Yep. This is partly why I defended Mourinho’s time there. Sure he didn’t help himself being miserable in front of the cameras but there was a reason for that. He was being undermined. It’s a lesson for Levy. I suspect he will be more open with Mourinho though and Mourinho wouldn’t of taken a job with us without both men knowing what they were getting in to.Reading some United fans' comments online, and they're a bit more wistful now that it looks like Mourinho was telling the truth and less to blame about his ending there than they thought.
Last week Woodward admitted to blocking "one or two" of his transfers, and now he's admitted to giving new contracts to players who weren't good enough:
Whilst it's not necessarily a bad strategy, it clarifies a lot of what Mourinho was moaning about and blows the "Poch would be backed more at United" thing apart somewhat.
