Jose Mourinho has been criticised by former Liverpool player turned pundit Steve McManaman – but Manchester United fans think his opinion may be slightly flawed.
McManaman was speaking after United’s crucial win over Tottenham Hotspur , preferring to focus on Mourinho’s playing style compared with some of the other managers in the league.
“I have an issue with the way he’s managing Manchester United. If he was managing Liverpool and playing the same way, I wouldn’t be happy” he said on BT Sport.
“I want to be entertained, and I’m not being entertained (by Mourinho’s tactics).”
But McManaman, who came through the youth ranks at Liverpool and represented the senior side for nine years, was mocked by United fans for seeming to forget that Jurgen Klopp ’s Liverpool are sitting in sixth place in the Premier League .
And Liverpool have seven fewer points than United after scoring six fewer goals.
While Liverpool conceded four goals to Spurs only a week ago.
Mourinho has proven record at winning trophies.
There were accusations of bias after the segment.
McManaman’s punditry credentials were questioned.
Klopp’s type of football has Liverpool sixth.
Many fans tried to brush it off.
Rather be in United’s position than Klopp’s.
The choice is simple.
