first_imgRay Parlour has told Manchester United players to end the negativity surrounding the club by pulling their socks up and start playing for the shirt.The Arsenal legend has told talkSPORT he feels the United players don’t look fit enough and said their performance against West Ham was once of the poorest he’s seen this season. Paul Pogba in action during Man United’s defeat to West Ham Mourinho is feeling the pressure in the Old Trafford dugout 3 3 Man United currently sit 10th in the Premier League with just three wins from seven games “This Champions League game tonight is absolutely vital to them. They had a really good result in the first game [against Young Boys in Switzerland], Pogba scored a great goal and played really well, so he [Mourinho] needs that same reaction tonight.“The big players have got to turn up, they have to enjoy wearing the Man United shirt, be proud of wearing the Man United shirt and give everything for the cause.” Jose Mourinho and his United team have been under the spotlight for weeks due to their dreadful start to the season, with Saturday’s 3-1 defeat to the Hammers making this their worst in 29 years.The Red Devils host Valencia in the Champions League on Tuesday night and Parlour, who is said to see one of his biggest rivals as a player suffer such a fall from grace, is hoping they bounce back.“It’s so negative at Manchester United, I’m sure the fans are sick of it at the moment,” Parlour said on Tuesday’s Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“It was probably one of the poorest performances I’ve seen against West Ham.“I don’t think the players looked fit enough, I just felt they were a yard short everywhere. West Ham wanted to win every second ball more than the United players, so that’s quite a worrying situation. “The players just don’t look fit enough……It’s so negative and the Man United fans must be sick of it!”🗣️ @RealRomfordPele has his say on Mourinho’s future and the need for #MUFC’s big stars to step up! pic.twitter.com/jl4abkoD4D— The Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast (@SportsBreakfast) October 2, 2018 “Obviously you’ve got the Pogba scenario at the moment and you’ve got Sanchez, who has been nowhere near the player he was at Arsenal.“Can Jose turn it around? It’s going to be difficult.“Once you lose that dressing room, you’re in trouble – especially big, influential players in that dressing room.“We’ve seen it so many times when the players lose respect for the manager and suddenly their performances go downhill.“So in the next two or three games the board will be looking to see what their reaction will be. 3last_img
