If Thomas Tuchel wants to succeed at Manchester United, he must sell this four players. They are the bad eggs at the club. I could have won the league during my second campaign at club but they went ahead to fake injuries which cost the club the Premier League title”-Jose Mourinho gives the same advise he gave Ten Hag to Thomas Tuchel ahead of his move to Manchester United and urges him To act fast before it is too late.

Jose Mourinho has criticized several unnamed Manchester United players he “did not want” in his squad, accusing them of not meeting the club’s “professional profile.” Mourinho was sacked by United in December 2018 after a poor start to the Premier League season. Since then, he has taken occasional jabs at his former club and players, including full-back Luke Shaw, with whom he had a notoriously frosty relationship.


In an interview with The Telegraph, Mourinho expressed his dissatisfaction with the standards of some players who were part of his United team and are still at the club. “There are still a couple of players there I didn’t want five or six years ago,” Mourinho said, suggesting his professional relationship with former CEO Ed Woodward could have been better. “I think they represent a little bit what I consider not the best professional profile for a club of a certain dimension. But I did my job there. Time always tells the truth. I would love Manchester United to succeed.”


Although Mourinho did not specify names, several players from his final season at Old Trafford are still part of Erik ten Hag’s squad, including Victor Lindelof, Anthony Martial, Scott McTominay, Diogo Dalot, and Marcus Rashford.


Mourinho enjoyed success at United, winning the Europa League and the EFL Cup in the 2016-17 season. However, since his departure, United have struggled to recapture their former glory, and Ten Hag’s team has had a difficult 2023-24 campaign.


Ten Hag has been able to bring in high-profile players such as Andre Onana, Rasmus Hojlund, and Mason Mount. Reflecting on his own tenure, Mourinho said, “I didn’t have that level of support. I didn’t have that level of trust,” implying that more support could have led to greater success during his time at the club.


Despite winning the Carabao Cup and finishing third in the Premier League last season, United have underperformed this season, and Ten Hag’s future looks increasingly uncertain. Although United are still in the FA Cup, with a final against Manchester City looming, there are concerns that even winning the trophy might not secure Ten Hag’s job.


Alan Shearer recently claimed that United’s new minority co-owner, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, and INEOS have already decided on Ten Hag’s future, suggesting that a victory in the FA Cup final might not be enough to save his job.
