Former Man United boss slams Mourinho and claims he won’t last long at Old Trafford

Former Manchester United manager Tommy Docherty has slammed current boss Jose Mourinho and claimed that the Old Trafford hierarchy will soon tire of the Portuguese coaches antics.

Docherty managed United between 1972-77 and won the FA Cup in his final season at the club. He like many Red Devils fans are unhappy with how Mourinho conducts himself.

Docherty even admitted that he does not even watch his former club much any more, due to their stodgy performances under the former Chelsea coach.

He revealed that he actually prefers watching their arch rivals Man City due to the attacking brand of football Pep Guardiola has brought to the Etihad.

Docherty was however sacked by United due to the fact he had an affair with the club’s physio’s wife, so his talk of disapproving of another managers antics is a little ironic to say the least:

“If he was made of chocolate he would eat himself,” Docherty told BBC Radio.

“You can’t argue with his record but I think he goes over the score with his criticism of players. He has bought those players and then he is criticising them afterwards.

“I would be amazed if he lasts any length of time at Manchester United. I don’t think the board will put up with his antics.

“I don’t watch them a lot because I watch Manchester City a lot – because they are great to watch. They play football the way I like to play it.”
