Mourinho has been moaning about the Manchester United’s busy fixture list and Roy Keane cannot take it anymore.
United played Chelsea on Monday and Rostov on Thursday as they travel to the Riverside Stadium on Sunday to play Middlesbrough. Mourinho cited this fixture congestion as a testament that his club Manchester United has “many enemies”.
Former skipper during the Ferguson era launched a blistering attack on Mourinho while speaking with ITV
“It’s just utter nonsense what he’s talking about. He’s manager of Manchester United, one of the biggest clubs on the planet. The squad he’s got… and he keeps moaning about fixtures and fatigue.”
Roy Keane labelled Mourinho’s complains as “Utter Nonsense”. He also explained how the Red Devils have had an easy ride in the cup competition.
“We were just looking at some of the cup draws they’ve had. They’ve had an easy ride in the cups; some good draws and a lot of home draws. The guy’s talking absolute nonsense. I’ve never heard so much rubbish in my life.”
The Republic of Ireland assistant manager also questioned whether the Portuguese is up for the job.
“Maybe the club’s too big for him. He can’t deal with all these demands at the match. What matches? Man United reserves could have won that game tonight. I’m sick to death of him.”
Roy Keane and Jose Mourinho have had their fair share of altercations in the past. Mourinho offered a premature handshake but he was snubbed by Keano and Paul Lambert during his time at Chelsea. Chelsea were cruising 3-0 at Stamford Bridge against Aston Villa while Mourinho decided to walk down the tunnel before full time whistle. Lambert refused the handshake and pointed to his watch reminding the Special One that there was still time left for the match to draw curtains.
