Five big mistakes Mourinho has made this season

It’s fair to say things aren’t going brilliantly for Jose Mourinho at Manchester United.

The Red Devils failed to score against a Burnley side they were expected by many to beat comfortably on Saturday, with Sean Dyche’s boys holding firm despite the hosts having 37 shots.

The result means United have only one win in their last Premier League games and have resultantly slipped to eighth, eight points off the summit.

Big-name players like Wayne Rooney, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and £89m world-record signing Paul Pogba have all drawn criticism for their inconsistent or ineffective performances so far this season, although some people are starting to point their finger at the manager.

Mourinho was brought to United under the remit he would restore them to the top of the English game and challenge for silverware. He was certainly given the money to do so, having spent over £150m in the summer.

But things haven’t worked out as planned and that is partly down to some of Mourinho’s actions. We take a look at five mistakes he’s made since taking the Old Trafford helm.
