Former Chelsea and Manchester United boss Tommy Docherty who has been a great critic of Jose Mourinho say “if he were made of chocolate he would eat himself.”
Mourinho who has been under criticism following Manchester United poor run of form losing points at stoppage time has now led the Red Devil to couple of good run in their last three games and another 2-0 thrashing of stubborn West Ham on Monday evening
However, the former boss who led Manchester United to FA glory in 1977 during his short spell with United, seems not to be too convinced by Mourinho
“He’s done okay, but if he were made of chocolate he would eat himself,” the 88-year-old told the Evening Times.
“And look at the money he’s spent.
“Fergie sold [Paul] Pogba for about a million quid and they then paid about 900 million [sic] to get him back. That was good business, wasn’t it?”
The Doc got sacked in 1977 and he returned to Old Trafford years later only to be issued an invoice for the tickets,
though Tommy Docherty holds no affiliation with United after the ticket disagreement and that put a sour taste on the friendship bond.
Docherty finds solace in seeing Chelsea and games and sometimes attends Manchester City fixtures
“Chelsea has sent me a Christmas hamper from Harrods for the last 18 years that must cost around £300,” The Doc added.
“That’s a terrific gesture and I still go to Stamford Bridge to watch them about four times a year. So there are big clubs that act like big clubs, and some that act like small clubs.
“I won’t be back at United after them charging me for my tickets about three years ago. I got an invoice for £88 for two seats so that was it for me. If I fancy a game locally I’ll phone up Mike Summerbee at City and they always look after me. But I’m done with United.”
