It has been a difficult eight days for Jose Mourinho.
United were hoping to redeem themselves after their 3-2 loss against Brighton last week but a Harry Kane header and two goals from Lucas Moura after the break gave Spurs the win at Old Trafford.
The two defeats in three matches is the first for the Red Devils since 1992 this puts them six points behind Spurs, Chelsea and Liverpool in the Premier League.
Will Jose Mourinho be fired?
He signed a contract extension till 2020, irrespective he may be fired at the end of the season if they do not improve their game. Previous coaches like Louis van Gaal was sacked after an FA Cup final victory, we saw David Moyes sacked with four games to go before the end of the season
Mourinho is still living in the past, unfortunately football lives for now
He cut a frustrated figure in his post-match press conference, walking out after five minutes while demanding more respect from the media.
I won more Premierships alone than the other 19 managers together. Three for me and two for them two. So respect man, respect, respect, respect.”
The more Mourinho harks back to the past, the more he sounds like yesterday’s man and less like someone who can get United out of the hole they are in danger of slipping deeper into.
If he is fired who will replace him
He coached Belgium to their first-ever podium finish at the world cup. He may also know how to bring out the best in Lukaku and Feliani who worked with him starting lineup Belgium national team
He’s a genius tactically,” said American goal keeper Tim Howard who spent three seasons with Martinez at Everton. “He always finds a weakness in the opponent. He prepares his teams to break down the opponent. No game is the same — he changes tactics every game.”
The Italian is a fiery character himself: he routinely clashed with Chelsea’s board over transfer strategy before his departure this summer.
Conte also prefers a more cautious style of play, with his approach against City in March – in which Chelsea had just 29% possession and no shots on target – widely derided. But he is a serial winner, taking the Premier League by storm just a year ago and racking up 85 goals to United’s 54, even changing the Premier League’s attitude towards tactics and formations in the process.
He also knows how to get the best out of Paul Pogba, with the Frenchman utterly electrifying when they were together at Juventus.
Zidane became the first coach to win the European Cup in three straight seasons as the Blancos beat Liverpool 3-1 in Saturday’s UEFA Champions League final in Kyiv. He also joined Carlo Ancelotti as the only coach to have won the competition three times in the UEFA Champions League era.
