Seville, Feb 22: After sustaining a 0-0 draw against Sevilla FC in the Champions League, Manchester United chief coach Jose Mourinho on Thursday defended his club for their playing tactics.
Manchester United star goalkeeper David de Gea pulled out a brilliant performance for his club on Wednesday to keep them at par with Sevilla FC in the first leg.
“I think you are all, or many of you, are in a new sport! In England, some guys say the wingers shouldn’t defend,” Mourinho was quoted as saying by Sky Sports after the game.
“The next time I see David Beckham I’m going to ask him: ‘David, when you were playing right wing at Manchester United, when the opposition left-back attacked, do you stay looking at the stands? Or do you come back with the guy?’ I’m going to ask David that.
“And everybody knows that I’m not big friends with Roy Keane or Paul Scholes, but I will ask them: ‘When your team lost the ball, did you drop back? Or did you stay walking on the pitch?,” the Portuguese tactician added. IANS
