Eamon Dunphy Launches Fiery Attack On "Diva" Jose Mourinho

Eamon Dunphy Launches Fiery Attack On "Diva" Jose Mourinho

Between the pair of them, Eamon Dunphy and John Giles are determined to challenge the Premier League's top managers right to the bitter end.

With Giles taking every available opportunity to target Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp for his latest foible, Dunphy has his eye more firmly set on Manchester United's Jose Mourinho.

Process is never truly an acceptable state of being for Dunphy. Guardiola, sitting atop of the Premier League with Manchester City is safe. The rest are all paddling desperately against the tide of Dunphy's ire.

If you're not winning, you're losing - there is no middle ground.

Speaking on 2FM's Games On, Dunphy labelled Mourinho a "diva," questioning the level of respect that is now afforded to the Champions League winner with Porto and Inter Milan:

I think he is tiresome now.

He's not a likeable character and he is not the type of person you could respect.

Suggesting that Mourinho, in comparison to Chelsea's Antonio Conte, is not a "proper man," Dunphy's criticism of the United manager is nothing new.

Doubting the Portuguese's ability to render the kind of control he would like at Manchester United, the infamous pundit believes that Mourinho is not "doing a great job at Old Trafford."

A fair point perhaps given the manner in which United currently lag behind their city rivals, Dunphy believes Mourinho is set to jump ship, sooner rather than later:

He'll be in Paris. They were made for each other. He was never a fit for United. United were never a fit for him.

Referring to the rumours that Paris St. Germain see Mourinho as an ideal replacement for the underwhelming Unai Emery, Dunphy has ultimately concluded that "Mourinho is passed his sell-by-date."
