Jamie Redknapp issues stark warning to Man United boss Jose Mourinho
Jamie Redknapp warns Jose Mourinho that his Manchester United side must step their form up - and fast
Jamie Redknapp has warned Jose Mourinho that there is no getting away from Manchester United’s poor start to the season.
The Red Devils’ struggles continued on Sunday when they were held to a 1-1 draw by West Ham United in the Premier League at Old Trafford.
Matters were made worse for the Red Devils boss when he was sent to the stands in the first half for kicking a water bottle in frustration.
Sunday’s draw left United 11 points behind leaders Chelsea after 13 points of the season following a difficult start to life for Mourinho at Old Trafford.
And Redknapp has warned Mourinho that he must accept the fact that his side have failed to perform so far this term under their new boss.
Writing in his column for The Daily Mail, Redknapp said: “Everyone will be talking about Jose Mourinho kicking a bottle but it must not mask Manchester United’s poor start to the season.
“We normally see this kind of behaviour from Mourinho after three years at a club — not six months. It is clearly having a negative effect.
“This is United’s worst start to a campaign since 1990-1991 and they have not won at home in the league since September despite splashing out £160m on players.
“Mourinho has run out of excuses and his antics reflect badly on the club. When you are the manager of Manchester United you have to hold yourself better than this.”
Manchester United’s next Premier League game is a trip to Everton next Sunday as they look to return to winning ways in the top flight.
