'Manchester United Much More Boring Under Jose Mourinho Than Me!'

A former Manchester United manager has claimed that the Red Devils are playing "far more boring football" under Jose Mourinho than when he was in charge.

The Old Trafford club find themselves 11 points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City after their 2-1 derby defeat on Sunday.

Former Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal, who was replaced by the Portuguese tactician at United, has taken a swipe at the English club, saying they are playing more negatively now than when he was managing the team.

"If you ask me how did I do at United, I will say it was my best year ever, given the circumstances I was working under," Van Gaal told Fox Sports Netherlands.

"We played football that was quite alright. But it's not football that is appreciated in England.

"And yet, right now, looking at United, I have to conclude Mourinho is not being criticised while it's far more boring football.

"What United produce now is defensive football. I always played attacking football. The proof is that the opposition were always parking the bus.

"They don't do that now because Jose Mourinho plays so defensive."

Van Gaal lasted two seasons at the Red Devils, and managed to lift the FA Cup in the 2015/16 campaign.
