Manchester United was eliminated by Seville on Tuesday evening in the 8th Champions League finals (1-2). The English superpower played a moderate competition for its own audience and in the final stage finally got the lid on the nose, by two goals of Wissam Ben Yedder. Clubicons Rio Ferdinand and Paul Scholes don’t have a good word for the team of José Mourinho.
Ferdinand hadn’t seen the defeat come, after Manchester United had won last weekend in the Premier League with 2-1 from Liverpool. The players were nervous. You have to grab such a game at the neck skin,”says the former defender at BT Sport. Ferdinand is supplemented by Scholes:”There was no inspiration, no energy, no speed. It is inexplicable.
In Ferdinand’s opinion, Manchester United made an unrecognizable and, above all, fearful impression:”It seemed like a couple of strangers had been thrown together”, he continues:”The mentality was wrong. If you’re playing at home, it’s up to you to attack. The team started out defensive and made the impression that they couldn’t do it. Alexis Sánchez was not a shadow of the player he has ever been.
“They approach each match in a conservative way,”Scholes is critical. The former midfielder of the Red Devils relative to the victory booked last Saturday at Liverpool,”Even then, football wasn’t great. They came away with it, because they won, but many performances are exactly the same, but are pushed under the carpet because they won it.
Manchester United is better without José Mourinho
