Former Red Devils keeper Mark Bosnich explained why Manchester United must be patient with Jose Mourinho, as he is certain that the Portuguese manager would bring the glory days back to Old Trafford. 

The 46-year-old asked the club not to go down to Premier League rival Liverpool path and do right by the former Real Madrid manager.

Manchester United end last season trophyless as Mourino men finished second behind neighbour Manchester City in the league.

Bosnich, who had two spells at Old Trafford says that the 55-year-old tactician needs to be given more time with the perennial champions to avoid the mistake Liverpool having made in the past with numerous changes in their bid to win Premier League again since 1990.

The Australian told Omnisport and Goal. "Just stand by him [Mourinho]. Give him the opportunity, he is second against a team in Man City who can afford anyone and get anything.

"Sometimes, even after such dominance, you have got to be patient. You don't want to fall in a situation like Liverpool, after all those years of dominance and then all of a sudden you want to chop and change. Stick with this guy, he is a winner and he will bring the glorious times back."

"People can say what they want. In modern-day football, after we saw the experience with Barcelona, that started with Pep Guardiola, out of something good can come something bad, and vice-versa."

"But, after that, just like after the Leicester thing with chairman saying 'well why can’t we do that', we saw a lot of people say 'why can’t we play like that?' So, I think a lot of teams suffer for the comparison, that’s one of the greatest club sides that anyone has ever seen playing in a way that no one has ever seen before."

"What everyone has got to realise is that not last season but the season before, they won three trophies [United also won the Community Shield]. That is an amazing achievement no matter where you are at," Bosnich said of Mourinho's United.

Mourinho led Manchester United to a Europa League and EFL Cup double in his first season at Old Trafford.
