Jose Mourinho is hanging onto his job by a thread.
The Man United manger has seen things go from bad to worse this season.
In the latest disaster, his side lost 3-1 to West Ham. Now, in the Champions League, they failed to beat Valencia.
It’s far from ideal with former star Cristiano Ronaldo’s Juventus coming up next.
However, Mourinho claimed it was a fair result, and made several digs at his players.
He noted the forwards are not in a good vein of form, and more than that, his side as a whole are simply not good enough.
He has made plenty of digs at the board and Ed Woodward over their lack of recruitment – and tonight was no different.
He made it clear he thinks the players aren’t really good enough – and also made some digs at Ed Woodward.
The Express report he said: “There were some improvements in our performance. We had probably a couple of the biggest chances to win it but I have accepted the result as a fair result,
“I said in pre-season last season was phenomenal to finish second. And I don’t say more than that.
“The players tried. They raised the level of their efforts. They raised the level of their intensity in spite of the fact we don’t have many with that intensity.
“We don’t have the technical quality to build from the back.
“We tried to do something we did well which was to stop a fast team on the counter attack. We knew we wouldn’t create 20 chances.
“Our attacking players aren’t in their best moments of confidence and individual level. We thought with three or four chances we would score and win the game.
“It is a not a bad result. Not a good result, but not bad. We have two matches against Juventus to make points. It is a very difficult group, yes.
“We have Newcastle before the league stops then we have Chelsea and Juventus in three days. It will be good for the team if we can beat Newcastle.
“I think there are things that are difficult for me to say. I think you have enough reasons to criticise me.”
