Mourinho Slams Stars As Man City Claim The Title

Manchester derby

Quickly after United" s defeat on Sunday, the Metropolis web site tweeted: "Our Time.

United, sensing the impact of the result, threw everything forward but West Brom displayed some new-found defensive fortitude and held on for a famous victory. Sir Alex Ferguson was blessed with a strong squad capable of challenging on multiple fronts and their performances were characterised by thrilling comebacks and dramatic late goals.

But Ryan Giggs, who won 13 titles with Manchester United, believes City need to maintain their dominance for several seasons to join the all-time greats.

They eventually got the job done this weekend, though, as a scintillating 3-1 win at Tottenham on Saturday put the champagne on ice and the corks were popped less than 24 hours later when Manchester United surprisingly lost at home to West Brom on Sunday.

United's insipid half was then summed up when Paul Pogba received a yellow card for inexplicably trying to convert a deep cross with his hand.

Ian Rush and Roger Hunt were the others with Rush's single season record of 47 goals now well within reach for the prolific Egyptian.

City manager Pep Guardiola might have rubbed his eyes in disbelief at events at Old Trafford when he returned from his round of golf with his son.

Mourinho isn't known for mincing his words. His vast experience coupled with his ability to lead the defensive charge makes him one of the most sought-after centre-backs in the Premier League.

We're champions now and thank you to all of you, It's an incredible season.

United fans are going to be deeply unhappy with what has happened. After Rafael and Ji-Sung Park were picked in a makeshift midfield ahead of him Paul Pogba made a decision to leave United.

United are undeniably making progress under Mourinho but fans fear City may dominate the league for years to come. The Blues were built on a strong defence - conceding just 15 times in the campaign - but they also scored 72 times and were arguably the most attractive team Mourinho has ever managed.

"We always gave them the opportunity to be solid and compact".

"I think to compare them to ourselves, Arsenal and Chelsea, you have to win multiple titles".

If Mourinho does leave, hopefully, the board will appoint a coach who will promote an attacking style of football.

Since leaving Manchester United in the summer of 2015, Jonny Evans has transformed into a reliable option in the defensive department and he has built a formidable defensive partnership with Ahmed Hegazy this season, which reflects his leadership qualities in the defensive third of the pitch.
