 A former striker of Manchester United, Louis Saha, has implored the numerous fans of the club to offer manager Jose Mourinho the needed support as he strives to turn things around.

Since the 2018/19 football season started,United have struggled for consistency, and currently trail Premier League leaders Manchester City by 12 points after last week's 3-1 derby defeat at the Etihad.

In spite of the dwindling fortunes of United,  Saha believes  Mourinho is still the right manager for Manchester United

To Saha , the Portuguese manager is capable of reversing the club's fortunes this season.

"He is definitely someone who can do that," said Saha, who scored 42 goals in 124 games for United.

"He has got the quality, the pedigree, there is nothing wrong with that. We make mistakes as humans and he has done it. He is a grown man and he will identify where he has to improve.

"He doesn't have as much margin to do it, but the club have identified they need to be stable to be consistent.” he stressed

On Pogba’s performance during the Russia 2018 World Cup, Saha said "It is a different atmosphere. In terms of the World Cup, for example, the manager managed him in a way that players around him were complimentary," .

Adding, he said "The World Cup was only one month, but the championship is completely different. You have a set of challenges that you can't always anticipate.

"The mentality of Pogba has been challenged sometimes by the manager. It is really hard to put your finger on what happened.

"But the guy is an immense player with a lot of quality and people will always talk about him."
