Manchester United's Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba backed by former Premier League winner

Posted: 24 August 2018 Time: 14:00

The current negativity surrounding Manchester United and manager Jose Mourinho has bemused former striker Dimitar Berbatov, amidst the rumours of planned protests from the club's supporters.

Panic stations have arisen at Old Trafford after an underwhelming off-season with missed transfer targets and the early season defeat to Brighton last week.

Amidst all the current negativity with manager Jose Mourinho and club-record signing Paul Poga bearing the brunt of criticism, the club's fans have begun plans of protesting against the current hierarchy.

Reports surfacing in British media claim the fans will hold a protest against the vice-executive chairman Ed Woodward, who's in charge of dealing with transfers and the Glazer family, who owns the Premier League giants.

But the Red Devils cult-hero, who won two league titles under the tutelage of Sir Alex Ferguson has questioned the current anguish amongst his former fans.

"Blame is a strong word, I don't like to use it," two-time Premier League winner Berbatov told the Belfast Telegraph.

"I think everybody - Jose, the players, Edward Woodward - is working for the better of Manchester United.

"I don't understand all this criticism going towards Paul Pogba. Anyone can have a bad game.

"Nobody wants to play bad football in a game, everybody wants to win, and every player wants to show how good he is.

"But, you know, sometimes you simply have a game where nothing is happening. Sometimes it's stuff outside of football that affects your performance, we just don't know.

"And as for Jose, it's not easy to be in charge of a team as big as United with all the seagulls around you, so many players who all want to play. It is incredibly stressful, trust me. He can definitely turn it around."
