Man Utd stars 'downed tools' under Mourinho and Cardiff win proved that, insists Ray Parlour

United chief Ed Woodward took action after another poor showing at Liverpool and sacked Mourinho after the club’s worst ever start to a Premier League campaign.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has taken over until the end of the season and after Saturday’s win in South Wales, the United legend looks to have erased the doom and gloom around the club.

It was the perfect start for the 45-year-old on his return to the club overseeing United first five-goal haul in the league since Sir Alex Ferguson’s final game in charge at West Brom in 2013.

But Parlour believes the players were partly to blame for their previous form and that they now owe an apology to their supporters.

The Arsenal legend was asked if  Saturday’s win proves the United players were plotting to push Mourinho out of the club.

Parlour told talkSPORT: “Oh absolutely, without a doubt.

“They did exactly the same at Chelsea.

“The players have let the supporters down, really.

“You don’t always like your manager but you put a performance in for personal pride, plus the supporters who are the main people you’re playing for.”

Marcus Rashford opened the scoring for United, Ander Herrera doubled their lead with Anthony Martial restoring their two-goal advantage after Victor Camarasa gave the home side hope converting a penalty.

Jesse Lingard made the game safe from the penalty spot after he was brought down just after the break.

The England international got his second and United’s fifth in injury time to make it a memorable return to the club for Solskjaer.
