Frank Lampard replies when asked if Man United manager Jose Mourinho can get angry
The Chelsea legend reveals that Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is capable of losing his cool
Frank Lampard has revealed that Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is more than capable of losing his cool with his players.
The Red Devils have made a promising start to the Premier League season after Manchester United won three of their opening four games in the title race.
Mourinho’s side saw their 100 per cent unbeaten record come to an end after Manchester United drew 2-2 with Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium last weekend.
The Red Devils eased to a comfortable 3-0 win against Swiss champions Basel in their opening Champions League group-stage game at Old Trafford thanks to goals from Marouane Fellaini, Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford.
However, Mourinho was critical of Manchester United’s “Playstation football” at 2-0 up against the Swiss side before the Red Devils put the Champions League clash to bed thanks to Rashford’s goal.
Lampard worked with Mourinho during the Portuguese coach’s two spells in charge of Chelsea and won two Premier League titles, the FA Cup and the League Cup.
And the former Chelsea midfielder admitted that Mourinho does have the ability to get angry with his players if they aren’t matching his high standards.
“He definitely can [get angry],” Lampard told BT Sport on Tuesday night.
“I haven’t seen that many hairdryer moments as such but he will certainly let you know when you drop below the standards. He will say what has to be said.”
Manchester United are sitting at the top of the Premier League table ahead of Manchester City on goal difference.
