Danny Mills United lack the willpower to drop underperforming players

first_imgFormer England footballer Danny Mills says Manchester United lack the capacity to drop underperforming players unlike their rivals who do so effortlessly.Mills told The Debate in an interview obtained by Skysports that Mourinho was not blessed with the same strength in depth as some of United’s rivals, meaning he could not keep his players on their toes to achieve results.He said: “Where he has had a problem with some players is that Guardiola can drop anyone, and bring someone else in. You can’t complain about it because he has the quality to bring in, that squad is exceptional”“Mourinho doesn’t really have that depth in his squad. It’s difficult when he drops a big player, does he have the quality to replace them? No he doesn’t, in all honesty.”“It’s a bare squad in some ways. Look at Lukaku, he’s not performing and hasn’t scored at Old Trafford in a long time. But who does he bring in? He can’t. At Manchester City you’ve got players who can step in, and at Liverpool too.”“There’s competition for places. Do Manchester United have that? I’m not sure they do.”harry maguire, manchester UnitedMaguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…On the plan to buy new players, Mills said:“Jose is used to winning, he’s used to top players and he’s used to consistency. It might be a bit dour, the way he plays, but he knows what he wants.”“He wants seven or eight out of 10 every single week. He doesn’t want Jesse Lingard being brilliant one week and terrible the next, he doesn’t want Marcus Rashford doing the same, he wants a solid platform.”“Jose has never been one to really improve players or bring them through as Pep, Klopp and Pochettino have done.”“Mourinho wins trophies, but he does it with a team he can bring in of exceptional players he can mould together, and he hasn’t really been allowed to do that.”last_img read more
