Mourinho and Woodward in Man United talks as club look to put issue to bed

Manchester United fans here in the Tavern are doing their best to get behind the team, as they head into the most crucial few months in their season. 

The Red Devils still await the return of the Premier League trophy to Old Trafford, with many of our local Mancunians believing that Jose Mourinho isn’t the right man for the job. But, the Manchester United chief has his own issues that he’d like to resolve, as according to reports from ESPN, Jose Mourinho and Ed Woodward have held talks to discuss the atmosphere at Old Trafford.

Indeed, Jose Mourinho and executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward have met to discuss the Manchester United manager’s comments about the atmosphere at Old Trafford. The 55-year-old has repeatedly criticised the atmosphere that’s being produced in home fixtures since taking over, and branded United’s home to be “a quiet stadium” following their game against Huddersfield earlier this month.

It’s understood that Mourinho has asked for a detailed history of the atmosphere problems and has charged members of his backroom staff with talking to supporters around Manchester to gain a better understanding of the problem. Encouragingly, he also privately asked Woodward if there’s anything that him and his players can do to help solve the atmosphere issues.

Although, it appears that the club are making moves to try and promote a noisier environment in the stadium, after agreeing for supporters to move into the L Stand where away fans would usually be housed for their game against Brighton and Hove Albion next month.

Landlord’s Verdict: 

The talks between Woodward and Mourinho could prove crucial in their future home matches, as the Red Devils have been without their so called ‘twelfth man’ at times throughout the manager’s reign. And, with the pair now acting to increase the atmosphere at Old Trafford, this has delighted many of our local residents after seeing their desperation to improve the club.
