Robbie Savage claims Man United get unfairly criticised under Jose Mourinho
The Leicester legend believes Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho gets subjected to unfair criticism
Robbie Savage has claimed that Manchester United manager Jose Mourino gets unfairly criticised.
The Red Devils remain on course to finish in second place in the second season under the Portuguese head coach.
Mourinho’s side are three points ahead of Liverpool FC but 16 points adrift of Premier League leaders Manchester City.
Manchester United can finish the season with silverware if the Red Devils manage to beat Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final next month.
The 20-time English champions were 2-1 winners against Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup last four at Wembley last weekend.
Mourinho has often been criticised for Manchester United’s unattractive style of play since he took over the reins from Louis van Gaal.
Former Leicester star Savage has leaped to the defence of Manchester United boss Mourinho.
“Man United get harshly criticised because they’re Man United and one of the biggest clubs in the world,” Savage told BBC Sport.
“They are second in the league and they are in the FA Cup final yet people still criticise Mourinho.”
The Red Devils won the Europa League and the League Cup in their first season under the management of the ex-Chelsea FC boss.
Manchester United suffered a 2-1 loss to La Liga giants Sevilla in the Champions League round of 16 this term.
