Jose Mourinho warned about keeping Man United fans happy
Paul Ince says that Man United fans want to see attacking football this season
Paul Ince believes that Manchester United fans are simply not happy because the Red Devils are not playing entertaining football this season.
The Red Devils slumped to a surprise 3-2 defeat by Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon as they tasted defeat in just their second game of the campaign.
Mourinho has cut a frustrated figure at Old Trafford in recent weeks after the Red Devils only brought in three new players during the summer transfer window.
The Portuguese coach has been tasked with steering Manchester United to a genuine Premier League title challenge this season, with the Red Devils not having lifted the top flight trophy since their famous final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2013.
And Ince has insisted that Mourinho must try and focus on keeping the Manchester United fans appeased as he looks to enjoy a successful third season at Old Trafford.
Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Mourinho said: “I can see now that fans are turning against Jose Mourinho, and I can understand why. When you see Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham – they’re all playing the kind of football you expect from a Manchester United side.
“The fans want to see attacking football. They want to see the kind of performances they’re used to from United sides, even if the result is sometimes disappointing.
“They’re right to be upset, because I don’t believe they’re going to see that this year either. I watched the game on Sunday, and I physically couldn’t see what Mourinho and United were trying to do. There was no gameplan whatsoever.
“When you’re managing at Old Trafford, you’re expected to play a certain style, and if you’re not then there’s going to be issues with the fans and the club.”
Manchester United will return to Premier League action on Monday night when they take on Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils finished in second place in the Premier League and without a trophy last season under Mourinho.
