Chelsea Manager Jose Mourinho has spoken in defence of Sir Alex Ferguson following reaction of some Manchester United fans after Tuesday’s loss to city rivals Manchester City, with some fans yelling at the former manager.
Mourinho said he cannot comprehend why some supporters would blame
Ferguson for the club’s struggles this season.
“Lots of people are speaking about Sir Alex. He made Man United what Man United are,” he said.
“He decided to retire. When somebody decides to retire, especially a person like him, he deserves to retire. He deserves to enjoy his life.
“And now he’s responsible for what? Man United lose a match, it’s his responsibility? Man United struggling in the Premier League is his problem?
“Wayne Rooney misses a goal, it’s his fault? Or David de Gea makes a mistake and it’s his fault?
“He can only be blamed for one thing: Man United being the club Man United are. He’s retired. Let him retire in peace,” Mourinho said.
