Jose Mourinho needed ‘more than two years’, says Marouane Fellaini
Marouane Fellaini believes Manchester United were too quick to sack Jose Mourinho and criticised the club’s quick turnaround in firing and hiring managers.
The Belgian spent five-and-a-half years at United, during which time he played under four different managers, before leaving Old Trafford in January for Shandong Luneng in the Chinese Super League. Fellaini won the EFL Cup and Europa League under Mourinho in 2017 but the Portuguese was sacked in December last year after a poor run of results.
However, United’s problems have not settled with Mourinho’s departure – with successor Ole Gunnar Solskjaer presiding over the club’s worst start to a season for 30 years this term – and Fellaini believes the former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss should have been given more time.
