Jamie Carragher opens up on 'combustible' situation at Man United
- The Liverpool legend states the conflict between Jose and Woodward may cause may blow up into another trophyless season
“You can never read too much into pre-season, but United appear combustible. There seem to be problems behind the scenes at Old Trafford, with many transfer targets missed – you never know where it is going to lead when Jose Mourinho starts criticising his own board and players,” he told the Telegraph.

“Chelsea have been the masters of immediately winning trophies after a managerial change,” Carragher added.
“But they will need time to adjust to a new style under manager Maurizio Sarri, even though they, too, have flexed their financial muscle in the last few days.
“Arsenal also need time under Unai Emery. A year from now both will be stronger.
“The question for Spurs is will they have a World Cup hangover? Nine of their players reached the final stages. They have kept their best team together, but the World Cup demands make it more surprising they did not add to their squad.”
