Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is continuing to take body blows from pundits after the finish of the Premier League season.
Yesterday, Gary Neville refused to see United’s campaign as anything other than a disappointment, and now Paul Merson has got involved.
The Sky Sports pundit went on quite the rant about Mourinho and the lack of excitement surrounding the club while Manchester City cruised to the title.
“Their neighbours are breaking all these records, playing the way they are, and then there are 70,000 people turning up at United every week sitting there and thinking: ‘What’s in the programme?’
“It has not been entertaining, and it has been The Mourinho Way. Mourinho has done this at Chelsea.
“I watched them play against a second-string Huddersfield team, 2-0 up. I was thinking: ‘Go and score, five, six, seven.’
“The way it looked to me at the start of the season, is that Mourinho was playing to draw with all the big boys and beat all of the lesser teams.
“They parked the bus at Liverpool, drew with them, then went to Huddersfield and lost. That’s it, behind the eight ball, and it was catch-up from them.
“City just went further away. The way they lost at Old Trafford against City, they just parked the bus. It was like they were saying: ‘We can’t win.'”
Pretty damning stuff. Le Buzz very much doubts Mourinho will care, but still damning.
