Manchester United are in crisis.
That’s the word from midfielder Marouane Fellaini as boss José Mourinho tries to keep a lid on things.
Sunday’s shock 3-1 loss at Watford was the Red Devils’ third in a row after defeats to Manchester City and Feyenoord.
Fellaini explains: “We can say it’s a little crisis because a club like Manchester United cannot lose three games.”
United have not convinced this season, with Mourinho still figuring out what his best team is and £100m Paul Pogba struggling to make an impact since his world-record transfer arrival.
The Special One insists he is remaining calm, following reports that the players are arguing amongst themselves and José starting to single out players.
He says: “I have this capacity of balance.
“Balance is, for me, not running around the pitch when we were winning a couple of matches and nobody sees now me being too depressed.
“I’m sad. Obviously, I’m sad but, as I was telling the players, there is only one way.
“At 10.30 in the morning, we have a training session and we have to be there. They have to work, they have to show themselves with a certain kind of attitude towards negative moments.
“We need positive people to give us a positive feeling because next time these boys are going onto a football pitch, they are going to feel… the weight of the defeats.”
