Is Manchester United Too Big For Mourinho?

Roy Keane thinks so:

“He’s manager of Manchester United, one of the biggest clubs on the planet, the squad he’s got, the players and he keeps moaning about fixtures and fatigue.

We were just looking at some of the cup draws they’ve had. They’ve had an easy way in the cups, some good draws, a lot of home draws, and the guy is talking absolute nonsense.

I’ve never heard so much rubbish in my life. Maybe the club is too big for him, he can’t deal with all these demands at the match. What matches? Man United reserves could’ve won that game.”

Hard to disagree. But remember that, unlike the United legend, Mourinho is a very experienced manager who has won everything. This could be one of his tactics to distract attention.

No Irish player in United Squad for First Time in 80 years

There’s a long history of legendary Irish players in United squad, from Denis Irwin, Paul McGrath to Roy Keane. The tradition ends with the sale of young defender Paddy McNair to Sunderland early this season.

The independent has the history and what it means for the club.
