EX-MANCHESTER UNITED midfielder Juan Sebastian Veron thinks the club's poor managerial appointments are to blame for Jose Mourinho's struggles at the club.
The Argentine played at Old Trafford for two seasons in 2001 under legendary boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

In his second season he lifted the Premier League trophy before making the switch to Chelsea for £15million.
Despite Veron's struggles to adapt in England, he still keeps a close eye on the progress of the Red Devils.
Mourinho was on the brink of the sack earlier in the campaign but a draw at Chelsea and a famous victory against Juventus has kept him in the position a little longer.
And Veron thinks the Portuguese boss can't be held accountable and it was the appointments of David Moyes and Louis van Gaal that did most of the damage.
