It's no exaggeration that Manchester United and Jose Mourinho's current situation seems to be worsening with every passing day.
Zero wins in four games, player-manager bust-ups in training and reports of a 'rebel group' at the club have seen Mourinho's future plunge into doubt.
Players like Paul Pogba, Alexis Sanchez, Anthony Martial and Eric Bailly are all said to be frustrated with the Portuguese's ways. Luke Shaw and Andreas Pereira also aren't happy.
Bookmakers now have Mourinho as one of the favourites to be the first Premier League manager to be sacked this season, but Paul Scholes hopes that doesn't happen.
Despite accusing Mourinho of "embarrassing the club" recently, Scholes wants him to stay and just start appreciating what he has got at United rather than what he hasn't got.
"Yes I do [want him to stay]," said the 43-year-old. "The only thing I didn't like - I'm sick of him moaning about what he hasn't got.
"I think he really should be concentrating on what he has got. I think he's got some real quality in the squad who are very low in confidence.
MOURINHO RUNNING OUT OF TIME
"Jose over the years has been a brilliant coach, his record suggests that, he's been one of the very best. I think now, I'd like to see him stay.
"Take this - which I think is probably the biggest challenge of his career - and show us what a good coach he is."
If Mourinho is going to turn things around at United he needs to act fast amid growing discontent in the United squad.
And what makes things harder now is that even David de Gea, United's best player, is at the end of his tether with his manager.
According to The Sun, De Gea is frustrated with the bad press surrounding United that Mourinho has caused recently.
Another name has been added to the list of players unhappy with Mourinho and it seems like only a matter of time before something or someone cracks.
Mourinho could end up being the one to go, but it's a wonder who exactly could replace him with most of the world's best managers currently employed.
Zinedine Zidane is one option, but the Frenchman only left Real Madrid in May so it all depends on whether he's ready to return to the spotlight.
