John Giles believes the relationship between Jose Mourinho and Manchester United could unravel to a point of no return by the end of the season.

The Leeds United and Ireland legend joined us as always on a Thursday and he has a pessimistic view of the United manager's future at the club. 

"I think they could part ways before the end of the season," he said.

"I can't see it being fixed. I just can't see it. I think he's fallen out with too many players." 

John also feels Mourinho shouldn't be picking Paul Pogba ever again if he did indeed call the Frenchman a "virus" in the dressing room in front of his team-mates.

"If you tell somebody in the dressing room in front of all the player that he's a virus to the rest of the players, that man should never play for the club again," said John.

He also discussed his own experience of painkiller use during his career in the 1960s and 1970s which we have discussed with the likes of Brian O'Driscoll and former inter-county GAA players this week.

"There was always pressure, in the old days particularly where the medical team didn't come into it as much as they do today," he said of the attitude which saw players put under pressure to play.

"It would be down to the manager. I've known a good few players who played with injuries with injections and they finished their careers early." 

He also revealed why he never wore shin pads during his career.
