Jose Mourinho could be a perfect candidate for the Sarcasm of the Year award.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has blamed their Premier League rivals Liverpool for parking the bus when the two sides faced each other on Monday. Many fans and analysts had criticized the former Chelsea manager for using defensive tactics against the Reds as the two sides settled for a goalless draw at Anfield.

However, after being analysed and criticized widely for his defensive tactis, the outspoken manager delivered a sarcastic response to his critics. He explained that the media was being unfair to Klopp’s men, who had a more defensive approach to the game than the visitors.

He insisited that the Merseyside club also deserved credit for their defensive tactics. Speaking during a pre-match press conference ahead of their Europa League tie with Turkish giants Fenerbahce, Mou said:

“I think you (the media) are very fair with Liverpool because Liverpool had a fantastic defensive performance,” said Mourinho, clearly with a hint of sarcasm in his response.

“For the first time they played with two defensive midfielders. For the first time they played with (Jordan) Henderson and (Emre) Can together.

“For the first time, they took a striker off to play another midfield player and you are very unfair with them. The 0-0 result was because two teams were really good defensively.

“We didn’t get the result we wanted. We wanted to win and we only got a point so we were not 100% successful.”
