Jose Mourinho and Ed Woodward will have to find a way to work together.
That’s according to Peter Kenyon, who knows both men well – and who noted that Man United are always going to be bigger than any one person – and that bringing players in is key.
Woodward has received criticism this transfer window once again and it seems that his hold on the purse strings and failure to bring in the players Jose Mourinho wants has certainly caused a fair amount of issues, with Mourinho making his unhappiness clear.
“They have to work it out and they’ll find a way of working it out,” Kenyon, United’s former chief executive, said in an appearance on BBC Radio 5 Live’s “Sportsweek” on Sunday.
“United is bigger than anybody, bigger than any individual and that’s always been the mantra.
“It will get worked out and I would hope Jose is part of that working it out because he is incredibly skilled and he’s demonstrated he can do things.”
Mourinho doesn’t just have issues in terms of bringing players into the club – there has also been a huge amount of speculation surrounding some of the players currently at the club, and no one more so than Paul Pogba.
The midfielder has been linked with a return to Juventus and also a huge money move to Barcelona – something that won’t be coming off this summer, unless all records and expectations are broken.
Manchester United begin their Premier League campaign with a home match against Leicester this coming Friday.
