Man United 'far more boring' under Mourinho, says LVG

Man United 'far more boring' under Mourinho, says LVG

Under Mourinho, United slipped even further last season, finishing sixth, but thanks to their Europa League triumph they sealed a Champions League spot, and this season they are in second, albeit 11 points behind Manchester City after Sunday's defeat to their local rivals.

Speaking to Fox Sports in Holland, Van Gaal has said: "If you ask me how did I do at United, I will say it was my best year ever, given the circumstances I was working under".

'I always played attacking football. 'But it's not football that is appreciated in England.

"I would rather watch City play than United", Van Gaal was quoted as saying.

I think Jose has done a very good job over the last 18 months but his biggest problem is the way City are playing.

The bruising derby defeat to City at the weekend had observers questioning the progress of Manchester United under Jose Mourinho.

"Park the bus, park the bus, Man United".

Croatian wide-man Perisic was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford during the summer, with Jose Mourinho having openly admitted that he was keen to add another winger to his side's ranks.

The Dutchman admits he still bears a grudge towards United chief executive Ed Woodward over the manner of his dismissal.

According to reports, Asensio is ready to quit the club after Zinedine Zidane has doubts over his potential to be a world beater in near future.

'I can understand that and they should have approached me. "My wife had to find out [about my sacking] when she was in the lift with Woodward's family".

'They said something like: 'This is going to be awkward for Ed.' My wife had sussed them out ages ago. "I'd rather see that than hugs and cuddles going on in the tunnel". And while the former Barcelona manager won the 2015-16 FA Cup, while in charge of the Red Devils, his happiness was short-lived as he was sacked just 24 hours after winning the FA Cup.

I don't agree with the fact that Mourinho plays boring football.

Despite that, one player, in particular, seems adamant to kiss his days with the Premier League giants a fond goodbye and is all but set to leave the club.
