“THE problem is – when things do not go well for Mou, he does not follow the club’s line. He follows José’s line.”

That’s not a line uttered in the last few weeks, as Jose Mourinho’s Old Trafford fortress starts to crumble. It’s from a 2014 anecdote provided by an executive at Gestifute, his agent Jorge Mendes’s agency, for an explosive book by journalist Diego Torres – The Special One: The Dark Side of Jose Mourinho – written in 2014.

Manchester United’s executives initially avoided the risk of going for Mourinho to replace Sir Alex Ferguson, fearing the fact that according to The Special One, no institution is bigger than he is. But the sense of crisis, and urgent pang to re-claim silverware and keep pace with Manchester City, saw them take a gamble appointing him to replace Louis van Gaal, despite all the warnings.
