Chelsea legend warns Jose Mourinho over Man United style
Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink warns Jose Mourinho that Manchester United fans want to win in style
Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has warned Jose Mourinho that Manchester United supporters demand their team win in style.
The Red Devils boss has endured a tough start to his Old Trafford reign after he was appointed as Louis van Gaal’s successor in May.
The 20-time English made a promising start to the 2016-17 season after racking up victories over Bournemouth, Southampton and Hull City.
However, the Red Devils have won just two of their last 11 Premier League games to leave Mourinho’s men 13 points adrift of leaders Chelsea.
The Manchester United manager has bemoaned his side’s poor luck in recent weeks after good performances in 1-1 draws with Arsenal, West Ham and Everton.
But former Chelsea striker Hasselbaink warned Mourinho that simply churning out victories won’t satisfy the Manchester United supporters.
“It’s Manchester United. You have to win in style. You can’t just win,” Hasselbaink told Sky Sports News HQ.
“Jose Mourinho is just looking to win and then make the style better. The winning at the moment is almost there. I don’t think he is far off.”
The Red Devils will host top-four rivals Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
Manchester United are nine points adrift of fourth-placed Manchester City in the race to secure a place in the Champions League next term.
