Manchester United “have big decisions” to make about the future of manager Jose Mourinho, according to former defender Rio Ferdinand.
The Red Devils’ 3-1 defeat at West Ham on Saturday made this their worst start to a top-flight season since 1989-90.
It is their third loss in seven league games and follows a home Carabao Cup exit to Championship side Derby.
“There will be conversations at the top level about the future of the manager and the squad,” Ferdinand told BT.
“The basics are not being done and something has to be said.
“You can’t let a situation like this continue throughout the season – wars in the press, leaks, players on one side of the dressing room, Mourinho and his staff on the other. If that continues this will be one of the worst seasons in the club’s history.”
