Derry's Shane Duffy gives verdict on his goal against Manchester United

Derry's Shane Duffy gives verdict on his goal against Manchester United

"They're becoming a laughing stock and falling behind", wrote Ince, in an exclusive column for Paddy Power News.

"They won't drop out of the Champions League places as they are still good enough to get the top four".

"If they lose against Tottenham on Monday, for example, they could find themselves six points behind City with three games gone already".

Paul Pogba converted a penalty for Manchester United in the fifth minute of stoppage time to bring some respectability to the scoreline, after which figures showed that Balogun exceled after his introduction in the 20th minute. "So how do you expect to win anything?"

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is "the wrong man for the job" and will not be at the club past Christmas, says former United midfielder Lee Sharpe.

It was struggle fitting the Chilean into the team either on the left or through the middle which limited the chances for the likes of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial who have both been popular with the fans at Old Trafford.

Pogba has been granting a lot of interviews lately, and last week accentuated a rift between him and Mourinho when he admitted that there are things he can not say or else he would be fined.

He said Turkey would emerge "stronger" from the currency crisis and ruled out an International Monetary Fund bailout. The White House has said there could be more economic measures against Turkey if Brunson is not released.


In quotes from his autobiography that have recently resurfaced, the former Manchester United manager did not mince his words when discussing Pogba's agent.

"You don't need other people to tell you".

"Much has understandably been made of Mourinho's "third-season syndrome" - which usually follows a second season of winning the league title at a club - but what is just as remarkable is the familiarity of the pattern that leads to him leaving", he says. The legendary footballer blasted the Manchester United captain after they lost to Brighton & Hove Albion.

Brighton won 3-2 at The Amex thanks to goals from Glen Murray, Shane Duffy and Pascal Gross, overpowering United for large periods of the game with a solid game plan.

Sky pundit Graeme Souness called the United squad the worst set of players at the club since Sir Alex Ferguson departed.

Ince believes United could even be heading for a season like Mourinho's last at Chelsea, when the Londoners finished tenth after sacking him as coach.

But after the 3-2 loss at Brighton, Scholes said: "There's a lack of leaders in the team, that's why we thought Paul Pogba might be the ideal candidate to be that leader but he wasn't there tonight". "Paul Scholes wouldn't recognize a leader if he was in front of Sir Winston Churchill".
