Roy Keane Criticises Manchester United's Lack of Progress Under Jose Mourinho

Jose Mourinho needs to keep Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic on side until Paul Pogba grows up, according to Garth Crooks. "Everybody connected to this fantastic club wants success and this is the same for myself and for my players".

"I have to say I've been impressed by your dedication and commitment, as season ticket holders here at United". The Portuguese says he wants to add to his squad in the summer.

The Red Devils face AFC Bournemouth at Old Tarfford in Saturday's early kick-off.

Ander Herrera has hailed the aura which surrounds Manchester United and allows them to win games that they have little right to prevail in.

That meant PSG, in theory, would have had to fork out over €30m-a-year to meet Mourinho's net financial demands, with the Special One expecting a basic salary of around £10m-a-year.

"I look at United and the run they're on now".

In his message, the manager, whose side are now in sixth place and on a 16-match unbeaten run in the Premier League, adds that he knew what was expected of him from the stands when he arrived at the club a year ago.

Under Conte this campaign, the Spaniard has had resort to a reduced role with the Italian favoring a two-man central midfield with powerful runners and more defensive-minded Kante and Matic.

Keane insists his old side must be judged by how they perform in the marquee fixtures: "I judge United on the big games". Fabregas has created close to 4 chances every 90 minutes so far and replicating a similar rate at United will not only help the forwards increase their goal tally but also chip in himself with vital goals from midfield. He would no longer have to deal with the English Football Association, nor its referees'.

'The crowd at Old Trafford must play its part too, ' Mourinho states before going on to make his rousing claim about United's followers.
