Ed Woodward can't contend he wasn’t warned by Jose Mourinho!
The Manchester United manager demanded defensive reinforcements over a summer though a club’s executive vice-chairman unsuccessful to broach a goods.
Mourinho had identified a likes of Toby Alderweireld, Jerome Boateng and Harry Maguire as intensity possibilities to strengthen a counterclaim that was bailed out on countless occasions by David De Gea final season.
Woodward, however, refused to permit any serve additions to Mourinho’s patrol after a signings of Fred and Diego Dalot that were done before to a World Cup.
Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof started alongside any other on a south seashore and both were during error as Brighton raced into an early two-goal lead with both Glenn Murray and Shane Duffy capitalising on hulking defending.
Romelu Lukaku halved a necessity though a impulse of folly from Bailly shortly before a mangle authorised Chris Hughton’s side to revive their advantage from a chastisement spot.
‘There’s 5 centre-backs during a club. Is there a span among them who we would trust to take we to a title? That’s a doubt Jose needs to answer,’ Gary Neville told Sky Sports.
Judging by a response on Twitter, United fans are flattering assured they know a answer to that doubt and who to reason responsible…
I’m so blissful Ed Woodward saw clarity and didn’t spend income on an gifted centre half. Football genius. #clown #BRIMUN
