Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is concerning for the club. This is what former Red Devils defender Paul Parker believes. He also want the Portuguese manager to stop criticizing his own player.

“After 16 years as a manager, he still hasn’t learnt to lose with dignity — shifting the blame for everything on to referees and his players.” Parker said to Eurosport. He went on to add that there were concerns when the 53-year-old was declared as the United manager and the recent criticism of left-back Luke Shaw has made him more worried for the club.

According to the former right-back at Old Trafford, Mourinho shouldn’t say whatever he wants because of his past successes. There will be a time when the players will revolt and the former Real Madrid and Chelsea manager should learn a trick or two from Sir Alex Ferguson.

“If it was Sir Alex Ferguson, the players would bite their tongues, but even he never went to the press and pulled out one player. You would have thought Mourinho had learnt his lesson from Chelsea.” Parker added.

Parker featured for United from 1991 to 1993 when Ferguson was the Old Trafford supremo. The man from West Ham, London, England fears that the Red Devils could miss out on the top four position in the Premier League again this season.

The three initial wins in the Premier League were deceptive to the true state of the current United squad. The United of the old should have won those matches scoring more goals, according to ESPN.

Parker has also prevented himself from criticizing new summer signing Paul Pogba. He has revealed that the France international needs more players around him to deliver his best at Old Trafford. The player who could bring out the best from the ex-Juventus midfielder is Bastian Schweinsteiger.
