- Eric Cantona has taken a fresh swipe at Jose Mourinho performance at Manchester United
- Mourinho was criticised by the club legend earlier this year
- Cantona insists Mourinho must allow the team to play with freedom like Fergie did in his days
Manchester United legend Eric Cantona has blasted Jose Mourinho for the umpteenth time for not allowing the Red Devils squad members play with freedom during matches.
According to a UK Sun report, the 52-year-old Cantona, faulted the Portuguese manager early in the season after discovering that United were lacking fun and creativity during matches.
The club legend while writing on Players’ Tribune, has outlined the key factor responsible for Manchester United’s success story under Alex Ferguson.
“All the time, I get asked the same questions about my career.
“‘What was it like playing for those United teams? Why did you do so well?’
“People want some kind of complex answer. They want some kind of secret, I think. But the answer is very simple.
“Sir Alex Ferguson was the master of one thing: Whenever we took the pitch for a match, after hours and hours of work, we were allowed to be free.
“We felt total freedom to move where we wanted, to play how we wanted. I could tolerate football no other way. What is football if it is not about freedom?”
Interestingly, during his stay at Old Trafford, Cantona won four Premier League titles with the Red Devils under Ferguson.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously had reported that Manchester United legend and Wales manager Ryan Giggs has firmly backed under pressure United manager Jose Mourinho and said that he should definitely stay as manager.
Mourinho's has had his worst days as United gaffer so far this season with many fans feeling dissatisfied by their teams lackluster display in the new season.
ESPN reported that Wales manager Giggs was present when his former team was booed off at Old Trafford following a frustrating draw against Valencia in the Champions League.
