A report from The Times has revealed that Jose Mourinho was frustrated at Manchester United’s inability to offload players during his two and a half year reign at the club.
Mourinho managed to win the League Cup and the Europa League during his time at Old Trafford, as well as guiding them to a second-place finish in the Premier League.
However, his time at United was not considered a success by some and The Times have now revealed that the Portuguese coach was unhappy with the club’s transfer business.
It is specifically mentioned that the Tottenham head coach was in a loss to explain why the Red Devils could not move on the likes of Matteo Darmian, Daley Blind, and Marcos Rojo.
While Blind and Darmian hardly featured under the 57-year-old, Rojo played an important role in his first season before falling out of favour.
The report claims that Mourinho was also unhappy with some of the incomings during his time at United.
This is a problem that can come back to haunt the Spurs boss in North London, with reports indicating that his relationship with Tanguy Ndombele is strained (The Athletic), but the club’s hierarchy does not wish to sell their record signing (Football.London).

Jose is a man who is always demanding of full support from the board. I have no doubt that if he had his way, we would sell Ndombele and reinvest the money into the squad. However, the transfer decisions at Spurs are very much a collective one with Steve Hitchen also having an important say. So far, Jose has made all the right noises about being on the same page as the club’s hierarchy. However, we know that Daniel Levy’s negotiation tactics can often make it notoriously difficult to move some players on, while the way we secure our targets can also be frustrating. Unless the Spurs chairman changes his ways, I suspect he might be on a collision course with Mourinho.
