Lee Sharpe hints that Jose Mourinho is not giving players enough instructions

Jose Mourinho news

Lee Sharpe has hinted that Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is not giving players adequate instructions ahead of games this season.

According to the former United player, Mourinho only picks his team and allows them to do the rest on the pitch.

"I’ve heard a little whisper to say the manager is not really giving them a lot of instruction before games. He’s just picking the team and letting them get on with it," Lee Sharpe told talkSPORT.

Sharpe opined that Mourinho is sulking over the fact that he didn't get the players he wanted in the summer and is just letting the players do their thing.

United failed to land any of their central defensive targets during the transfer window. Just before the close of the window in England, Jose had said United will face a difficult season if they failed to sign players.

Prior to that statement, United had completed the signing of Fred, Diogo Dalot, and Lee Grant.
