    Mourinho ridicules Solskjaer, Man Utd after Champions League rout at Barcelona

    Previous Manchester United supervisor, Jose Mourinho, has said current chief, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer got his strategies wrong, amid their 3-0 thrashing to Barcelona at the Camp Nou prior this week.

    The Red Devils were trailing 1-0 from the primary leg, yet lost 3-0 to Nou Camp, because of Lionel Messi's prop and Philippe Coutinho's objective.

    Mourinho trusts that Solskjaer's choice to assault Barcelona cost United beyond a reasonable doubt, as they surrendered space in midfield for Messi to misuse.

    "I think the United methodology was unique.

    "In the principal leg they endeavored to possess that focal zone. Messi's position is straightforward yet it is difficult to make a 'confine' to control him. He originates from the right, at that point remains in the center, at that point Rakitic goes right and enables him to remain in the center. It's extremely troublesome.

    "Manchester United in the primary match zonally they involved that zone great. When he came into within he was discovering Fred, he was discovering McTominay going to within constantly.

    "In any case, I think in this match in light of the fact that United were losing 1-0 they endeavored to begin with an alternate point of view.

    "Presently it was Pogba wide left, McTominay considerably more on the privilege and Jesse Lingard beginning as a 10 behind the strikers. Before the cautious line was just Fred. That is the territory that Messi comes to kick it into high gear the ball and when Messi has the ball..one, one, one… you are dead.

    "That is the reason I never enjoyed individual man-on-man against Messi. Messi's an enclosure, you need to make a pen. Barcelona will be Barcelona, they have preferable players over Manchester United. I believe it's ordinary they won," Mourinho disclosed to Russia Today.
