FORMER Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal launched a stinging attack on Jose Mourinho this week and claimed his successor at Manchester United is producing “boring” and “defensive” football.The outburst by the veteran tactician following United’s 2-1 defeat at home to rivals Man City certainly raised a few sniggers and led to accusations of hypocrisy.The Dutchman, who seemed to forget that he was blasted for his often tedious, possession-heavy football at Old Trafford claimed: “If you ask me how did I do at United, I will say it was my best year ever, given the circumstances I was working under.“What United produce now is defensive football.
