According to the English footballer, the Portuguese boss was not the one Manchester United needed to be lead to glory

After Jose Mourinho was fired from Manchester United, many people have said their opinion of the “Special One.”

And for Newcastle United captain and defender, Jamaal Lascelles, Mourinho was not the right person to lead the Red Devils to glory.

“They probably needed that (a change at the top),” he told The Mirror.

“They have world-class players on big wages who have done it for their countries and for other teams, but have not done it for Manchester United.”

“Some players can only play for certain managers and that reaction you get from the players,” he added.

“Maybe (Solskjaer) might be the difference in getting the best from those players. They have a lot of quality. It will be an exciting game.”
