United manager, Jose Mourinho can’t stop talking about the Blues, their fans and everything about Chelsea as the Red Devil’s boss decided to throw shade at the London team after his side lost heavily to Liverpool during the international Champions Cup on Saturday.
During his press conference after the game against Liverpool, Mourinho, noted that Chelsea fans prefer to have a fun filled day at the beach than spend money on tickets to watch the game between Chelsea and Inter Milan.
Obviously unhappy with the heavy lose against Liverpool, Mourinho said;
“If I was them (Manchester United and Liverpool fans) I wouldn’t have come. I won’t spend my money to see these teams. I wouldn’t spend my money. For example, I was watching in Television today, was Chelsea against Inter Milan, the people in this state decides beach is better than this and they go to the beach. They didn’t go to the game, the stadium was empty.”
Mourinho side lost to Liverpool after Daniel Sturridge scored with his first touch off the bench and Xherdan Shaqiri struck a stunning overhead kick in a 4-1 International Champions Cup game.
Sadio Mane hit the winner from the penalty spot as Liverpool beat Manchester City 2-1 last time out and the Senegal star was on target from 12 yards again to open the scoring after Mohamed Salah was fouled.
United soon hit back though, with Andreas Pereira continuing his impressive pre-season form by curling in a sensational 25-yard free-kick to level within three minutes.
Although Jurgen Klopp made a series of substitutions, Liverpool continued to play the better football and they edged ahead in the 66th minute thanks to two of their decisive changes, Shaqiri setting up Sturridge to make an immediate impact.
And Liverpool’s second ICC win out of three was completed when Ojo stepped up to convert another penalty, Andrew Robertson having been clipped by Ander Herrera, Shaqiri then wrapping up the scoring in sensational style with a bicycle kick from 12 yards.
Mourinho as usual cried out reasons why his side lost out on Saturday, saying;
“We are not playing here to improve the team or to improve our dynamic. We are playing here just to try to survive, to have not very ugly result and Alexis is the only attacking player that we have. He’s the only one, we don’t have wingers, we don’t have strikers, he’s the only one that is here and the poor man is there trying his best,” he said.
