Louis Saha Would Switch TV Off In Frustration At Jose Mourinho's Manchester United
A former Manchester United striker has revealed how he lost patience with Jose Mourinho's reign at the club and would switch off the TV in frustration.
Talking on Sky Sports, Louis Saha said he is much happier with the current set-up at United and was full of praise for the job Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has done since replacing Mourinho as interim manager back in December.
Solskjaer made six changes to the United line-up today but it made little difference as they dispatched Fulham 3-0 without any dramas.
"I wish Ole the best of luck," said Saha. "It's an amazing job and he's in an amazing position. I can't see anything against him right now. The players are behind him, the results are behind him and the fans are behind him. They love the guy.
"But the situation was so bad that as a fan sometimes I was switching off my television because it was nowhere near United. Ole has done so much to this club."
United have three huge games coming up starting with Paris Saint-Germain at Old Trafford in the Round of 16 Champions League first leg. They then face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the FA Cup fifth round before a tasty-looking home game against Liverpool on February 24.
"The Liverpool game is huge for Solskjaer," said Saha. "As a manager you are judged on how you approach and perform in these big games. It's not about a few games or a few months, it's about maintaining this legacy and Ole understands this.
"There is pressure because they are involved in all types of competition with all types of challenges. You look at the signing of Anthony Martial on a new contract because I'm sure that this is something that would not have happened without Ole. All those elements make me think Ed Woodward could offer him the job. If he wins against Liverpool, that's massive.
"The fans will want that and start to put pressure on because they don't want to change manager."
