Paul Pogba part of a bigger problem, says Viv Anderson

Transfer news live

After failing to back manager Jose Mourinho in the transfer market, United's executive vice-chairman drew criticism after the club's 3-2 defeat at Brighton on Super Sunday.

Tweeting to his 120,000 followers on Twitter after the game, Duffy said: "First prem goal what a performance from the lads and a result we needed!"

It was the manner of the defeat, not the score line itself, which has left so many pundits awaiting the usual third-season collapse for Jose Mourinho at Manchester United.

"(Mourinho) is the wrong man for the job", he told Sky Sports.

Sharpe, who was part of the United side that won the Premier League and FA Cup double in back-to-back seasons between 1994 and 1996, says the current boss should treat his players in the same manner as Alex Ferguson did.

The key factors are disputes over signings and rumours of dressing room unrest, combined with a negative energy that overwhelms the club.

Twitter Muzzles Conspiracy Theorist Alex Jones for a Week
As of last night the site still appeared to have trouble loading, but Gizmodo could not independently confirm the cause. The video is no longer available on Twitter or Periscope, where Jones posted it.

'It worked and I think they got a little bit frustrated and that was the gameplan'.

Whether a technical director would be given the power to drive recruitment remains to be seen but he could provide a daily point of contact for the manager as well as more "football expertise" at the top of the club, even if Woodward is unlikely to be willing to cede too much power.

Paul Pogba's situation at Manchester United continues to become more and more complicated. Nobody digs out their players in public. It might be different to how you treat other people but you have to do what you have to do to get the best from him.

"There are enough issues at Manchester United without Raiola getting involved".

Klopp and Guardiola have put their stamp on their respective squads while Manchester United are nowhere near the team Mourinho wants it to be. Any player can take their time to settle into new surroundings but United fans rightly thought that this was one player who they knew would produce the goods for them, both in front of goal and in terms of creativity. The Ivorian must feel unwanted and under significant pressure at the moment, which partially absolves him of blame for a harrowing 90 minutes in Brighton. "I'm not sure but it needs to be sorted out for United to have any chance this season".
