Are Man Utd progressing under Jose Mourinho? The Soccer Saturday pundits give their verdict

[url=https://sbobettm.com/category/บทความ-sbobet/]sbobet24[/url] As Manchester United turn their attention from a disappointing Champions League exit towards the FA Cup, we asked the Soccer Saturday pundits whether the club are progressing under manager Jose Mourinho.

United failed to convert their stalemate in Seville into qualification as they suffered a shock 2-1 loss in the second leg, meaning a top-four finish and the FA Cup are now their only remaining targets this season.

Mourinho brought the club back into Europe's top-tier tournament by winning the Europa League last season, while also capturing the EFL Cup in his first campaign in charge.

Charlie Nicholas: Absolutely not
The answer this season is a big no. How they sit in the Premier League is much improved, but they've spent an absolute fortune to do that. They won two trophies last season and they'll be lucky to get one this year.

Have any players improved under Mourinho? Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof haven't, Pogba has gone backwards, Lukaku has been okay, not breathtakingly good, but his return has been what you expect. sbobet24

Phil Thompson: Not enough for the money spent
I would say yes they are making progress, but not greatly, especially for the money spent to assemble it. I can't say Mourinho has really turned this around and they should be doing better all considered.

We can't forget he won two trophies last season and has a chance at winning the FA Cup this campaign, while the style of football has changed since Louis van Gaal and is a bit better watch. But I don't think it is the Manchester United way still.

If you get results, everyone is happy. But if they don't get those results, the questions will come, although he is the best in the world at deflecting the tension.

Paul Merson: Not on a consistent basis
In terms of points they have, but in terms of football they haven't. Bringing Alexis hasn't worked - I didn't think it would work if I'm honest. In their defence, people will point out that they could finish second in the league. But is finishing second progress?

They are 16 points behind Manchester City, that will be more when City beat them at the Etihad. I haven't seen enough improvement on a consistent basis. I know they beat Liverpool, but they were well beaten by Sevilla over two legs.

Matt Le Tissier: League position yes, style no
Well, they are progressing in terms of their league position, but in terms of how much better they are to watch as an attractive proposition, not really.

So I guess that is progress, yes, with a caveat of how long United fans will want to watch this style of play for sbobet24

Andres Iniesta's China move 'in doubt' over salary issues

sbobet Barcelona legend Andres Iniesta's move to China may be in doubt, after his prospective new club Chongqing Lifan said they would not pay a huge salary. The Chinese Super League club have indicated they will not pay the Barcelona playmaker a salary that would distort the market.

In a statement on China's biggest social network website Weibo on Friday, the Chinese side's president Jiang Lizhang said the club are working with Iniesta in areas including marketing and youth education, but there is no deal in place for him to play. Chongqing said the club would adhere to rational investment and follow rules set by the government-controlled Chinese Football Association, which includes a salary cap across the division. sbobet

Barca captain Iniesta, 33, announced in April that he would leave the club he joined as a 12-year-old in the summer, with reports suggesting he would be moving to Chongqing. Further reports in Spain recently indicated Iniesta was close to agreeing a three-year deal with the Super League club, worth in the region of 81 million euros (£71.3m). A rising star of Barca's famed La Masia academy, Iniesta made his senior debut at the age of 18 in 2002. The 33-year-old has won both the La Liga title and the Copa Del Rey this season with the Catalan club. sbobet
