Man United boss Mourinho speaks about Manchester City's huge lead

Man United boss Mourinho speaks about Manchester City's huge lead

Rio Ferdinand accused Manchester United of "lacking professionalism" as they slumped to a 1-0 loss at Basel in the Champions League.

Cantona said attacking football was part of United's tradition and urged boss Mourinho to remove the handbrake.

"This philosophy of the game at United is very strong and that is why it can be hard to understand, but I love Mourinho and he will win things, which is very important".

"I prefer when it's more fancy and more creative, of course".

"I play under one of the biggest, most successful managers in Jose, and he's only going to pick the best players".

Mourinho won two trophies in his first season at Old Trafford after taking over from Louis van Gaal in 2016.

Despite the debate over Mourinho's style, Cantona, who won four titles between 1992 and 1997, stressed: "I really love Mourinho".

"Until the global board change the rules I can only play 11". They are ninth in the table, a good team, hard to beat, they don't concede many goals, they have a mix of physicality, aggression, quality and creativity and I think Chris Hughton is doing a great job. If Barcelona play in a defensive way, nobody would understand.

Mourinho noted that the amount of games over the next week or so is key and could well change the complexion of the table - and that United need to win their games before they start thinking about any of the other sides, including Manchester City.
