Manchester United chat
Athletico's recruitment strategy has been amazingly good for years now. They keep getting excellent players, and until recently, spent very little doing it. We should just hire the people running that club.
Looking very much like Jose’s actions in the last few weeks are him preparing the ground for something close to ‘unfair dismissal’. If not in the legal sense, then certainly in the sense of clearing the way for his next job.
Half of me thinks it might be a good thing that the negativity becomes refocused on the board after he’s gone. But then we’ve been there before and it doesn’t solve anything.
It's also pretty strange that Martial would want to sign a new contract having been so clearly marginalised and had supposedly stated he wanted to leave during the summer. Why would he want to stay at a club managed by Mourinho and does he know something we don't (officially) yet?
