Graeme Souness sends message to Man United fans over Jose Mourinho

Graeme Souness has his say on Jose Mourinho's start to the season as Manchester United boss

Graeme Souness believes that Jose Mourinho’s touchline antics are simply all borne out of frustration at the way his Manchester United team are playing.

It has been a stuttering start to the season for the Red Devils, who appointed Mourinho as the club’s new manager back in May.

The Red Devils have only won one of their last seven Premier League games and were held to yet another frustrating 1-1 draw by West Ham United in the Premier League on Sunday.

Mourinho was sent to the stands during the game after kicking a water bottle in frustration at one of the referee’s decisions early in the game.

The Portuguese coach has subsequently been charged by the Football Association for his conduct.

United are currently 11 points behind leaders Chelsea after 13 games of the new campaign, and former Liverpool man Souness feels that Mourinho is simply frustrated by his team’s poor start to the campaign.

Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ on Monday morning, Souness said: “It’s all borne out of frustration – his team’s not winning games and he feels they should be.

“I think you have to agree with that, they’re playing enough football to be winning their last few games.

“It’s not going the way he expected it to go. He’s anything but ‘The Happy One’ now but that’s what football management does to you – it drives you crazy.
