Pundit thinks Manchester United fans will not put up with Mourinho’s tactics

There is nothing really for anyone connected with Manchester United to complain about with regards to results.

The Red Devils are unbeaten in 12 games in all competitions, their most recent result being a 1-0 win over Benfica in the Champions League.

As it stands, the club sit second in the Premier League table, two points adrift of neighbours Manchester City.

However, manager Jose Mourinho faced criticism last week for his tactics against Liverpool, with many accusing the Portuguese coach of making the goalless draw a drab affair at Anfield.

The former Chelsea boss has a reputation for ‘parking the bus’ in order to avoid defeat or sneak a 1-0 win, and former Liverpool forward Craig Bellamy thinks that the manager’s approach could cause problems with the Old Trafford faithful.

United are historically known for their attacking flair, which Bellamy thinks is being stifled with Mourinho in charge.

While on Sky Sports’ The Debate show, the Welshman said:

“Manchester United are more than titles. As a football club they have an identity that’s worth more than a title. As a club they have a certain way of playing and as a club they’ve let that go for the time being.

“Sir Bobby Charlton said it through the years that Mourinho isn’t a Man United type of manager. At the moment, for their desperation to win trophies, to get back to the top, they will bring him in and they will let it go for now, but there will only be a period Manchester United supporters and Manchester United as a football club will allow this to happen for.”
