Man Utd news: Jose Mourinho transfer disappointment explained by Sky Sports pundit


 That is the verdict of Sky Sports pundit Matt Le Tissier, who says the United gaffer has no trust in his centre-backs  Mourinho has welcomed Paul Pogba, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic, Victor Lindelof, Alexis Sanchez, Diogo Dalot, Fred and Lee Grant to Manchester since being appointed in 2016  And, of those those 11 players, Ibrahimovic and Lukaku are the only two who can be viewed as a real successes, with Dalot and Fred still needing time to make their mark  Pogba and Sanchez have been the most high-profile flops of the Jose Mourinho era at United  And the Portuguese will be hoping for much better from them when Manchester United visit Chelsea on Saturday  Le Tissier has now offered his take on why the Red Devils are so far off the pace set by Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool  And he believes Mourinho will be unhappy about how the transfer deals that have happened under his watch have panned out  “If you look at United on paper they should challenge but I just don’t think Mourinho has any trust in his centre-backs and he doesn’t know what his best pairing is,” Le Tissier told Sky Sports  “He seems disappointed with the players he brought in as he would expect more from them ” United travel to Chelsea this weekend seven points adrift of the early pacesetters  And Mourinho will be under yet more pressure if his side are beaten by Maurizio Sarri’s men  Le Tissier’s Sky Sports colleague Charlie Nicholas believes a defeat could spell trouble for the United gaffer  And he’s expecting a few departures during the January transfer window if the 55-year-old is kept on  “United finished second last year so they’ve got loads of quality, they just can’t fit it in and if Mourinho can’t than who can?” Nicholas said  “They’ve got too many midfielders looking for the same places. “I’m not convinced by the centre of their midfield and he’s tried every solution at the back but just can’t find the answer  “They’re way, way off and if they lose this game, it’ll be all the questions about him losing his job again  “Even if he keeps his job, and they’re playing like this, I can see four or five players being moved on in January ”
