Liverpool legend makes honest admission about Jose Mourinho at Man United

Jamie Redknapp admits that he is finding it uncomfortable to watch Jose Mourinho at Manchester United this season

Jamie Redknapp has admitted that he has been finding it “uncomfortable” to watch Jose Mourinho at Manchester United this season.

The Red Devils have made a stuttering start to life under their new manager, and their poor form in the Premier League continued on Sunday when they were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw by West Ham United at Old Tarfford.

Mourinho was sent to the stands for kicking a water bottle in frustration in the first half of the game as his side dropped more points in the top flight.

United have struggled to produce consistent performances this season and currently trail Premier League leaders Chelsea by 11 points after 13 games of the new season.

And Redknapp has not been impressed by Mourinho’s start to life at Old Trafford following his appointment back in May.

Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ on Monday morning, Redknapp said: “When you’re the Manchester United manager, you’re a statesman and you cannot behaviour like that.

“I know Sir Alex Ferguson’s behaviour wasn’t always exemplary but I can’t remember too many examples of him doing that.

“He looks like a man who is really, really under pressure, angry within himself, he doesn’t look happy.

“This should be his dream job, but I am finding it really uncomfortable to watch him at the moment.”
