Manchester United 'more boring ' under Jose Mourinho, says Louis van Gaal

He is yet to start a League game for Real Madrid in last 1-2 months and given Barcelona's relentless form this season, Zidane has not been allowed to rotate too much with his squad thus explaining the lack of game-time for Asensio. Whatever Manchester United's current woes, and Van Gaal is probably right to say they are overreliant on "defensive football" at times, they are nowhere near as dirge-like as his own United side.

"The thing with the fracas is that I'd actually rather have seen it out on the pitch and something should have been done when City were doing the "oles" in the corner", former United defender Neville told Sky Sports News.

Under Mourinho, United slipped even further last season, finishing sixth, but thanks to their Europa League triumph they sealed a Champions League spot, and this season they are in second, albeit 11 points behind Manchester City after Sunday's defeat to their local rivals. The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager was released days after he helped United win the FA Cup in 2016. The proof is that the opposition was always parking the bus.

Manchester United return to Premier League action on Wednesday night when they host Bournemouth at Old Trafford.

Players and staff from both sides clashed in the tunnel after the game when United boss Jose Mourinho began arguing with City goalkeeper Ederson regarding the visitors' over-exuberant celebrations.

Tigers will trade Ian Kinsler to Angels
Kinsler has spent the last four years with the Tigers and hit.236, with a.313 OBP, 22 home runs, and 52 RBI last season. According to Fangraphs , Kinsler was worth 2.4 Wins Above Replacement last season, down from 5.7 the year before.

"What United produce now is defensive football", he said.

"He is not an very bad man".

But Mourinho sat down with the ex-Everton ace to try and convince him to stay at Old Trafford. In fact, I think he is a sympathetic guy. But he can not say the same for United's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.

He said: He (Woodward) never discussed anything with me - and you can talk about anything with me.

According to reports, Asensio is ready to quit the club after Zinedine Zidane has doubts over his potential to be a world beater in near future. "My wife had to find out [about my sacking] when she was in the lift with Woodward's family". They said something like, "This is going to be awkward for Ed".
