Gary Lineker delivers verdict on Jose Mourinho and Man United

The former Tottenham striker delivers his verdict on Manchester United's tactics under Jose Mourinho

Gary Lineker poked fun at Jose Mourinho’s critics after Manchester United’s 4-1 victory over Fenerbahce on Thursday night.

The Red Devils eased to an emphatic Europa League win thanks to Paul Pogba’s double and goals from Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard.

Former United striker Robin van Persie scored a second-half consolation for the Turkish side upon his return to Old Trafford.

Mourinho’s side played out a dour goalless draw with bitter rivals Liverpool at Anfield in the Premier League on Monday night.

United failed to register a shot on target and finished with just 35 per cent of possession following a negative approach to the Premier League clash.

However, former Tottenham striker Lineker highlighted that Mourinho is able to throw off the shackles following United’s dominant win against Fenerbahce on Thursday night.

United will make the trip to Jose Mourinho’s former club Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening.
