Former Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini claims that the Red Devils were quick to sack Jose Mourinho.
Jose Mourinho was sacked in December, 2018, after which Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed as a caretaker.
Later, the Norwegian was appointed as the head coach of Manchester United.
However, the club’s problems weren’t solved as currently the Red Devils are 12th in the league table with just 9 points after 8 games.
And Fellaini thinks that Mourinho should have been given more time.
“They brought in one of the best managers in the world in Jose Mourinho, he wanted to build a team and they sacked him,” Fellaini told reporters. “It’s not easy to build a team in that time, you need more than two years.
“I don’t know what they will do with Solskjaer but, for me, to win things and to improve, you need time. Mourinho, for the first season, he did amazingly, he improved the team, won things. Ok, the second season was a bit more difficult, but he tried, you know, and did his best to help the team. Then they decided to sack him.
“For me, yes [United were too hasty in sacking Mourinho] because a manager like that comes and he needs a lot of players to implement his own philosophy. He wanted to build his team and after two years, or two years and a half, they decided to sack him because the results were not there.”
