John Terry opens up on Man United under Jose Mourinho

John Terry opens up on Man United under Jose Mourinho

United are looking for a "recruitment analyst", according to the Manchester Evening News, which would be someone who can work with the scouting network to properly gauge a player's suitability for the club.

Manchester United have already stumbled a couple of times in the Premier League this season, and ahead of England's clash with Spain at Wembley at the weekend, Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho suffered an embarrassing fall of his own.

The buck does not stop with the manager anymore - Mourinho admitted that himself at the start of the season when, unhappy that the club failed to secure all of his summer targets, he claimed: "I'm now a coach, not a manager". They know where I am.

"Footballers in today's game are commodities and a group of them together speak louder than any one manager". Ajax is my club and I would like to stay longer. "He told me about his experience and I took it into account". If they called me, I would go; I would enjoy it.

"I still have a contract, I am playing there at the moment, but who knows what will happen in the next few months". Then we would play creative football again.

But therein lies the real problem - United have spent large amounts of money on the centre of their defence over the last two summers only to quickly decide the players weren't quite what they needed.

It is not hard to see why Mourinho has become so frustrated with his £89m midfielder, but Special One is now pretty much the Powerless One when it comes to dealing with him. "A good man. A good leader".
