Mourinho being jealous about chelsea's new ‘defensive’ 3-4-3

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.”
