Former Manchester United manager, Louis van Gaal believes that the club is way more boring under Jose Mourinho.
Manchester United lost 2-1 to City last weekend, dropping 11 points behind Guardiola’s men.
Mourinho was accused of employing defensive tactics and Van Gaal who was often criticised for dull football, insists Mourinho’s team is worse.
Speaking to Fox Sports Netherlands, Van Gaal said: “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.
“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 criticized 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.”
