Manchester United midfielder, Maroune Fellaini, has said that the team is in crisis following its third straight defeat in one week. The club had started perfectly under new boss, Jose Mourinho, but stuttered after a loss to City rivals, led by the Portuguese tactician’s fiercest rival, Pep Guardiola. The Red Devils had then lost their opening Europa League game at Feyenoord before their latest humiliation in the hands of Watford in the Premier League.
The Belgium player stated that such results are unacceptable at the club. Fellaini was part of the team that fell at Vicarage Road over the weekend.
“We can say it’s a little crisis, because a club like Manchester United cannot lose three games,” the former Everton man said to SFR Sports.
With calls for captain Wayne Rooney’s exclusion from the squad by critics, it is agreeable that the team may actually be in crisis as Mourinho has to make the decision of either dropping his captain or sticking with him.
United have the chance of ending their poor run when they play Northampton Town at Sixfields Stadium in the League Cup.
