Man United boss Jose Mourinho likened to faded 70’s pop star

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been likened to a faded 70’s pop star, by the former Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo.

Mourinho’s former rival slammed the Portuguese tactician while on Sky Italia.

Manchester United have got off to a disappointing start to the season despite spending big during the summer transfer window.

The Portuguese tactician has seen better days according to his former friend and rival Leonardo.

“I think they misread the transfer market. They have spent too much and harvested little so far,” Leonardo told Sky Italia.

“It was best to divide all that money to build the best team. The best buy was the central defender [Bailly].

“There is a bit of Mourinho in this. He’s a bit like [Lucio] Dalla, who after good songs in the ‘70s never quite repeated that success”

United have won just two games out of their last seven and find themselves in eight place in the Premier League with 15 points after ten games.

The Red Devils are also struggling in Europe and suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Fenerbahce yesterday evening.

According to the Mirror, Mourinho spent over £140million on Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba, Eric Bailly and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.


The Red Devils take on Swansea City this weekend in the Premier League as they look to return to winning ways.
