Jose fuming with Ed Woodward after chief cancels January exchange target meeting finally minute
JOSE MOURINHO is fuming after Manchester United chief Ed Woodward cancelled a transfer summit at last.
Old Trafford manager Mourinho scheduled the meeting last week to talk January targets and examine plans for the club to acquire a director of football.
In any case, Mourinho was told at short notice that Woodward could not attend.
The Special One revealed to close advisors it had left him angry and baffled.
What’s more, it has done nothing to help the already strained relationship between Mourinho and official bad habit administrator Woodward.
The Portuguese accuses the powerlessness to sign a best focus back for United’s disappointing begin.
What’s more, he feels Woodward’s inability to act makes him complicit.
Mourinho was enthusiastic about various targets like Toby Alderweireld at Spurs, Leicester’s Harry Maguire and Bayern Munich pro Jerome Boateng.
But the United hierarchy refused to sanction any moves — and the boss is presently frantic to control enlistment
Mourinho is frustrated by the players being advanced for the winter window and has lost confidence in various senior scouts.
However a long way from getting more say over exchanges, he could wind up with less if the club pick to get a chief of football.
One individual United have NOT reached about the job is RB Leipzig’s Paul Mitchell.
Mitchell, 37, told SunSport: « Any connection with a club of that size and status is complimenting and I’m a Manchester kid. There has not been any contact with United. »
