Seedorf: Manchester United need ‘patience’ with Mourinho

Clarence Seedorf has said that Manchester United need to have some patience to get back towards the top  of the Premier League.

Manchester United enjoyed their best Premier League season since the retirement of the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson last time out, finishing second behind Man City with 81 points.

This time out, however, it has been a dreadful campaign, with the Red Devils languishing down in eighth having already been beaten four times in their opening 12 league games.

However, AC Milan icon and current Cameroon manager Seedorf has said that the Old Trafford outfit are still in transition following Sir Alex’s retirement, and they should have patience with current incumbent, Jose Mourinho.

“After Ferguson, it’s just difficult,” Seedorf told Sky Sports News.

“It’s a transition phase still, and not only Ferguson but the players that he had.

“Once the last team of [Paul] Scholes, [Ryan] Giggs and [Wayne] Rooney fall away, it’s a part of the club that leaves the heart of the team. To replace that you need to have patience.

“That’s not only happened with Manchester United, it’s happening in Milan but they need to keep on working. I think they have all the means to be able to stay competitive.

“He [Mourinho] definitely has an interesting track record.

“It’s up to the club and him to understand whether his management still has influence and he can turn things around.

“He definitely has the capacity – I don’t think we have to discuss Mourinho’s qualities but sometimes things just don’t go and that could be the main decision to stop working with each other.”
