Jose Mourinho has hit out at “football Einsteins” who he claims have tried to dismiss his career triumphs and Manchester United’s history during a difficult week for the club.
“We had a bad week. I know that some football Einsteins – football is full of Einsteins – they try to delete 16 years of my career, to delete an unbelievable history of Man United and focus on a bad week. But that’s the new football. It’s full of Einsteins, ” noted the former Chelsea manager
United defeated Northampton Town 1-3 on Wednesday to progress on to the fourth round of the EFL Cup and end a run of three consecutive defeats against Manchester City, Feyenoord and Watford.
Northampton equalised after a Michael Carrick’s opener thanks to Alex Revell’s penalty just before half-time on Wednesday, but Ander Herrera and Marcus Rashford fired back to seal the victory for United in the second half at Sixfields Stadium.
Manchester United will now face city rivals, Manchester City, at Old Trafford on 26th October in the fourth round of the EFL Cup.
