Manchester United have become a laughing stock under Jose Mourinho, according to Paul Ince.

The Red Devils are currently coming to terms with their disappointing 3-2 loss to Brighton in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon as they lost their second top-flight game of the new campaign.

Mourinho has cut an increasingly frustrated figure at Manchester United in recent weeks and the Red Devils only managed to bring in three new players in the summer transfer window.

The Portuguese coach has been tasked with steering Manchester United to a genuine Premier League title challenge this term, but they are struggling to find consistent form already this season.

And former Manchester United star Ince feels that the Red Devils have become a laughing stock in their rivals’ eyes following their recent struggles.

Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Ince said: “Other clubs and fans are having a field day at the minute, seeing what is happening at Man United.

“They’re becoming a laughing stock, and falling behind

“You would never have seen this going on with Sir Alex Ferguson as manager, especially not playing out in public. At Man United, everything from top to bottom is in turmoil, and it shows.

“Should Mourinho leave? No. Should Man United as a club get their house in order? Absolutely. That’s the whole lot. From the top down, Ed Woodward, Jose Mourinho, Paul Pogba, everything is a total mess.”

Manchester United will look to return to winning ways in the Premier League on Monday night when they take on Tottenham Hotspur in the top flight at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils have not won the Premier League title since their final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2013.

Manchester United did win a trophy double in Mourinho’s first season in charge at Old Trafford.
