And Fred was also Woodward finger. Wans't Mourinho's choice, but it was Fred or nothing. There are several articles about it.He tried. But Woodward.
Can you link this to me? I'm in shock and anger at the same time. I've been a staunch Jose defender because it just made no sense to me to hire a man than needs an open wallet and authority over players and deny him both. If Ed's actually insinuated this , straight from the horses mouth...I just..I don't know
I can't blame him for Pogba and Lukaku: at the time they were two of the most wanted players in the transfer market. We had to outbid top offers to guarantee both of their services.
Not trying to save his face, because Jose acted like very unprofessionally, but when your DoF doesn't give you players for the positions you asked for and doesn't let you dismiss several players, it becomes difficult to bare with.
Add this to the players morale easily becoming affected due to knowing that Mourinho clearly didn't rate some of them, but had to deal with them just because there was no alternative, it's easy to understand why we got so low.
