagues they were really critical with me in previous seasons (when) I was probably too honest, too open in my analysing".

'At the moment there is definitely an angst there between the club and Jose.' The former United defender believes Woodward has already let the manager down by not signing a defender before the transfer deadline, despite paying £75million for Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant.
