Manchester United News: United could sign Chelsea defender in January, Maradona praises Mourinho and more - 14th November 2018
All the latest Manchester United news in one place!
#1 Manchester United could sign Gary Cahill in January
Chelsea have reportedly given Gary Cahill the green signal to leave Stamford Bridge in January next year.
The 32-year-old has fallen out of favour under Maurizio Sarri, with the Italian boss preferring Antonio Rudiger and David Luiz in the heart of the defence. He has registered only 21 minutes of first-team football since the start of the season.
Manchester United are said to be interested in signing Cahill as a short-term solution to their defensive woes this season.
#2 Maradona rates Mourinho above Guardiola
Former Argentina coach and legend Diego Maradona has praised Jose Mourinho for his style of management. Apparently, the 58-year-old has rated the United boss above his long-term nemesis, City boss Pep Guardiola.
Speaking to Marca via Goal.com about his choice he said:
"For me yes, Mou is the best. I would give Pep the merit of taking advantage of the launch that Johan Cruyff gave him."
"I have said on more than one occasion that tiki-taka was not invented by Guardiola. It was 'Flaco' Cruyff."
"At the moment Pep is able to choose any player in the world that he wants. That way tiki-taka is easier."
#3 Adnan Januzaj hits out at Jose Mourinho
Former Manchester United sensation Adnan Januzaj has blasted boss Jose Mourinho for not giving him a fair chance to prove himself at Old Trafford.
The Belgian was a beacon of hope for the faltering Red Devils during their miserable 11-month tenure under David Moyes. Januzaj's career started going downhill with the arrival of Louis Van Gaal and continued its slide after Jose Mourinho took over.
Speaking about his times at the club to Sky Sports, he said:
“I didn’t really get a chance because at the time he [Mourinho] probably wanted more experienced players with names."
“For me, it wasn’t a problem. I had to move on and now I am happy in Spain and making a difference. I always knew I had the quality to play for Manchester United. I know what I am capable of."
“They didn’t give me a chance but it’s not a problem. I am happy in Spain and enjoying my football.”
