Paul Pogba has criticized under-fire boss Jose Mourinho after yet another disappointing Manchester United result on the weekend.
The Red Devils drew 0-0 to Crystal Palace in a toothless display to leave them 14 points behind table-toppers and bitter rivals City.
Alexis Sanchez has been ineffective at Manchester United because Jose Mourinho is playing him out of position, according to former United midfielder Paul Ince.
The Red Devils dropped another two vital points at Old Trafford on Saturday after being held to a disappointing 0-0 draw by Crystal Palace.
Mourinho’s men are now six points behind fourth-placed Chelsea in the Premier League table and a whopping 15 behind leaders Manchester City after just 13 matches of the 2018-19 campaign.
A lack of clear-cut chances and urgency in the final third were the main issues against Palace, continuing a worrying trend for United, with Sanchez only being granted a 20-minute cameo appearance.
Ince, who played for the club between 1989 and 1995, believes that Mourinho is failing to play to the 29-year-old winger’s strengths and he is becoming increasingly bemused by Marouane Fellaini’s prominent role in the team.
“We’re talking about United, no disrespect to Palace, but bringing on Fellaini before Sanchez, what is the plan?. When United can’t score, bring Fellaini on, go long, Palace are set up for that. They are relying on luck, knock downs.
“Paying Sanchez half a million pounds, and not to be a quarterback. Playing long ball. We don’t want him like that, we want him in the 18-yard area.” – he said.
