Jose Mourinho Takes Aim At Pundits With Short Management Stints

Jose Mourinho Takes Aim At Pundits With Short Management Stints

For Jose Mourinho, when it comes to football management, it is quite simple: "You have it, or you don't have it."

As far as he is concerned, in England, there are some players turned pundits who are brilliant when it comes to 'in front of the screen' but weren't right for coaching. The former Man United manager told RT that this is common in the Premier League.

We have in England former top players, amazing in front of the screen, they go to football clubs and after two months, goodbye, let's go home because it isn't right for us.

"So there are things, you have it, or you don't have it."

While he doesn't cite anyone by name, there are a few high-profile Mourinho critics who recently endured a short spell in management. Paul Scholes famously slammed the Portuguese boss last October: "his mouth is out of control and he is embarrassing the club."

The former Man United midfielder recently left his role as Oldham Athletic manager after just one month in the job.
