Jose Mourinho and his Tactics at the Theatre of Dreams

Manchester United were knocked out of UEFA Champions League after a shocking defeat ended with 1-2 against Spanish side Sevilla has put Jose Mourinho under lot of criticism. Jose Mourinho is known as ‘special one’ but he was not special in one of the worst nights at Old Trafford when he started with Fellaini who came back after an injury. The fans, Manchester United legends the whole football world and even Sir Alex Ferguson were shocked about Jose’s strategy. How can you play Fellaini when you have your best players on the bench?

Although Paul Pogba is a huge talent but he looked out of touch and was unable to give his best. His passing was horrendous. Many big names flopped and one of them is Alexis Sanchez and even Rio Ferdinand added comments about him saying” He looks the shadow of Alexis Sanchez who was at Arsenal, he looks a stranger in his own team”.

Many fans out Of Old Trafford were angry and gave their opinion like “Losing after so much fight does not matter but losing to a side who have no big names like Manchester United had is awful” some fans said ” We were shouting attack come on attack but our team was so defensive”‘ some said ” We are fed up with Jose’s defensive tactics”.

This is true that playing defensive is not the Manchester United’s legacy but none of the coach after Alex Ferguson could carry on this legacy.

Now it would be so interesting to watch whether Manchester United’s board and officials go with the same tactics or they will think about their new coach and players.
