Jose Mourinho told Man United aren’t good enough to compete with title rivals
Graeme Souness makes a blunt admission about Manchester United under Jose Mourinho
Graeme Souness believes Manchester United aren’t good enough to adopt an attacking approach when taking on their Premier League title rivals.
The Red Devils came under criticism for perceived negative tactics in a goalless draw with Liverpool at Anfield at the start of October.
Jose Mourinho’s side showed little attacking adventure despite Liverpool’s defence conceding 16 times in six games ahead of the visit of Manchester United.
The 20-time English champions lost 2-1 to promoted side Huddersfield Town to see their unbeaten run come to an end.
Manchester United limped to a 1-0 victory over title rivals Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford but Mourinho’s men were criticised again for a poor attacking performance.
With Manchester City five points clear at the top of the table heading into the last round of fixtures, the Manchester United boss opted to employ a more offensive approach at Stamford Bridge.
But the Red Devils rarely troubled Thibaut Courtois’ goal as Alvaro Morata scored a 55th-minute header to seal three points for the defending champions.
Former Liverpool midfielder Souness believes Manchester United aren’t good enough to take on their title rivals at full tilt.
“Man United are not good enough yet,” Souness told Sky Sports. “They don’t have the team to take on big teams. They have to go about their business a certain way.”
Manchester United are in second place in the Premier League table but eight points behind Manchester City.
