Mourinho take swipe on Chelsea

Manchester United boss , Jose Mourinho, has taken a
thinly – veiled swipe at his replacement at Chelsea ,
Antonio Conte.
Mourinho suggested that the Blues were praised for
winning with a defensive style, while his United team
were not praised enough for trying to attack.
“ When my teams are playing pragmatic football and
winning matches and winning titles you say that is not
nice and not right ,” he said after the 1- 1 draw with
Everton .
“ Then my team play very well – and is a huge change
to the last two or three years [ at Man United] – now
you say what matters is to get the result no matter
what.
“ In this moment we have teams getting results that
defend with 11, kick ball and attack the space on the
counter – attack … it is phenomenal, it’ s beautiful . You
have to make a decision. ”
Mourinho also explained why he brought on Marouane
Fellaini in the second half of the game at Goodison
Park. The Belgian gave away a late penalty , that saw
Everton equalize through Leighton Baines .
When asked about the substitution, he responded : “ I
thought you would know more about football than you
do, the answer is obvious .
“ Everton is not a passing team any more like they were
in the past . Everton is a team that plays direct:
goalkeeper direct, Ashley Williams direct, Funes Mori
direct. Everything direct.
“ When you have on the bench a player with two metres
[ in height ] you play the player in front of the defensive
line to help the team to win the match . ”
