Jose Mourinho has admitted his side’s results have not been good enough after four games without a win across all competitions.
The Manchester United boss is under intense pressure after United’s worst start to a league campaign for 29-years.
“We can do much better. To do that we need points – points we lost in the last two matches,” he said ahead of Saturday’s home game against Newcastle.
Asked if results were not good enough, he replied, as per BBC Sport: “Yes, I accept.”
The Portuguese said there were “many reasons” for the winless run, but declined to explain what they were.
Like many press conferences of late, Mourinho refused to be any way insightful and after asking Paul Pogba not to speak to the media about our ongoing crisis, this is probably a tactic not to give journalists anything to scrap on.
But Mourinho has done this to himself by creating enemies and tension within the club. That has backfired and he almost expects it to be swept under the carpet and for players to get on with it.
They’re human and will only take so much of his shit before reaching boiling point.
That said, they could do more to respect the fans by putting in a greater shift when the whistle is blown on Saturday. Another bad result will leave United in a right mess for this season.
