Manchester United were horrendous in West Ham defeat - Luke Shaw

As Manchester United's domestic season threatens to go off the rails, manager Jose Mourinho doesn't believe his whole squad is showing an adequate amount of concern.

United's potential interest is also impacted by the fact that Zidane does not actually speak English which - while not something which has stopped managers from succeeding in the past - is obviously not ideal.

Following the weekend loss to West Ham Pogba was asked about the team's performance and he simply answered saying, "You want me dead?".

"Every player is different, no player is the same", he said. I think teams are scared when they see Man United attacking and attacking.

"It is a collective thing", Mourinho said.

Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has reportedly told his friends that he is anxious with the current lackluster performance of the Premier League club. "The player is sick of getting criticised in the media and has actually told people close to him he is better off not playing in a Mourinho team".

"No, I don't think (my job is on the line)", the United boss said, having earlier made light of a report that he was fearing for his job after a call from the Frenchman. "We are here to prevent them from performing at their peak".

"Of course when you play for Man United everyone expects that you win games".

Regardless of issues off the pitch, the players have a duty to perform to their highest standard on it.

Meanwhile, Antony Martial, Eric Bailly and Marcus Rashford have all had their loyalty to the manager questioned in recent weeks.

United's 10 points from seven games is the same as in 2013-14 under David Moyes, but an inferior goal difference means this is their worst top-flight start since they picked up seven points in 1989-90.

Jesse Lingard, Ander Herrera, Ashley Young and Marcos Rojo missed training ahead of the match against Valencia on Tuesday.
