"You don't want a Liverpool situation" – Man Utd advised on Jose Mourinho dilemma by ex-Red Devil Mark Bosnich

Posted Wednesday, July 11, 2018 by squawka.com

Former Old Trafford stopper Mark Bosnich has backed Jose Mourinho to restore Manchester United to glory.

Bosnich has urged the club to show patience with Jose Mourinho and avoid following the path of their arch-rivals Liverpool by making regular managerial changes.

Bosnich, who made 35 appearances for the Red Devils, was speaking to Goal and said: "Just stand by him [Mourinho]. Give him the opportunity, he is second against a team in Man City who can afford anyone and get anything.

"Sometimes, even after such dominance, you have got to be patient.

"You don't want to fall in a situation like Liverpool, after all those years of dominance and then all of a sudden you want to chop and change."

Liverpool were English football's dominant force during the 1970's and 80's but have failed to win a league title since 1990.
Some Manchester United fans have feared their club might be heading in the same direction – they haven't won the Premier League since Sir Alex Ferguson's final year in charge in 2013 – but Bosnich disagrees.

Jose Mourinho has already won the Europa League and League Cup double since arriving in Manchester two years ago and Bosnich said: "What everyone has got to realise is that not last season but the season before, they won three trophies [United also won the Community Shield].

"That is an amazing achievement no matter where you are at.

"This season? Okay, no trophies but far more points than last season and in second place. It takes time.

"Stick with this guy, he is a winner and he will bring the glorious times back."

Mourinho signed a contract extension in January that will keep him at the club until 2020.

He will be looking to overhaul United's local rivals, Manchester City, to win the club's 21st league title next season.
